Songfacts®:

  • This Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins produced track was inspired by a diary that Furtado kept as smitten sixteen-year-old on a summer vacation in her parents birthplace of Sao Miguel, Portugal.
  • This was one of seven collaborations with Jerkins on The Spirit Indestructible. "We wrote most of these records in the middle of the day," Furtado told AOL Music. "Rodney's vibe in the studio is totally different. He just sits there and creates these beats completely on his own, but he's got this crazy, crazy, crazy positive vibration, and he and I, we meet at this very childlike place. I feel like we're two kids throwing sand around in a sandbox. I feel completely liberated making music with Rodney, and he's very open. He lets me go crazy, and I let him go crazy, and we try out different ideas, and it's magical."
