Trainor explained the background to the tune: "This song is for my dad GT, what's up Gary, I miss you. This song was inspired by my music video for 'Better When I'm Dancin'
.' I have my father in it, dancing like a fool. He killed it. It's everyone's favorite part and I knew right away for this album I have my mom song
, I have my thank you song to my fans and I needed a dad song - I had to do it. "
