Songfacts®:

  • This tongue-in-cheek ode to excess finds Charli dreaming of a lifestyle with "gold coins everywhere" and "platinum troubles drowning in pink champagne."
  • Charli penned the song with Patrik Berger (Robyn, Lana del Rey). The Swede also co-wrote and produced "I Love It" as well as four other Sucker cuts. Charli told Spin magazine the pair like to write fast and spontaneously. "We just go to his place and we'll write till like 5 a.m. and get up and 10 and do it again," said the English songstress. "We don't think - it's like the first thing that comes out of my mouth is the cut on the record. I always think that if it's there in the first half hour it's probably really good, and if it's not you should move on."
