This was one of six songs on Reputation
that Jack Antonoff co-wrote. He recalled the collaborative process with Taylor during an Entertainment Weekly
"The sessions were just her and I," he revealed. "She would come over to my apartment, and we would talk and eat and talk more, and the things we talked about turned into songs."
"She is great at remembering the heart and soul of the process. But she's really great at knowing what it's about: talking about what the hell is going on in your life and somehow finding a way to take that exact emotion and make a song out of it," Antonoff continued. "That was the theme of those sessions: 'Let's just tell this story, whatever that story is, because that's the whole point.'"
