In May 2007 Caro Emerald got a phonecall from Dutch producers Jan van Wieringen and David Schreurs. With another producer, they’d written a song for a Japanese pop act with the acclaimed songwriter Vince Degiorgio (Atomic Kitten, A-Teens, N’Synch, Love Inc. a.o.). But their demo singer couldn’t make it. They needed something quickly, and that’s how Caro got to record the demo of “Back It Up”.
