This song was inspired by the frustration Daley once felt in a past relationship gone sour. "The situation was going nowhere because we both weren't fully able to admit how we felt about each other and just be honest," he explained to Billboard magazine. "And the situation didn't really work out, but for the purposes of writing this song, I just kind of gave it a happy ending and idealized it a little bit."
Daley is joined by Jill Scott on the song. He explained why he recruited the American R&B star for the tune. "When I was in the studio writing the song, I just had a feeling, and I kept hearing Jill's voice in the mix when I was writing," Daley said. "It was kind of strange, almost like it was asking for her energy."
