What was the inspiration behind "ILYSB"?

March 13, 2014, I was driving home to Hollywood from Santa Monica with a girl in my passenger seat who I really liked. She took a call from her sister really quick and ended the conversation with “I love you so bad.” I thought that was the most clever thing I had ever heard. I turned to her and said, “I’m gonna write a song called ‘I love you so bad.’” That girl and I kept hanging for a while, and we would say “I love you so bad” to each other and shorten it in text to “ILYSB.” about a month and a half after hearing her say that for the first time, I wrote all the lyrics for that song in an afternoon in my bedroom.
