I'll Make It Up To You

Songfacts®:

  • This '80s-inspired song features a guitar solo by Imagine Dragons axeman Wayne Sermon. Vocalist Ryan Reynolds told Billboard magazine about the tune:

    "That song dives into our '80s roots and inspirations. Wayne sat down for a couple hours in the studio by himself and turned the lights down low and this is what he created. It's beautiful and one of my favorite moments on the record. It breathes and takes time. He's a tasteful guitarist, and subtle at times, and that's really one of his greatest strengths."
