  • This song features during a pivotal scene in the movie Suicide Squad involving Will Smith's character Deadshot. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys leads off the track, before rapper Action Bronson comes in a couple of verses.
  • The hook interpolates lyrics from Oran "Juice" Jones' 1986 hit "The Rain."
  • The song was produced by Mark Ronson. It is the third collaboration involving Bronson and Ronson, following the Mr. Wonderful tracks "Baby Blue" and "Brand New Car."
  • Speaking about the track, Ronson explained to Beats 1's Zane Lowe, "It never had a home. We didn't finish it in time for Bronson's record, it wasn't right for mine, and then they heard it for the movie Suicide Squad. They dug it and they put it in this great scene with Will Smith and his character."
