Old Dominion frontman Matthew Ramsey penned this song during a writing session with the band's lead guitarist Brad Tursi and songwriter/producer Ross Copperman. The song came together quickly before Ramsey left to pick up his daughters from school. It was only later on the trio realized that they had had come up with a lyric championing "girl power." Writing in an essay for Refinery29
, Ramsey explained:
"Here we thought we had hastily spit out a song that sounded like a fun 'hit' song that girls would want to hear and went about our day. A few days later when I listened back I heard something different. When I called Ross and Brad, I was happy to find they had the same experience. Underneath the candy-coated melody and popping production of the demo was a surprising message of female empowerment."
