Songfacts®:

  • This features Austin Mahone's pals, the hip-pop duo Kalin and Myles. The idea for the song came about when one of the pair (Austin doesn't say which one) came over to his house when he was in town. Austin recalled to Entertainment Weekly: "He was talking to me about this girl. He was like, 'Man, I'm stalking this girl on Instagram. She's so beautiful. I'm gonna try to hit her up.' And then he showed me a picture and I was like, 'Oh, bro, that's my old thing right there.' Just joking around. And he was like, 'No way.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I've already been talking to her for a little bit. You're late on that, bro. We're talking to the same girl.' And so we wrote a song about it."
