The collaboration with Dev started after Saade saw the video of her single Bass Down Low. Dev heard an early demo of Hotter Than Fire and said immediately yes after they asked her if she wanted to join the song. About the song and the collaboration with Dev, Saade said: "It's a song that shows quite clearly where I am going. I love electro-pop and I feel like I'm in the middle of the development to begin to find what I want to do. When Dev wanted to sing on the song it became the icing on the cake. Her 'rap song' style was so perfect for the song. She made it sexy."
