Ronald Bell, the group's saxophonist and musical arranger explained the origins of the song:

"The initial idea came from the Quran. I was reading the passage, where God was creating Adam, and the angels were celebrating and singing praises. That inspired me to write the basic chords, the line, 'Everyone around the world, come on, celebration".
