Witzigreuter told the story of this song in an interview with myYearbook
: "I wrote a first version of that song about a year ago. It used to be called 'Sign of Relief' and it was lyrically way different. It had the same chorus; it had the same melodies and structure. At the time that I wrote it, I just wrote words that sounded cool together. It didn't make too much sense. Then I came back and rewrote the song. I rewrote all the lyrics and tried to make it a little bit more cohesive. Then I went to go work on the song with J.R. Rotem and that drove the whole thing home to make it more hip-hop-ish and straight pop, which is kind of what I wanted to do anyways."
