The mid-tempo tune finds the people singing about how exactly they can’t get close enough to your girl they love and exactly how they feel like kings when they are with her. The group’s Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne co-wrote the nostalgic-sounding tune with frequent collaborator Jamie Scott and 2 newcomers, Daniel Bryer and Mike Needle.

Tomlinson tweeted out a link for the tune, calling it “another banger” and suggested it was Payne’s favorite around the record. Rather than reply, his bandmate posted who’s was “one of [his] favorites.”
The song’s release follows a string of latest Made in the A.M. tracks, for example the ballad “Love You Goodbye,” sing-along-ready “End of the Day” and folky “History.” They also released a song regarding bad-boy personas, “Perfect.”
In a newly released interview with frequent One Direction collaborator Julian Bunetta, Rolling Stone suggested that Payne and Tomlinson had evolved into a formidable songwriting pair. “They’ve written several classics, those boys,” he replied. “The process is interesting because there’s a number of people in the room. … Everyone is very headstrong and extremely, very talented, making it a fight, a lot with the times. Sometimes it takes days before all of us agree on something. It’s a good fight!”
