Songfacts®:

  • This rap/dance hybrid features Ty Dolla $ign. It's represents Afrojack's attempt to make a hip-hop song using EDM sounds. The Dutch producer first met the American singer/rapper at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy gala party in February 2016. Afrojack told Billboard magazine about the collaboration:

    "We just went into the studio to work on multiple things. For me, it's always been about the crossover, especially given the state of how close dance and hip-hop are in America. It's never been this close. They're best friends now. I really wanted to do something different: a radio-friendly record that had enough of both but wasn't like full-on banging; more chilled out and hip-hoppy. We did the first take in one day."
