"We wrote the song, cut it, and then the next day I was listening back. There was this empty space after the chorus, and I [imagined] this part, this sample that Timbaland would use," he told the site. "I ordered this guitalele, which is like a baby guitar with nylon strings that sounds like a ukelele. I went over to my buddy and was like, “I’m just going to play this.” It ended up sounding so badass. It sounds like something you’d hear on an old Justin Timberlake record, right?"

I wanted something people could dance to at parties."
