This song was produced by and features the New York electro duo Ratatat. Cudi told AOL that he was a fan of the twosome even before he asked them to help out on the album and once they came on board he learnt a lot from them. He added: "Ratatat really helped me think outside the box when it came to the production and when it came to melody and feeling. They have a lot of melodies in their production that just feel right. All their beats make colors. A typical hip-hop beat... Well, sometimes they have melodies that are strong, but they're not beautiful. I wanted to bring beautiful back. Even the dark melodies on the album are beautiful."
