It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 5, making it the first Showtek release to chart in the UK, on 27 October 2013. A remix EP featuring Lucky Date and Cash Cash's remixes among others was released on 8 November 2013.[4] "Booyah" is an electro-house song with reggae influences and a drum and bass section. The song opens with Wilson's shouting intro, and then his verse begins. As the drop ends, Wilson sings his verse again, however, it is sped up, and more music is played by Showtek and We Are Loud! and as the verse comes to an end, Wilson holds his last word in an autotuned voice and the drop begins.
