Herby, whose previous career was as the vocalist for Karmin, wrote this song with Zak Waters, who goes by the name Pretty Sister - they met at a songwriting camp put on by Alex Da Kid. "There are some songwriters you meet and you're like, 'You're going to be in my life forever," Herby told Songfacts
. "I had this melody but needed a concept and a lyric. We sat there for like two hours and hammered it out. He came up with 'Deepak Chopra orange soda,' which I thought was the most brilliant lyric I've ever heard, and the rest of the song just wrote itself."
