  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Miley Cyrus supplying some backing vocals to Pharrell's melange of sexual metaphors. He explained to The Sun: "I wanted her on that song as I love her tone. It just felt good and that's it and I wanted to make music with people who feel."

    This isn't the first time the duo have worked together, Williams also produced "4x4" and "#GETITRIGHT" for Miley's Bangerz album, (plus a couple more on the Deluxe version).
  • "Bae" is short for "Before Anything Else," or alternatively another way to say babe or baby.
  • The song soundtracks Red Bull's 2014 commercial "World of Red Bull." The advert features clips of music artist AWOLNATION and Skrillex, as well as surfers Sally Fitzgibbons and Jamie O'Brien, b-boy Wing and freestyle motocross rider Thomas Pages.
  • The music video finds Pharrell taking on the role of casting agent as he sits in a studio apartment with a Super 8 camera observing girls dancing. Miley makes a brief appearance in the clip where she busts out some moves without any actual twerking.
