Pablo Díaz-Reixa helped Twigs find the nerve to ask The Weeknd to contribute a guest verse. "Honestly, in its very beginning, I couldn't imagine he would say yes," she told Variety
. "Pablo (thought I was being silly and that, of course, The Weeknd would want to be on it. We got up the confidence to write the text - you know how your friend gasses you up to do something - so I did it, sent him the MP3, and he knocked out the vocals within two weeks. He loved it."
Twigs couldn't believe it when The Weeknd agreed. Having the Canadian superstar feature on her song gave her a real boost that she can reach out to anyone she might want to work with. She later wrote the Caprisongs track "Lightbeamers
" about having the courage to reach out for her wishes.
