Songfacts®:

  • This mid-tempo banger finds Bryson Tiller predicting the end of a relationship. "Somethin' tell me we ain't gon' last baby," he sings on the hook. Tiller co-wrote the song with its producer T-Minus.
  • Asked about the song's lyrical content on Ebro In The Morning, Tiller replied:

    "One day somebody that I loved, I was trying to go upstairs to talk to them, and they were being kinda cold to me. And I was like 'Damn, what's the issue? Is it cause I'm on, on the road? Cause I'm in music videos with all these girls? Blah, blah, blah.'"
