The song is characterized by its upbeat and rhythmic feel, offering a refreshing departure from Styles’ boy band roots. He delivers the lyrics with charisma and a sense of playfulness, hinting at the emotional connection he has with the song.

Townes was at first unaware of the song, and Harry’s lines in the song reference how she is all he thinks about, but can’t tell her. After learning that she was the inspiration behind the song, Townes was reportedly beside herself with joy and surprise. She found the song to be fairly accurate of her personality, calling it “lovely” and “adorable.” Still, she felt overwhelmed by the amount of attention she received following the release of the song, and simply wanted it all to blow over. Her friend who reported on the story noted that Townes didn’t want to go around bragging about this, while millions of other girls likely would. Notably, many students from UCLA tweeted that they are disappointed that the song isn’t about them, or that they aren’t friends with this mysterious girl.
