"Pretty Please" was written by Dua Lipa, Julia Michaels, Caroline Ailin and Ian Kirkpatrick. The song was recorded at Zenseven Studios in Los Angeles while the vocals were recorded at TaP Studio in London. Josh Gudwin mixed the song at Henson Studios in Hollywood and Chris Gehringer mastered it at Sterling Sound in Edgewater, New Jersey. The songwriting team had written a song together before and "Pretty Please" came about after they decided to see what they would get out of writing another song. The group played a bunch of music in the session before Kirkpatrick began working on the production with the bassline. They started writing the lyrics with the title of "Pretty Please" and built a story based on that. Michaels had the idea to slow down the song before the chorus. Kirkpatrick used a tempo track to match the tempo in which Lipa sang at. Kirkpatrick ended up singing the backing vocal "pretty" that is layered in the mix, while Michaels sang backing vocal harmonies.
