In the premiere on Billboard, the actor/singer explains about the single: “It’s about me explaining to this woman in my life that I only have her on my mind.” He continued, “I wrote it, alongside Natt Dunn, because the track just gave us that energy. It felt as if that’s what was meant to go over that type of music. Everything from the cadence to the melody.”
In the visual, Smith brings his creative side out as takes his love life to a comic strip when he is first seen convincing his lady their is no else but her in life when he gets caught up at a party.

“This video was so great to shoot because it was fun, high energy the whole time. The directors Lex Lewter & Dylan Bergstrom really helped create a visual that makes you want to keep paying attention and I went for this creative because I wanted something out of the box, not just a regular type of video.”
