The French version included vocals by French rapper Franglish.

In 2021 the song charted across Europe, Australia, Latin America, and New Zealand, reaching number one in India, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland, and gained popularity across TikTok. It also peaked at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart and reached number one on the UK Indie Singles Chart.
