  • Lyrics
  • Chris Brown is crooning here about an ex who has changed since their relationship ended; she is acting like a player and ignoring his phone calls. Breezy is sick and tired of her attitude and he warns his former girlfriend that the "grass ain't greener on the other side."
  • Brown wrote the song with singer-songwriter Christopher "Prince Chrishan" Dotson, whose best known for co-writing Little Mix's hit single "Wings" and Zendeya's collaboration with Breezy, "Something New."
  • The song was helmed by Canadian composer and producer Nikhil "Kromatik" Seetharam, who contributed production on Nicki Minaj's US Top 20 single "Moment 4 Life."
  • The grass is always greener is an English idiom with the meaning of other people's lives or situations always seem better than your own. Ludacris cut a track titled "Grass Is Always Greener" for his 2015 Ludaversal album.
