  • Lyrics
  • At 1:42, this soul-styled lullaby is the shortest song on Coloring Book. It features a single, repeated verse by the hip-hop recording artist D.R.A.M.
  • The track was laid down at Rick Rubin's Shangri La studio with Donnie Trumpet and Nate Fox of Chance the Rapper's Social Experiment group. D.R.A.M. recalled the story of the song to Billboard magazine:

    "Donnie Trumpet and Nate Fox came into the studio and Donnie was talking about he's into making children's music. I was like, 'Bruh, I always wanted to make children's music.' I was literally trying to make something that you could put on Barney, that you could put on Sesame Street -- it was strictly for the children. That was the first intention.

    And Chance heard it through Nate and Donnie -- you know how producers are, playing s--t. He called me mad times to use the record on the project as an interlude. After thinking about it, I was like, man, f--k it, whatever. It's just like, the first half of the record. Eventually, we'll release it in full."
