Songfacts®:

  • This upbeat pop track is one of two new songs recorded by Selena for her greatest hits project For You, (the other one is "The Heart Wants What It Wants.") She described the tune to 98-7 AMP Radio's Gillian Reilly and HaZe as a, "cute little catchy song and I thought it'd be a great little bonus track for the album."
  • The track was co-written and produced by the production duo Rock Mafia. Selena worked with the pair on her previous albums, including the Selena Gomez and The Scene hit singles, "Naturally," and "Love You Like a Love Song."
