"Obsessed With You" is a hood love song where Central Cee opens up to the lady in his life. He knows she doesn't like his "trap boy" lifestyle and that she worries when he's out in the streets with other women. The rapper reassures her, letting her know she's the only one he's interested in now, as he's "obsessed" with her. Despite his street runner image, Central Cee still needs some "thug affection."
Central Cee based the song around vocal samples of PinkPantheress' tune "Just For Me
PinkPantheress released "Just For Me" four weeks before "Obsessed With You," resulting in both singles being in the UK charts simultaneously.
The song is one of the shortest Central Cee has released, clocking in at just 1 minute 48 seconds.
Central Cee wrote the track. Because of the sample, PinkPantheress and "Just For Me" co-writer Mura Musa get credited too.
Emmanuel "Nastylgia" Oparah produced the song. He also created the beats for Headie One's "Both
" and Jay1's "Mocking It
Central Cee found "Just For Me" on TikTok before PinkPantheress released it as a single. However, making the track with the sample took longer than the rapper is used to. "It didn't flow as quick as my other songs," he told Apple Music. "Usually if a song don't flow I will forget about it and move on, but I loved the original and knew how big the song would be so I kept at it for some days."
