Nick Jonas named his side project band after his fascination with the concept of the presidency. Several of the tracks on Who I Am, including this one, tie in with his interest in the Oval Office.
This song has the same sort of vibe that John Mayer had on his early albums. "I admire his work and I think that using some of his songs as inspiration for this was a big thing," Jonas explained to MTV News.
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
