Song information

The song samples "All My Love", a song by R&B group 112 from their album Room 112.

Various remixes of the song exist. Some radio stations played the pop mix with added drums or a 'Bubbling/Part II' remix by DJ Lipe (Santiago, Chile), featuring additional female vocals. There have also been several reggaeton remixes of the song including one featuring Ivy Queen. A 'Mad Hatters Ball' remix featuring Alison Hinds was also released. In 2008, the song was re-recorded with Hinds for Lyttle's second album, Fyah.

The song performed very well on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number four and staying in the chart for months. It was also successful worldwide, reaching number two in the United Kingdom for two weeks (being the best selling non-new entry song twice), number one in Denmark, and number three in Australia, and remains Lyttle's biggest hit to date.

Cover versions

"Turn Me On" has been covered by numerous artists, including Himanshu Suri, Raghav, Jay Sean, Mumzy Stranger and CocoRosie. There was also a female response from 2 Play called "Got Me Wrong".
