This Dreamlab and Peter Thomas produced song features Spanish and reggae influences. Selena Gomez said during a hour-long livestream that as she gets to travel a lot, she wanted to share an island vibe with her fans: "I wanted a Spanish vibe, but a little bit of a reggae style. It'll make you feel like you want to go to Jamaica or South America."
Gomez adopts a Rihanna-esque island patois in the song, as well as borrowing the Barbadian star's lyric "shine like diamonds in the sky."
The chorus and the beginning of song are taken from Jamaican Dancehall artist Buju Banton's "Champion," which is a track on his 1995 album Til Shiloh.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
