The original song, “Is Maith Liom É”, is the only rap entry and performed completely in the Irish language. The original English version, “I Like It”, was written, produced and recorded at GMCBeats/Music Generation studio kabin in Knocknaheeny as part of the Webwise anti-cyberbullying campaign and it was performed at Dublin Castle in February 2015 for Safer Internet Day and the music video (created by Limbo) went viral in the days after.
