Background[edit]

The tempo was slowed down in this song, compared to The Chainsmokers' previous songs.[9][10] It is sung by Andrew Taggart.[11] YourEDM described the song as a mellow track that "begins with ballad and slightly drops into EDM at the climax, as the bass kicks in".[12] MTV described it as a "heavyhearted breakup song".[13]
