They had previously told us the following about the song, "We are always trying to push ourselves musically and this to us is a huge step. A track that is written, produced and sung on by us.

"Our aim to is to make our music more personal and while this is a fun relatable topic its something that well, is def true to our lives haha... we had a lot of fun making this song and shout out to the AMAZINGLY talented Halsey for crushing her verse. If you had asked us a year ago who our #1 ideal collaboration would be with, you guessed it, it would be Halsey. She is so authentic, talented and real and connected to her fans, she is truly a rare one of a kind artists and to be doing this track with her is so SICK!"
