Song information[edit]

"Tu Es Foutu" describes the end of a relationship. In-Grid tells her lover that she is fed up with his promises and says angrily that he is "screwed"/"fucked" (the literal meaning of "tu es foutu" in French).


The lyrics were written by In-Grid and Marco Soncini, who co-produced the song with Alfredo Larry Pignagnoli. The English version was also co-written by Daniela Galli (also known as Dhany) and Paul Sears.
