Songfacts®:

  • This track features Imagine Dragons, who executive produced the VHS album along with Alex da Kid. Vocalist Sam Harris explained to Pop Monitor: "They kind of discovered us and now we're friends. They heard us on a radio station and brought us to a record label and our producer Alex and picked us for their tour, so we owe them. It's like a big brother band. They are like mentors."
  • The song features verses sung by Sam Harris that build up to Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons' anthemic chorus. Harris explained in a track by track commentary: "It's a song about wanting to go bigger, you know. Feeling like you've been working your ass off and someday it's going to pay off, hopefully. That's really what it's about."
