  • "Focus" is a sultry track in which Bazzi brushes off the haters, focusing instead on good vibes and positivity. He urges a love interest not to trip on his enemies as "they envy me and my energy."
  • Bazzi called up 21 Savage to help. The Atlanta rapper delivers an explosive verse in which he gives a "middle finger to the other side."
  • Bazzi co-produced the track along with Kevin White of the duo Rice N' Peas. Their thumping beat incorporates some backing choir vocals, giving the track a dose of menace. Bazzi also collaborated with White on his previous single, "Paradise."
