“Troublemaker” is a song by Olly Murs from his 3rd studio album “Right Place, Right Time”. The song will be released on 18 November, 2012 and will feature vocals from American rapper Flo Rida.
“Troublemaker” was written by Murs along with Claude Kelly and Steve Robson, with whom he also wrote his previous hits “Please Don’t Let Me Go” and “Dance With Me Tonight”. Lyrically Murs has said that the song is about “that special girl that you can’t shake off, even if you know you should because, let’s face it, she’s got a bit of a wild side.” Claude Kelly confirmed his writing/production involvement with the song on his Twitter page, saying: “It’s a fun one … it’s uptempo but not clubby/dance”.
Of Flo Rida’s appearance on the track, Murs said that he had expected getting him to appear on the track to be difficult but that it was “kind of easy, in a way. [It] wasn’t hard … We just literally sent him the track, his people heard the track and they really liked it. And Flo Rida was like, ‘I really want to do it’. So he was up for doing it.”
Flo Rida spoke about Murs and his appearance on the track during a promotional interview for his single “I Cry” on ITV breakfast show Daybreak on 26 September 2012, saying: “I’m very excited, [my record company said] we have this record from a guy named Olly. As soon as I heard it, I know a hit record when I hear it. I’ll probably have a chance to meet him soon.”
The music video for the song was shot in Los Angeles, California over two days on 21 and 22 September 2012. An American casting agency site revealed in their advert that the story of the video revolves around Murs and a female lead who is “so ditzy she keeps getting fired from her jobs, and by coincidence, keeps crossing paths with Olly.”
Another casting agency released a montage of pictures from the set of filming of the video on their Facebook page on 26 September, including a shot of Murs being arrested by a police officer.  Flo Rida shot his part of the video separately to Murs in Miami, Florida on 30 September, and released a picture of himself at the filming on his Instagram account that same day.
Capital FM confirmed on 5 October 2012 that the song would receive its first radio airplay on the following Monday, 8 October on the Breakfast show.
The tracklisting and artwork for the single was unveiled on 2 October 2012 on Murs’ official webstore. It is the first single release of his in the UK since “Heart Skips a Beat” to be released on CD.[
