In an interview with Genius, Billie mentioned that she wrote the song with her brother about a girl who copies everything that she does. She said, "I write with my brother mostly. That song, we were just in his room, and I was like, "Yo! There's this fucking girl and she keeps doing everything that I do. And I want to write about it." Because it was in my mind. A lot."
