Songfacts®:

  • Here, Bryson Tiller is complaining that his girl is spending too much time with her friends rather than him and wasting her money at strip clubs and on drugs. Tiller claims that he's "the only drug you need to get you through it."
  • The track is built around a vocal sample of Travis Scott's 2014 song "Backyard," which originally appeared on his mixtape Days Before Rodeo. The sample is "blow that dope, don't," which Scott raps in the first verse of his cut.
