Kesha wrote and recorded the track with LA-based singer/songwriter Wrabel and Drew Pearson (Phillip Phillips' "Home
"). The songstress recalled:
"It was such a beautiful experience to write such a strong female empowerment song with two men, Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel, because it reinforces how supportive men can be of women AND feminism. That day was one of the best writing sessions of my life. It was pure raw joy. I have never had such a wonderful and hilarious work day as I did that day. It was one of those days I'll remember forever, because it brought me back to why I wanted to ever start making music.
We were just making it up as we went. Wrabel and I got in the booth together singing vocals together and I sing 'I do what I want' and he sings 'she does' and I go 'say what you say' and he goes 'aahh' and I go 'work real hard every day' and he starts laughing.
It was one of those songs that just happened as much as it was written. We were like three little kids going f--king crazy. We were just giddy, singing in the vocal booth until we realized that we had somehow (Drew!) gotten ourselves locked in the vocal booth ... we had to call a handyman who helped remove a window so we could crawl out before we died of asphyxiation."
