The track was written with the help of American Idol viewers throughout Season 11 of the show. The creation of the song was promoted through Coca-Colas Perfect Harmony program where, throughout the season, American Idol viewers were invited to contribute parts of the lyrics to a tune offered online, making the song a true collaborative effort by a big number of people. After four submission and voting phases and thousands of lyric submissions, contributions were edited and the eventual final version performed by Derülo and tipped as part of his healing process after he suffered an accident that left him in a neck brace for many months. In an interview with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on the latters radio show, Derülo described the writing process as follows: The fans got to help me write the song. I started writing the song, but I left a bunch of lines blank and the fans have been helping me fill in the lines. There were lots of great, great lines. It made the process a little difficult. Thankfully, I had a lot of help to whittle it down to a number that I could actually look at. There were tons and tons of great stuff, but we got it down and I believe we came up with the best product!
