The origins of this track lie in a conversation RaeLynn had with her mother. "I get a lot of my song inspirations from talking to her," she told Billboard magazine. "I was talking about not having a boyfriend that day - my boyfriend and I had broken up a couple of months before. I said, 'Mom, I don't understand why no boys like me. I'm blonde, I think I'm funny, and I can sing a country song. What more do they need?' She said, 'Honey, you don't need a boyfriend. You're just having fun kissing frogs.' I thought 'I've got to write a song called that.'"
The song alludes to the fairy tale The Frog Prince, in which a princess reluctantly befriends a frog. He is magically transformed into a handsome prince after the princess kisses him. Keane's 2006 track "The Frog Prince" alludes to the same story.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
