Cabello admitted in the new interview that she and her Fifth Harmony bandmates new that track was “gonna be a big one” the first time it was played to them last year, and also revealed that the Fifth Harmony ladies “just fell in love” with the song.
“We were just obsessed with it because it’s laid-back and chill and has a kind of urban pocket to it,” Camila told the site of Fifth Harmony’s reaction following following the February 26 release. “I think that’s why we loved it so much, because it branched out in different ways than everything else [Fifth Harmony had] recorded and when you’re making an album, you always want to find different pieces of the puzzle, not just one of the same.”
The Fifth Harmony beauty also admitted to SPIN that she and her Fifth Harmony bandmates were pretty excited to team up with rapper Ty Dolla $ign for the hot new song, where Cabello also revealed that the rap is actually her “favorite part of the song.”
“Ty added such an amazing flair to it… the way that he plays with the melody and his dissonant notes,” she told SPIN of Fifth Harmony’s collaboration with the star. “He made his own hooky part out of the bridge.”
