The instrumentation was supplied by frequent collaborator Nick Mira. "I'd say the number one important thing to me when I'm making a beat is always my melody," he told Genius
regarding this song's production. "If I don't have my melody right or the actual musical components of the beat, then I just can't focus from there on out."
"Always after my melodies, I go straight to my drums," he added. "The most bounce was the hi-hats. So I turned the release down. Chopped it so it sounds like a shaker. Like a 'chka chka.' And then after I had all that, the main thing that tied it all together… It's just a simple, really simple 808 pattern."
