From the Album
•The song went viral with a "dance challenge" on TikTok, and made Tyla the youngest-ever South African and the first South African soloist in 55 years to enter the US Billboard Hot 100, following Hugh Masekela's "Grazing in the Grass" in 1968.
• The song gained traction on TikTok in August 2023 when Tyla began posting herself doing a dance to the song that was choreographed by South African dancer Litchi, which involves shaking one's hips and kicking one's legs before pouring water down their back in time to the lyrics "Make me sweat, make me hotter, make me lose my breath, make me water".
• The song debuted at number 67 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated 14 October 2023, becoming Tyla's first entry on the chart.
