Thomas wrote the song with Rico Love when they were in Miami. She recalled to Artist Direct
: "We did a week in the studio working. I sat down at the keyboard and played a little melody. We put some drums on it. We put the writing on there. It happened really organically."
"I remember Rico left the studio that night," Thomas continued. "There were like 16 bars for the rap, and I think I spent all night in the studio writing that rap. He came in the next day and listened to it, and we were both like, 'This is dope.'
"It sounds really different," she concluded. "I wanted my first single to be something that sounds different from all the other things on the radio. I wanted people to hear me rap and sing as well on my first look."
