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.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
