Songfacts®:

  • 2 Chainz recruited Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhene Aiko to take it in turns to croon the hook of this smooth, laid back track. Each singer adds their own words to their version of the chorus.
  • Ty Dolla $ign and Trey Songz's smooth renditions of the hook act as sultry introduction to 2 Chainz's swanky verse in which he brags about the vibes that he is giving out. (Jhené Aiko's chorus follows the Atlanta rapper's rhymes).

    Got a vibe, make a yellow chick turn her neck (alright)
    Got a vibe, make a cougar wanna spend a check (check)
    Got a vibe, make an Asian want hibachi (hibachi)
    Got a vibe, make Italian want Versace (Versace)


    A vibe is a distinctive emotional atmosphere that is sensed intuitively. 2 Chainz claims to have such a vibe about him, that it makes people do the things they like to do.
  • The beat was supplied by MurdaBeatz. The Ontario, Canada producer has also worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj ("No Frauds"), Drake ("Portland") and French Montana ("No Shopping").
