The song was written by Benassi, Brown, Daniel Daley, Allessandro Benassi and Stephen Kozmeniuk. Brown and Benassi had worked together for the first time on the song "Beautiful People" in 2010, and subsequently Benassi had produced another track for Brown, "Don't Wake Me Up", in 2012. After these collaborations Brown said in an interview for Billboard: "Benny and I have a history of making special music for the fans worldwide, and "Paradise" is another collaboration that I believe the fans will love and embrace".
In August 2015 Benassi has premiered a demo called "Paradise" on his SoundCloud page and removed it later. In March 2016 Brown had posted on his Instagram profile photos showing him and Benassi on the set for the video. After that Benassi has released the song on 31 March 2016.
