Background[edit]

The song was previously leaked by fans on SoundCloud, YouTube and Reddit as a WAV file. It featured the vocals of the song's co-writer, Skyler Stonestreet, and was previously dubbed "Living High".[5][1] Marshmello said via his Facebook page that the track's release was actually brought forward due to the track leaking online. He stated: "When you leak an artists unreleased music you mess up all plans for that song. It's really not cool and is the reason why we decided to change things up."[9]

Composition[edit]

It features a 'cacophony of vocaloids' and big room synths alongside Cyrus' vocals.[9]
