Clocking in at approximately three-and-a-half minutes, the track is the third collab the Los Angeles rapper has been a part of this 2021 following “Best Friend” with Saweetie, its remix with Stefflon Don and another remix of Ariana Grande’s “34+35” with Megan Thee Stallion. “…I wanted to make a song about kissing. I just thought it would be cute. That doesn’t happen too often, but just a song that’s solely about kissing,” Doja Cat told Zane Lowe on Apple Music. “So I started there and then [SZA] took it to like a deeper level, which is what I needed, you know what I mean? Because then it starts to become like a children’s jingle and she just made it feel relatable and adult and sexy and funny and awesome.”
Doja Cat further stated that tagging TDE artist for the song “just felt right,” revealing that they met at an American Apparel a few years ago. ”But I met her there and then we were just like, “Hi.” “Hi.” And then I just walked away, whatever,” she said, continuing, “But then I then made the song and I made it in the spirit of her. I just thought of her. And it just felt right. This beat felt right. I love hearing her on uptempo stuff. She did the Maroon 5 song that I was obsessed with. And then, yeah, it was just like, “Why is this not a conversation? We’re putting her on there, right now. We’re doing it.” And she killed it.”
