  • I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 32

    Andy Grammer told Pop Crush how this was inspired by a track by a famous pop songstress. "Taylor Swift came out with a song called '22.' This is my ridiculous version at 32."
  • Andy Grammer wrote this song with:

    Warren "Oak" Felder who together with his frequent songwriting partner, Andrew "Pop" Wansel, has produced several of Nicki Minaj's hit singles. His other credits range from Alessia Cara's consecutive hits "Here" and "Scars to Your Beautiful" to Usher's "Good Kisser" and Tory Lanez's "Say It."

    Downtown Trevor Brown, who is one of Oak's producers.

    Former Evanescence member David Hodges, who has co-penned hits for Kelly Clarkson ("Because Of You") and Christina Perri ("A Thousand Years").
  • Grammer told Billboard he is especially proud of the song's bass drop. He said:

    "I wrote that with a couple friends, one of them is this guy Oak — he did 'Sorry Not Sorry,' by Demi Lovato. To have him be a part of that, it just so nuts. When the bass hits, it almost moves your car. It's great. It makes me so happy."
