  • Lyrics
  • Machine Gun Kelly is joined by Hailee Steinfeld on this motivational jam about understanding your worth. It marked MGK's first single since his Billboard Hot 100 hit "Bad Things," featuring another young female pop star: Camila Cabello.
  • The song sends a powerful message of embracing your faults and always staying true to yourself. "If you can't take me at my worst. You don't deserve me at my best," Steinfeld sings on the chorus.
  • The song was produced by The Futuristics, a Los Angeles-based duo comprising Alex Schwartz and Joe Khajadourian. It marks the second collaboration between MGK and The Futuristics, who also produced "Bad Things." The pair's other credits include Flo-Rida's "I Cry" and Natalie La Rose's "Somebody."
