About Higher

"Higher" is a song performed by British-Irish girl group The Saturdays taken from their debut extended play, Headlines!. Written by Ina Wroldsen and co-written & produced by Arnthor Birgisson, the song confirmed to be the EP's second single when it was released on 1 November 2010 by Fascination Records. In preparation for its release, the single was remixed to feature new vocals from American rapper Flo Rida after the rapper's single "Club Can't Handle Me" beat the group's previous single "Missing You" to number one; it was the second time they had lost the position to Flo Rida. Rochelle Wiseman jokingly said that the group would never get a number one until they collaborated with him. Flo Rida personally offered the collaboration for both his and the group's fans. Critics generally praised the song as the strongest offering from Headlines!, for being infectious, catchy and feisty, although it received negative reception for overproduction. An accompanying music video for the song was shot in Los Angeles at Fox Studios, at the end of August 2010, and features the girls dancing through a New York City traffic jam. The single remix of the song premiered on 16 September 2010 through Capital FM, while a new version of the video featuring Flo Rida premiered on 9 October 2010. "Higher" was successful, peaking in the top-ten in the Scottish and UK singles charts as well as top-fifteen in Ireland. It also won the 2011 Popjustice £20 Music Prize.

I'm doing nothing
'Cause then at least I'm doing nothing wrong
And I'm staying on my own
And turn off my telephone
But nothings gained, nothings won

Yeah, you can tell them,
Yeah, you can say whatever
I don't care, yeah
But if you wanna play it cool
Then I got news for you
It's getting hotter, hotter in here

So, when I speak, listen
This is my decision
But you keep on messing up the words (oh, oh, oh)
So when I speak, listen,
'Cause you keep on pushing,
Like I need permission to be heard (oh, oh, oh)
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
So when I speak, listen
This is my decision
But you keep on messing up the words

It's getting closer
I'm movin' in and there are things ya know,
And I am sick of playing games
And I'm not go'n say no names
But you are not who to blame

Yeah, you can turn off
Yeah, you can go ahead and put it straight
'Cause I am finishing myself
And I do not need your help
I'm gonna do this tonight

So, when I speak, listen
This is my decision
But you keep on messing up the words (oh, oh, oh)
So when I speak, listen
'Cause you keep on pushing
Like I need permission to be heard (oh, oh, oh)
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
So when I speak, listen
This is my decision
But you keep on messing up the words

I'm gonna lift it, lift it
When you say higher, I go higher
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Yeah, you can try, but I go higher
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
The only thing that I've been tryin' to do is listen, so listen

So, when I speak, listen
This is my decision, (yeah, yeah)
But you keep on messing up the words (oh, oh, oh) (you keep on messing up my words)
So when I speak, listen
'Cause you keep on pushing
Like I need permission to be heard (oh, oh, oh)
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
I'm gonna lift it, lift it
Higher
So when I speak, listen
This is my decision
But you keep on messing up the words
