• MGK recruited Cabello, after being impressed by a YouTube clip of her singing with just
some guitar accompaniment. He said:
"She was belting the notes out, not using AutoTune, and it was just beautiful"
• Cabello said about working on the song:
"I think it's beautiful and I felt connected to it right away- the beauty and contradiction of innocence of the 'good' girl character who has these feelings about the 'bad' boy that she just can't deny.
• The song samples
Out Of My Head
(1998) during the chorus.
Asked if he was bothered by the re-arrangement of his original words,
Fastball's Tony Scalzo said:
"Not at all. I think it's great, because it's super-creative... it's something totally different.
I'm not totally familiar with the artists - obviously I did a little research
a month ago when it was brought on the table -- but I think that they basically
were familiar with the tune, right? I don't think they went as far as to even try to cover the tune,
they just basically re-wrote a lot of the words, and changed the meaning around,
and that's really innovative and awesome."
