The song was produced by Ricky Reed ((Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty
," Pitbull's "Fireball
"). He wasn't familiar with Fifth Harmony's work which actually helped his production. Reed explained to Spin
: "I didn't know any of the dynamics - who's usually lead, who's not usually lead - so we had them all sing the song top to bottom. Immediately in the verses, I was like, 'Normani [Kordei], you got this. You're killing this one. Let's have you kind of float towards the surface.' Somebody at the label was like, 'That's awesome. She traditionally doesn't do the lead.'"
