Lady Gaga told Dallas radio station Kiss 106.1 about how this collaboration came about. "I worked with Adam. I think it was last week," Gaga said. "They called me. They asked me to write for him. I was actually like, 'Geez, I got this record that I wrote a while ago.' It's, like, a total hit, smash record, but for some reason, I couldn't get it right with me doing it, and I said, 'Gosh, it would be perfect for him.'"
