  • Lyrics
  • The original lyrics for the song's outro came from "Girls Born in the '90s," a collaboration with Max Martin that didn't make the Beauty Behind The Madness tracklisting. It was re-recorded and re-titled after it was leaked with "Can't Feel My Face" and "In the Night."
  • The original lyrics from the bridge and hook of "Girls Born in the '90s," appear as the outro to this trap ballad.
  • This re-recorded version features new production from The Weeknd's longtime collaborator Illangelo. The Canadian producer helmed the entirety of The Weeknd's Trilogy of mixtapes, but provided no production on hiss 2013 debut album Kiss Land.
