Coi Leray started working with more writers towards the end of 2022. She'd collaborated with writers in the past but was a little stubborn. "Like, 'I don't need nobody to write for me,'" she told Billboard
. Now Leray appreciates the value of having a structure for songs and the different perspectives that writers can bring. However, this track came about when she reverted to freestyling.
When Leray went into her session with Johnny Goldstein alongside WorldWideFresh and Feli Ferraro, the group spent an hour and 20 minutes working on a song that ultimately didn't turn out well. Frustrated, she decided to try something different. "This not sounding right. It's too generic. Let me go in there and try something else and do some straight rap s--t," she told them. "No f---king melodies." Leray hopped on the mic and it just flowed: "Girls is players too."
