Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Mars lamenting about getting involved with a woman who stole his money and left him broke. He penned the song with his songwriter friend Benny Blanco and Paul Epworth, the Brit behind Adele's "Rolling In The Deep." "Me and Paul [Epworth] just got together and Bruno wrote an amazing song on top of it. It kind of all came together," Blanco told Rolling Stone. "It's like some throwback Nina Simone type s--t, like 'Sinnerman.' It's Bruno. He can sing the A.B.C.'s and you'd be like, 'Holy f--k!' He knows how to vibe."
