Explaining how the record came about, Simarjeet Saini of Almost Famous said: “The collaboration was very organic. We randomly got in touch with Soulja Boy’s manager and started conversing for over six months. Thereafter we made a couple of options for Soulja and he instantly thought it was dope and we finished the track in 18 minutes. In fact, we produced the track on our laptop sitting out of a bedroom apartment in Mumbai last February.”
