You see the list of names that are on the Hot 100, Drake, Cardi B, all these massive artists -- and then Dan + Shay. It's like, 'Did somebody make a mistake?' It's an honor."
And in case you were wondering -- yes, the duo does drink a lot of tequila. They're co-writer Jordan Reynolds pointed it out and insisted they write a song.
He's like, 'Dude, you guys drink a lot of tequila. We gotta write that song.' It's kind of what inspired us to write that tune."
