  • This song found Francis collaborating with Martin Garrix before the teenage Dutch DJ was well known. Francis told Billboard magazine that he found instant creative chemistry with Garrix during the two studio sessions that produced this song. "I went to Martin's house before he put out 'Animals,'" the American electronic producer said. "He still had only like 10,000 Twitter followers, and we were just hanging out with his parents. It was awesome because he seemed just like me and he's an amazing producer."
