This was the first time that Sarah Buxton, Jesse Frasure and Abe Stoklasa has written together. Frasure recalled to The Boot
"We knew Chris for a while. Sarah writes at Big Loud, and he was on tour with [Florida Georgia Line], and I think I met him first through Florida Georgia Line. When we sat down to write this song - Abe's an amazing musician and songwriter; he's had a bunch of cuts - we really didn't have an agenda at all. It was kind of a pop song.
Sometimes you have targets in mind, but this is one, we just sat down and wrote. We were kind of channeling a little bit of Hall & Oates, R&B-flavored kind of thing, and obviously using some pretty progressive language and name-dropping."
