  • Charli XCX penned this song with Rivers Cuomo. Asked by The Sun how she met the Weezer vocalist, Charli replied: "He started following me on Twitter, which I thought was cool, and so I hit him up and asked him. I hate working with new people, unless I am a really big fan, but Rivers is the nicest dude ever, so kind and quiet. I just went over to his house and we wrote a song together."
