The cut was produced and arranged by Salaam Remi, who has also worked with Amy Winehouse, Nas and Jazmine Sullivan. Furtado told Artist Direct
: "That was one of the first tracks I wrote with Salaam Remi. It's interesting, and I decided to put it on the album because I really believe in dark and light going together. You always have to honor the dark side to somewhat. I put the song there because it was one of the first songs for the album. Salaam ended up doing three or four tracks total, and they're some of my favorites."
