This melodic goodbye to an ex is one of four songs on Talk a Good Game penned by R&B songwriter Kevin Cossum. Rowland told Fader magazine: "He'd write them in like 20 minutes, and once he was finished with one, I'd be like, Let's do another one! We probably did about 10 songs together, and of course we had to condense those down."
The Harmony Samuels produced song weaves in interpolations of the Whispers' 1987 hit "Rock Steady."
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
"Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man deals with lead singer John Gourley becoming a "rebel just for kicks" after having a daughter and settling down. "It's hard to be a punk when you're thinking about your baby daughter at home," he says.
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
