Xavi is part of Tommy Brown's Champagne Therapy Music Group collective, which he explained to Genius
has a "whoever is there to work on the record, works" vibe.
For this song, the Hawaiian beatmaker's contribution came about when he was in the kitchen and Brown asked him, "Hey Xavi, you tryna put drums on this real quick?" Xavi put on his headphones and "knocked them out in 10 minutes right there on the countertop."
Though Grande loved the song, it never made her Positions
album. "There are so many demos at the house that never get released," Xavi said, so he thought nothing of it, but when he received the paperwork from Demi Lovato's people, its omission from Positions
started making sense.
