Songfacts®:

  • This dancehall-tinged track is about being taken advantage of by someone you love. Bryson Tiller worries that his girl is only with him for the money.

    I think she love me, 'cause I got the check on me
    Wan' spend the day and flex on me
    Put a curse and hex on me
    Scratch out my name, put the X on me


    By the chorus, Tiller is at his wit's end as he realizes that she's running him dry.
  • The song was co-produced by Allen Ritter and Boi-1da, who are both frequent Drake collaborators. The latter also worked with Tiller on the True to Self track "Money Problems / Benz Truck."
