Dua Lipa wrote the sultry tune with Canadian producer Jon Levine (Rachel Platten's "Fight Song
") and English singer-songwriter Lauren Christy (G-Eazy's "Me, Myself & I
"). She recalled:
"I wrote the song in L.A. with a woman called Lauren Christy and a guy called Jon Levine. We were like, 'Why don't we just write about being happy in your skin and being proud of who you are?' The main meaning that I wanted to get behind it was the whole idea that you have to be proud of who you are and not listen to anyone that wants you to fit some sort of criteria or certain type of box."
