I Love It by Icona Pop featuring Charli XCX was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 6, 2013 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. On the face of it the song is a celebration of a champagne-swilling lifestyle, but at the time the Icona Pop duo were both broke and heartbroken, which is reflected in their adaptation's stomping beats and angry lyrics. "The song was written at a time when we were in living in London and didn't have anything," explained Jawo to Billboard. "We didn't even have a real bed to sleep in when we sang that song. I think you can hear our frustration and anger, plus the heartache. It's a very honest song for us." The song first gained attention in the United States as the theme song for the MTV Jersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWoww. The track then received a massive boost when it was featured in an episode of the HBO show Girls, during a scene in which creator-star Lena Dunham's character Hannah dances in slow-motion whilst on a cocaine binge at a Brooklyn club. The song debuted at #1 on the UK singles chart. The tune's ascension to peak position was helped by it soundtracking an advert for Samsung mobile phones.
