The collaboration came about when Diplo was looking for new material for his Thomas Wesley project. The DJ reached out to Nashville-based manager Seth England, whose clients include Wallen, along with better known names such as Florida Georgia Line and Chris Lane. England sent over several songs, including a tune Wallen worked on.
"(Seth) was like, 'Oh, by the way, I also want to throw in this one with this kid' - me - which is a song that I had put my voice on," Wallen recalled to Billboard
. "And they ended up liking that one the best."
