Romeo and Juliet symbolism is sprinkled across many of the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom lyrics. This song is an extension of the doomed love story in which Halsey admits during a house party that she is a socialite with a dark side. The setting is a parallel to the masquerade ball hosted by the Capulet family in Romeo and Juliet.
I know you're dying to meet me, but I can just tell you this Baby as soon as you meet me, you'll wish that you never did
Halsey discourages her pursuer at the party, warning him of the inevitable hurt when the relationship breaks down.
Halsey released a remix featuring London rapper Stefflon Don on the bridge and Big Sean who spits a verse in which he advices the social butterfly to settle down with somebody.
A second remix by Calvin Harris, who gives the track a bass-heavy house spin, was released on April 20, 2018. This version retains Stefflon Don's vocals.
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
