  • Lyrics
  • Best known for the videos that he uploads onto his YouTube channel, this was the first tune that Ricky Dillon wrote entirely on his own. "The song is kind of about how when you listen to a song, you get put into a trance and you just can't help but dance," he told Billboard magazine "It's kind of a song about a song. It's kind of dark - most of my songs are light and upbeat. This one's got more of like a dark feel and the vocals are more my niche."
  • The music video takes inspiration from such one continuous shot street dancing clips as Kiesza's "Hideaway" and Miley Cyrus' "Start All Over."
