Commenting on the same, Thomson says “This song was composed by me in early 2014, during a Mumbai local train journey I was on, when a thought just crossed my mind and I started humming a melody (Now the main hook/chorus!) which really got stuck in my mind as the tune is super catchy. I wrote the chorus lyrics and over a few days I sat at my desk at home and ideated a fun story around the chorus & wrote this song narrating a guy’s positive breakup story; wherein his girlfriend cheats on him and when he finds out, he is happy to dump her as he realizes that he deserves someone way better and walks out of this dishonest relationship as a winner.”
“After I finished composing the entire lyric of the song, I performed the song at many of my Indie Live concerts across India and gained lot of great feedback about the song, hence I decided to make it a Record/Single and began creation of the track with few close musician friends , who are also the best from the Indian music industry, along with Candy D’Souza, my producer who visioned the song with me till its final stage, after several alterations to the structure and composition, to make it as beautiful as it finally sounds now!,” adds Thomson.
