Background and composition[]

"Devontée brought this beat that he made with Powers to one of my jam sessions. My bass player, Nick, laid a bass line down and then the next day I structured it and added a chorus and asked Devontée to come back over and added his rap. It’s so surreal to me that this little song is being shared with people now!”

—Mendler, explaining how the track came together in an email to The Fader.[3]

The production and melody of "Temperamental Love" has been compared to Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out".[4] Devontée's verses were also said to have an "old school hip hop nostalgia" to them.[5] According to Devontée, "Temperamental Love" is about the highs, lows, hot, and cold. It's the balance of life. Some days the high temperature is -3 and sometimes the high is 100 and that is the same thing as relationships to ensure it's well rounded.[6] The song generally portrays the ups and downs of long-distance relationships, with temperature metaphors mixed in.[7]
