  • Lyrics
  • This song features some freaky vocals from Alsina's fellow R&B singer Chris Brown. The pair are no strangers to working together: Breezy appeared on the remix to "I Luv This S--t" and they also collaborated on DJ Khaled's single "Hold You Down" along with Jeremih and Future.
  • Alsina commented to Rap-Up.com: "It's a very, very fun record. Like I said, I been around the world and experienced a lot of whatever—a lot of girls, a lot of situations, so to sum it up, that's the song."
  • The song interpolates Puff Daddy’s 1997 hit-single by the same name, which itself drew inspiration from Lisa Stansfield's 1990 hit "All Around The World."
