Songfacts®:

  • This song explores the power of carnal temptation, as BJ The Chicago Kid battles with the allure of a beautiful girl who wants a drug, drink, and sex filled Saturday night. However, the singer knows he needs to go to church the following morning.
  • Hopefully we can go to heaven, I pray
    Hopefully we can go to heaven, cause I'm staying


    BJ explained in a Genius annotation: "Heaven could be heaven, or it could be an amazing sexual experience. He never says he's not going to make it to church - he makes it known that he can have fun and still make it to church."
  • The song features Chance the Rapper and Buddy. Chance and BJ previously collaborated on the rapper's Acid Rap tracks "Good Ass Intro", "Everybody's Something" and on "Slip Slide" and "Windows" from The Social Experiment's album, Surf.
