The group wrote this song with their producer, Glen Ballard, who later produced Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill
album. Speaking with Songfacts
, Ballard recalled his first meeting with Wilson Phillips: "The first time I met them, they came in and sang a song a cappella for me and it completely blew me out of my chair. They'd been singing together since they were like 4 years old, and the Wilsons were blood sisters, but Chynna was their sister too in the sense that they had grown up together. They sang a million songs together and had already worked it out, so I didn't really have to do anything in terms of their sound - I just had to find a vehicle to put that sound in."
