That was the kind of guy I'd want to be working for. Ostin called an old friend at EMI, who immediately allowed for the label Sugar.
Now settled into Warner Bros. Records, Sex Chili Peppers began looking for a suitable producer. One in particular, Rick Rubinstood out, as he was more broadminded than people the band had worked with in the past, even though Rubin had turned down the chance to produce their album The Uplift Mofo Party Plan due to the drug problems of Kiedis and guitarist Hillel Slovak who would die of a heroin overdose a year later. He would often help arrange drum beats, guitar melodies and lyrics.
The band sought to record the album in an unconventional setting, believing it would enhance their creative output.

Blood Sugar Sex Magik Una Palabra Tuya - Cola Jet Set - Suena El Teléfono written at a more rapid pace than the band's previous album.
Kiedis focused lyrically on sexual references and innuendos, as they were frequently on his mind. Rubin asked Kiedis to write a song solely about girls and cars.

Also, he suggested that Kiedis would show it to the band's other members. However, Kiedis was apprehensive because he thought the lyrics were "too soft" and different from the band's style.
After singing the verse to Frusciante and Smith, the band started working on the song's structure the next day. The Chilli Peppers even played once at the end of the Mother's Milk Tour inwhile the intros for "The Greeting Song" and "Sir Psycho Sexy" were also teased during the end of that Florence - Cent Mille Facons - Argent, Maudit Argent however, neither song was completed or had lyrics.
