Saturday's a Celebration

Album: Cadillactica (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Over a piano and drum laced soundscape provided by British producer Alex Da Kid (Imagine Dragons, Eminem), this song finds Big K.R.I.T. rapping about moving on from loss. The Mississippi rapper explained the song's meaning to Billboard magazine: "It's the idea of losing somebody, having to bury that person and ultimately having to let them go," he said. "I promised myself I'd do a song for my grandmother - I lost her in 2010 - on every album, and I have thus far."

    "This was me coming to a point where I'm healing myself with the idea of letting her go," K.R.I.T. continued. "I might not have this person in my life that would hold me down, but learning how to cope with things on my own. I think about all the things she told me and tell myself them over and over again until I'm good."
  • K.R.I.T. previously paid tribute to his late grandma Ms. Linnie, when he featured her singing hymns on his 2012 cut "Live From The Underground (Reprise)."
  • Jamie N Commons supplies the bluesy baritone vocals. The British singer is signed to Alex Da Kid's KIDinaKORNER label and first came to prominence with his song with X Ambassadors, "Jungle", which charted in the Hot 100 after featuring in advertisements for Beats by Dre during the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
