The song starts with a restrained and simple beat, leading slowly into hi hat accompaniment and bed squeaks. Gallant’s vocals can be heard echoing around the space as the track ascends into a full-fledged Jersey beat, featuring strong stabs of synth and expert cymbal placement. The sensual breakdown maintains the energy from the drop, despite most of the elements being stripped away. The vocals remain forward and central after a long swell brings the listener back into the fray. The chorus is repeated once more, segmented and cut into a Lido-esque rhythm as it continues.
