  • Rachel Platten graduated from Trinity College with a degree in international relations in 2003, then moved to New York City's Greenwich Village and embarked on a music career. This is Rachel's ode to New York City, where she depicts various contrasting scenarios including a busker singing the blues on Manhattan's Spring Street and "Wall Street, chic life."
  • Rachel Platten wrote the song with Nash Overstreet, who is the guitarist of pop-rock band Hot Chelle Rae. Overstreet's other songwriting credits include Cassadee Pope's "I Am Invincible."
