"Lick Ya Down" is the debut single released by Barbados-based pop group Cover Drive. The single was released on August 28, 2011 as a digital download in the United Kingdom, taken from their debut album Bajan Style. On September 4, 2011, the song entered at number 9 on the UK Singles Chart for the week ending September 10, 2011.


In an interview with Digital Spy the group were asked to describe their single, Amanda from the group said: "'Lick Ya Down' is a phrase from Barbados which contrary to popular belief in the UK is not 'naughty' - It means 'knock ya down'! We had to add in an explanation at the beginning of the video of what it means as everyone thought it was something else. There's a lot of fun, attitude and energy in there." A music video to accompany the release of "Lick Ya Down" was first released onto YouTube on 13 July 2011 at a total length of three minutes and thirty-five seconds. At the end of the music video, when the group gets in the car, their second single 'Twilight' begins to play.[1]
