Songfacts®:

  • This collaboration with pop singer-songwriter Charli XCX contains elements of calypso and trap: "I wanted to send Charli something that was poppier for me," Mura Masa told Noisey. "But more of a left turn for her. I mean, she's a pop star and I'm not. You could say I make pop music, but there's something else going on there was well - it's not just brazen pop. But I thought it'd be fun to meet her halfway."
