The song was written following their win at the annual song contest, according to frontman Damiano David.
“We only had a few days to go to the studio and write new music, but fortunately this song came out in a few hours – that’s why we felt like it was going to be a banger for us,” he said, via Hot Press.
“We didn’t take it too seriously. It’s a very silly, careless song and we’ve never done something like that before. It came together very naturally. We just tried to have fun and enjoy it, because [it was written] in a moment where we were experiencing a lot of things,” added bassist Victoria de Angelis.
The song pokes fun at speculation and rumors about the band after their win, according to Damiano.
“After Eurovision, we had a lot of attention on us. A lot of the time, we did something that we thought was great but people criticized it. I wanted to translate that into the lyrics, because it happens a lot – maybe you’re doing something that you feel is great, but people don’t understand it and make bad judgements and bad comments about it. I wanted to make fun of that situation,” he said.
“Oh, mamma-mamma mia, spit your love on me / I’m on my knees and I can’t wait to drink your rain / I’ll keep the secret if you let me get a taste / Tell me your limits and we’ll cross the line again,” they sing.
