Toronto producer Sevn Thomas, best known for his work on Rihanna and Drake's "Work
," came up with the beat along with Rex Kudo. He told Billboard
the pair had been in the studio since midnight the night before as they like to "binge work." Kudo played him a sample and he "reversed it, pitched it, transposed it and I just built the whole beat around it and found the pocket."
Thomas added it was just one of those beats that appeared to make itself. "It just worked perfectly," he said. "It kind of has a bounce where you can really rap to it but I like what she did with the record because it was really soft and introspective."
