Songfacts®:

  • Mac Miller recruited rapper-singer Anderson Paak to assist him on this disco-funky rumination about a broken relationship. Miller explained on Beats 1 Radio: "Me and Anderson we were talking about doing something and to be honest he sent me that. I told him to send me some ideas and that was one of them and I was like, 'Yo, this is it.' I laid down the s--t, sent it back and the rest is history."
  • Anderson Paak's hook originally had a different context. Miller explained to Genius: "Anderson wrote this for people that passed away in his life - and I didn't know that. I was like, 'Would you be okay if I made this a love song?"
