Background and release[edit]

"Boom Boom" was written by British recording artist Jay Sean, and produced by Jeremy Skaller and Robert Larow under their stage name Orange Factory Music.[2] It was released digitally on 2 July 2012,[3] and physically on 6 July 2012.[4] On 1 October 2012, it was announced that Justice Crew signed to American rapper Pitbull's record label Mr. 305 Inc., a joint venture with RCA Records, to release "Boom Boom" in the United States.[5] "Boom Boom" was originally recorded by Pitbull for his own album. However, he turned it down and the song was eventually given to Justice Crew.[5] Pitbull heard "Boom Boom" during his visit to Australia for his Planet Pit World Tour in August 2012 and recognised the song.[5] He then visited the Sony Music Australia headquarters and watched the music video for "Boom Boom", and he and his management were impressed with Justice Crew's dancing skills.[5] They invited Justice Crew to perform the song at his concert in sydney.[5]
