Following the song's release -- Swift's first new music since dropping Reputation back in November 2017 -- after months of speculation, Urie took to Instagram to express his excitement about being involved with the track.
"Wait. This really happened?! Like for real?!?!" Urie wrote alongside a pic of himself and Swift from the pink-hued video. "Well I can’t begin to describe how incredible it has been to work on this song and video. So I will simply say: Thank you @taylorswift for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful story. So much f**kin love and respect. #ME!"
"[It's] about embracing your individuality," she said. "With a pop song, we have the ability to get a melody stuck in people's heads. I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves."
