    His brother Timothy Thomas added: "Because the sex is better. The passion is there."

    Theron continued: "Yeah, the passion is there. The way that we did it and flipped it, to me, we still feel it's innocent to the ears, it's still there."
  • The song features Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Chloe Angelides. Her writing credits include Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint duet with Ariana Grande, "Get on Your Knees," Jessie J's "Burnin' Up" and Tinashe's "Player."
