Songfacts®:

  • The big closing ballad on 24K Magic, this was co-written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. The song was one that Mars started writing several years previously, but felt it was missing something. It finally came together after Mars got together with the R&B icon between tours. When he played Babyface the track, the new jack swing virtuoso demanded that they finish it together. "We just went in old school on the piano. He's the coldest," Mars told Bet.com.
  • Babyface is Mars' musical hero. "Music, to me, is all about feeling," he explained. "Before, lyrics, and beats and the new drum sounds, it's about feeling. And he's the best."
