Lyrics and music video

The song was written by Bertrand Châtenet, the music composed and the arrangements made by Philippe Osman. Jérôme Devoise participated in the mixing of the song, with Bertrand Châtenet (both had worked with Mylène Farmer in the 1980s). Background vocals are performed by Priscilla.

In the song, Priscilla says that she likes to make her conspicuous and that for this she does not hesitate to do something unusual. The music video shows Priscilla accompanied by a female friend in a fast-food, where she knocks over a young boy on a skateboard during the first verse, then a waitress during the second verse. When she sings the refrain, she performs a choreography with other girls.

The song is included on many French compilations, such as Girls 2003, Non Stop Hits 5. and Generation Hits.
