Poppy can be heard in the background exclaiming: "Charlotte, why are you doing this? They told me I couldn't release it today!". The release date was then pushed back to February 14th, 2017.
This song is an introduction to Poppy and what it is like in her world. The lyrics tell the listener how to be like her and how everyone is happy watching her YouTube videos on the internet.
