According to Time, it was Page who suggested Cyrus to sing on the Perry-penned track. "She has a really raw, unique, awesome, beautiful voice, and Miley's doing a lot of incredible things for the LGBTQ community," Page told the publication. "I just thought it was going to be a perfect fit. She and Linda made something really special. I kept listening to it after I heard it."

For Cyrus, it gave her an opportunity to combine her passion for LGBT equality with her music. She told Time, "People like to learn through entertainment. It's an interactive way to get people to hear your message by putting it in a song they like to listen to, or a film they want to see."
