  • Lyrics
  • This Latin track is a collaboration with Cuban singer Malu. Hrvy explained to OfficialCharts.com:

    "I just wanted to try something different. It's a collaboration with one of my friends Malu, a Latin-American teen artist who has done some great things in the Latin market, so we thought to cross network and do a Spanish/English song. I've been to Mexico and have been writing and recording there, and I just think that the Spanish language sounds super sexy on a song, even if I don't understand it."
  • The song is about connecting with someone and not wanting to say goodbye, as you fear you won't see them again. ("Hasta luego" means "see you later" in Spanish, after which Hrvy says, "but she don't know my name though.") He explained to Genius that the lyrics came from personal experiences.

    "You've met a girl, and you're speaking to her ,and you're so invested in her, and it's like you've told her your whole life story," Hrvy said. "And she probably knows more than other people that you're, like, your best friends knows, and you're like, 'I don't even know her name.' By the end of it, she's gone and you're like, 'I didn't even catch her name or where she was from.' You were so invested in talking to each other you didn't even find out the basics, like her name. So that's where it kind of came from."
