Benny Blanco told Zane Lowe of Beats 1 about the song;
“This is how I work on records. This is how I work on records.I’m not a part of this like old school, like, one person does this. If I have a homie over, and they’re listening to the song and they’re like, ‘Oh, I got a guitar lick for that,’ or ‘Let me throw some drums on that,’ ‘Let me let me do this’… For me, it’s just the way music comes together. It doesn’t have to be like a job. It is supposed to be fun. If we wanted jobs, we would’ve taken nine to fives, behind desks.”
