Frank Ocean first met Boys Noize in Berlin. The producer was working there on ASAP Rocky's "Babushka Boi
" track when Ocean showed up. After the pair played around with a few ideas, Boys Noize took what they'd come up with and developed it.
"The first half of the song was something that got created together," the producer told Complex
. "I think the most important part is the initial vibe you have and the ideas. When I produce music, it evolves all the time. Personally, I like to sit on music as well and add ideas. That's something that happened to that song. You create something and then you live with it for a while and let it breathe."
