Songfacts®:

  • This bouncy and brassy track finds Camilla Cabello catching feelings for someone she knows she shouldn't.

    Oh no, there you go, making me a liar
    Got me begging you for more
    Oh no, there I go, startin' up a fire


    The singer fights temptation, until she can't resist.

    I picture your hands on me
    I think I wanna let it happen
  • The song was released as the double lead single off Cabello's second solo album, Romance, on September 5, 2019, alongside "Shameless." The two songs were written on the same day about the same situation.

    Cabello explained to 97.1 AMP Radio that she had been denying her feelings for a guy. The tracks, she said, are "about a person I didn't want to have feelings for and I didn't want to face my feelings. I didn't want to like him because I was scared."
  • Andrew Watt and The Monsters & Strangerz's production channels classic Latin vibes with subtle flamenco influences.
  • The song interpolates a couple of classic tunes: Lionel Richie's 1983 single "All Night Long (All Night)" and Ace of Base's 1992 song "All That She Wants."
