During a June 2012 video interview, Ariana described her debut album as being "'50s, '60s Doo-Wop-inspired." Later in the year, she met up with her label and expressed dissatisfaction with the direction the album was taking. Ariana expressed a desire instead to make the type of '90s urban Pop music she grew up listening to. Most of the previously finished songs for the record were scrapped, except for this song, "Tattooed Heart
" and "Honeymoon Avenue
," which were all reworked from their original Doo-Wop sound to one with a turn of the century Pop feel.
