To commemorate the song, the duo had an Instagram live conversation on July 11, 2020. A total of 20,000 people joined the chat. Ross Lynch revealed during the live discussion that the song was written by the duo before they left Vancouver.
Rocky Lynch said, “That is actually…extremely insane.”
During the live session, American actor/singer Riker Anthony Lynch—the duo’s elder brother—announced that the song’s video would be recorded on July 13, 2020.
