“When I Grow Up” samples the main riff from The Yardbirds song “He’s Always There” off their 1966 studio album Roger the Engineer, and as a result, British songwriters Jim McCarty and Paul Samwell-Smith have received writing credits for the song.
They have performed the song on the MTV Movie Awards, So You Think You Can Dance, Jimmy Kimmel, The Today Show and Fashion Rocks 2008.
The music video was nominated for 6 MTV VMAs (including Video of the Year) and it won Best Dancing in a Video.
