  • Adele's 30 album follows her journey of heartache after her divorce, before moving on and embarking on new relationships. She wrote this flirty uptempo jam about feeling ready to date again.
  • Adele penned the lyrics about wanting a fulfilling relationship rather than a succession of one-night stands. She viewed the LA dating scene as too superficial and hedonistic for her tastes. "Watching my friends, it was all casual sex," Adele told Apple Music. "And everyone had slept with each other. And I was like, I'm not doing that. I'm not, I'm not, that's not... I've left my marriage to go forward, not to f---ing go backwards. So that's what that's about."
  • Adele wrote the big pop track with Max Martin and his regular collaborator, Shellback. The English superstar previously collaborated with the Swedish hitmakers on her 25 track "Send My Love (To Your Lover)."
