On May 13, 2016, Grande announced on her Instagram account that a new song from her album Dangerous Woman would be premiered exclusively on Apple Music every day until the release of the album.[3] The following day, Grande posted a short preview of "Side to Side" via Instagram, then premiered the song on Apple Music the same day.[4] On August 30, 2016, the track was sent to US urban contemporary radio and became Dangerous Woman's third single.[1]

Digital Spy described the song as reggae-pop.[5] Lyrically, "Side to Side" talks about soreness after sex.[6] In an interview to MTV News reporter Gaby Wilson, Grande explained "that whole song is about riding leading to soreness".[7]

"Side to Side" is written in the key of F♯ minor with a common time tempo of 159 beats per minute. Grande's vocals span two octaves, from the low note of F♯3 to the mixed note of F♯5.[8]
