Recording and Releasing

According to Taggart, the track was inspired by the Blink-182 song “I Miss You”, which the duo was listening to on repeat and is referenced in the song. Before Halsey was brought on as the female vocalist, the collaboration was originally supposed to feature former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello. She even said she went as far as doing a recording for it. However, due to commitments with her group, she had to turn the opportunity down. The song is written in the key of A-flat major with a common time tempo of 95 beats per minute and a chord progression of D♭(9)–E♭6add4–Fm7–E♭. The vocals span from E♭3 to B♭5.
