The song was one of several tracks on Warrior
where Kesha teamed up with Dr. Luke. The hit-making producer told MTV News that they wanted to shake up her sound on the record. "There's a lot of up-tempo music there, but there are definitely some very raw songs in there with not a whole lot of production," he explained. "She's singing songs with no doubles on it from the beginning to the end of the song, which you never hear in music anymore. She has a stellar voice, and it's funny that a lot of people haven't realized that, but they will now, for sure."
Kesha and Dr. Luke later had a falling out, which played out in court
when Kesha filed a lawsuit in 2014.
