Over an elastic bassline and syncopated handclaps, Dua Lipa sings of riding into outer space with her lover. <i>If you wanna run away with me, I know a galaxy And I can take you for a ride</i> Dua Lipa's songs are often upbeat musically, but with downbeat lyrics about romantic difficulties ("<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/dua-lipa/dont-start-now">Don't Start Now</a>," "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/dua-lipa/break-my-heart">Break My Heart</a>"). However, "Levitating" is an all-round euphoric jam. "It's about having fun and meeting someone and falling in love and thinking, 'You've probably met me at the perfect time, let's just go for it," Dua Lipa explained to Apple Music. "It's the feeling when love makes you feel like you're levitating. It's otherworldly."
Dua Lipa wrote the song with Katy Perry and Camila Cabello collaborator Sarah Hudson, and with Clarence Coffee Jr. of The Monsters and The Strangerz production and songwriting team. The same people also penned her "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/dua-lipa/physical">Physical</a>" single along with Jason Evigan.
