The song was first teased on her Instagram on October 4, 2018. Del Rey later deleted the snippet, but it has since been unarchived. This version was originally a piano ballad. On October 27, 2018, Del Rey held a livestream during which Jack Antonoff could be heard working on another instrumental of the song. The production was changed for the album to an up-tempo track.
Del Rey premiered the song with a live performance in 2018, in which she revealed it was the last song she recorded for the album. "Fuck It I Love You" was later revealed to actually be the last song recorded for the album after she went back and added more songs to it.

- From the live version, Del Rey sings about Jim in several other songs, including "Ultraviolence" and "Hundred Dollar Bill".
- New York is also mentioned in many of Del Rey's songs, some of which are "Old Money", "Ultraviolence" and "Hit & Run".
