"This Girl" is a song by Australian DJs and producers Stafford Brothers and Eva Simons featuring T.I.. It was released as a single in Australia on 27 June 2014[1] and globally on 12 August 2014.

The Stafford Brothers first leaked the collaboration via an exclusive private performance alongside Eva Simons in a Sydney warehouse in January 2014.[2] Chris Stafford says "We knew it was shaping up to be a great track when we first heard Eva's vocals, we were thrilled when we heard from management that T.I. was into it and wanted to do a feature. Having such a huge superstar be a part of this is truly amazing and a huge honour."[3]

The song peaked at number 9 on the Australian Dance Chart and number 58 on the overall Australian Singles Chart,[4][5] and number 7 in Belgium dance bubbling under chart.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Mike Wass of Idolator reviewed the song, saying; "“Give me wings, make me fly,” sings the Dutch dance queen over fluttery synths before arriving at the fast and furious chorus, which basically consists of her repeating: “do it one more time for this girl!” T.I shows up towards the end to rap about “making love in the Benz” but the real star is the manic production. After a seemingly endless string of folk-tinged EDM anthems, it's a relief to hear a balls-to-the-wall club banger."[7]

Music video[edit]

The video was filmed in Atlanta, In describing the video, Chris Stafford said, "The first night of filming was like a party because it was in a club and everyone was drinking. The second day was much more serious, but it was in a strip club."[8]

The video for "This Girl" was released on the Stafford Brothers' VEVO account on 3 September 2014.[9]
