  • Austin wrote this song with his friend Robert Villanueva in an unlikely place. "I like to write songs with my friend Robert. I was weird; we wrote it in my bathroom for some reason," he told MTV News. "I mean, it's a pretty random place to write a song, but I know my fans are gonna love it."

    Robert Villanueva is a rapper who rose to fame by posting weekly YouNows with another of Austin's buddy's, Alex Constancio.
  • Austin also produced the song himself. "It's like a different vibe from all the other ones, but it's still pretty good," he told Billboard magazine.
