While working on Scorpion
, Drake sent a number of instrumental ideas to Nai Palm, lead singer of Hiatus Kaiyote, to see if they triggered any melodic ideas. (She ended up singing the outro to "Is There More
"). An early version of this song was one of a number of demos that the Toronto MC floated by Palm. "We were discussing singing about sex in music," she recalled to Rolling Stone interview
"I wrote the first song I've written about sex, but I made it about nerdy mating rituals from the animal kingdom. He messaged me out of the blue like, 'I realized I've never really written a sex song.' He sent me, I can't remember what it's called, maybe 'Final Fantasy'? I was like, 'you're gonna break the internet with this one.'"
