The single was written and recorded by Kiesza within just one hour and the video was shot in one take in New York.

One reason to mope ? - Not for Kiesza ! Because of her accuracy with firearms in the navy , the army tried to recruit her as a snipe , but she politely declined . Instead, Kiesza decided to make music and the press is enthusiastic : "Something astounding this way comes" ( Notion Magazine) .
