This song was helmed by Grammy-winning producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay-Z). Asked by Artist Direct
how he likes to set up the atmosphere to get the "best take," Bhasker replied that "as a preliminary thing," he likes to "vibe out" and "get to know them." It started with this song when Keys invited him out to dinner so they could get to know each other, before they worked together. "I take a good cue from that and try to spend the first day vibing out," he explained. "It makes it so much easier. You can actually get so much more done after that. They have to trust me first. That's the biggest thing. They have to trust where I'm coming from and what I'm saying. We have to get know each other, and then we can get the best out."
