This song started off as an Avicii produced EDM track, complete with '90s house piano and pulsating strings. It subsequently transformed into a piano ballad. Madonna started working with the Swedish electro producer very early on in the Rebel Heart process, but much of his input has since been de-Avicii-ed.
This is one of a quartet of Rebel Heart tracks that Kanye West helped produce. "It's really hard to describe Kanye in one sentence," Madonna told Complex. "He's a brilliant madman. He can't help himself. Like, he doesn't have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he's always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas."
"I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone's become so politically correct, so safe. I don't always agree with the things he says or does – I don't always like his music, even. But he's a beautiful mess. I love him."
