Songfacts®:

  • This track features vocals by AlunaGeorge's Aluna Francis and rap duo Rae Sremmurd. Aluna Francis recalled her contribution during a Reddit AMA: "I remember meeting Baauer on a crossroads in the streets of New York, it was really busy and hard to find him," she said. "He was pretty shy and it was before 'Harlem Shake.'"

    "I was shy too, so imagine two really quiet people who barely know each other trying to make a song together," Francis continued. "It's in the lyrics, 'You gotta give me something to work with.'"

    "He had the track started," she concluded, "I put it on to piano so that I could work out some vocals and then he finished it off."
