Background[]

In partnership with Sony Music, Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush enlisted professional songwriters and producers to create original music for Big Time Rush. Emanuel "Eman" Kiriakou, who has produced songs for artists such as David Archuleta, was among the music consultants who worked with the band. Kiriakou wrote and produced "I Know You Know" with songwriters Evan Kidd "E. Kidd" Bogart and Lindy Robbins, providing the primary programming and instruments, while Jens Koerkemeier and Pierre Eires assisted with engineering and programming.

Big Time Rush and Cymphonique recorded their vocals in separate sessions at Chalice Recording Studios' Studio E in Los Angeles, California between June–July 2010.[3]

BTR and Kat's Crew's music video for "I Know You Know".

"I Know You Know" is featured in the Big-Time Rush episode "Big Time Girl Group", which is the sixteenth episode in the show's second season. In the episode, Big Time Rush come into conflict with Kat's Crew, a new girl group that Gustavo has signed to Rocqué Records. BTR becomes jealous when Gustavo gives their new song "I Know You Know" to Kat's Crew to perform instead of them. At the end of the episode, the two groups make amends and decide to collaborate, and they film a music video for the song in which they play heroes on a spaceship, fighting against evil aliens and their leader, played by Gustavo. The song later re-appears in the episode "Big Time Girlfriends".

Big Time Rush performed "I Know You Know" live for the first time at their official comeback show in Chicago on December 15, 2021. It was performed during the acoustic leg of their setlist.

Lyrics[]

Maybe this could be the line
That starts the whole story
Maybe you could be the one
The one who's meant for me
I know that I should wait
But what if you're my soulmate?
Slow down
Then you say
Slow down
But we can

Chorus:
We can
Party like the weekend
You got me thinking
We could be a thing yeah
I know you know I got
Your heart thumping
I know you know we know
We got something
We could
Be on to something so good
Tell me that you're mine
I know you know you got
My heart thumping
I know you know we know
We got something

You know this ain't me at all
I'm usually lost for words
You know I can't help but fall
I've never felt so sure
You got me in a hurry
But you don't gotta worry
'Cause I'll slow down
When you say slow down
But we can

Chorus

Right (yeah)
We're two of a kind
So let's party like it's '99
Yeah
I know you know I got
Your heart thumping
I know you know we know
We got something

Hey baby you drive me crazy
It ain't about what you done for me lately
It's all about you no lie it's the truth just wanna say
I gotta big time crush on you
I know you know we could be something
I know you know we got something

Chorus

Right
We're two of a kind
So let's party like it's '99
Yeah
Yeah I know you know we know
We got something
