The song is catchy and sounds eerily similar to much of his previous works. Ding goes for simple and artistic with his lyrics.
The song was inspired by Ding Dong achieving his blue tick on Instagram last October. A blue tick is a verification badge given by Instagram which confirms that the account holder is the authentic likeness of a celebrity or brand. At the time of receiving his blue tick, Ding Dong had 945,000 followers. The deejay has since grown his following to just over 1 million accounts.
