This euphoric power pop and synth-pop song was written the creation of Emotion album in 2015, but it wasn’t included in the album because it was too cinematic and theatrical. It was later considered the album follow up E.MO.TION: Side B, instead it made it on the soundtrack for the Canadian-French animation movie ‘Ballerina’. After Jepsen signed on for the film, she felt that the song was fit for the story. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jepsen talked about how the song became a part of the movie, she said: “That was actually a contender for E•MO•TION: Side B and, originally, the first album. It was almost too cinematic and theatrical. I was like, ‘If I had my way with it, this would be great for a musical or movie’ When Ballerina came along, I met with people as I was doing the voiceover and they were showing me a couple scenes. There was one in particular where they were like, ‘We’re looking for the right song for this, do you have anything?’ I was like, ‘Actually, this has been in my back pocket. I’ve been saving it for the B-sides, but if this works for you guys, I’d be stoked to share it.'”
