  • Lyrics
  • For Hall Of Fame, Big Sean wanted to create a "well-rounded album," with nods to genres like R&B and EDM. He joked at the album's listening party that this slow-building, Ellie Goulding-featuring song, about a girl that's got the rapper on a high, incorporates "electronic mixed with some Blackstreet s--t."

    Sean previously sampled Goulding's track "Your Song" for "My Closet," a cut on his mixtape Finally Famous Vol. 3.
  • Los Angeles-based producer Flinch co-wrote this song, repurposing his track of the same name. Flinch is best known for his contribution to "Way Too Far" a track from Korn's The Path of Totality album.
