Candy was the first single to be released from Robbie's No.1 album Take The Crown.
Written with Gary Barlow and as addictive as the subject of its title, here's what Robbie had to say about the release:
“It’s a summer song about a girl who thinks she’s great. And she might be, but she’s a bit nefarious with her ways. Some songs take an age to write and some songs just fall out of your mouth, completely formed, and you don’t have to think about it. I don’t know why that fell out of my mouth and out of my brain at that particular time - it just did.”
The track went straight to No.1 in the UK following its release in October 2012 and became Robbie's 14th career Number 1. The video, which saw Robbie play a (very modern) guardian angel protecting the subject of the song's title, experienced equal success, being crowned best video at the 4Music Video Honours.
