[edit]Critical receptionEdit

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy blog gave the song a positive review stating:

"It's not about what you've done, it's about what you're doing," he aptly states over Calvin's unmistakable electronic flourishes of euphoric synths and speaker-jumping beats, which happens to soundtrack an impressive footballer-starring Pepsi Max ad campaign. Coincidentally, the final result isn't too different from the fizzy beverage; it's sparkling, addictive and sure to give you a burst of energy. .[5]

[edit]Music videoEdit

The music video was released on May 14, 2012 on Vevo. It begins with the people all around the world doing something and also exciting things before one of them goes to the club where Harris is seen DJing the party. Ne-Yo appears in the back seat in the car singing the song.
