Songfacts®:

  • This braggadocio track finds Chris Brown boasting to a girl about his wealth and sexual prowess. He flaunts his designer clothing and diamonds in an attempt to win her over.
  • Brown is joined on the track by Gunna, who also boasts about his riches and jewelry. He promises a girl "fifty bands inside your room, designer garments for the week." The song is the first collaboration between the pair.
  • R&B singer Tank contributes uncredited vocals to the refrain and pre-chorus.
  • Atlanta producer Buddah Bless came up with the beat. His other credits include 2 Chainz' "Big Amount" and Migos' "Supastars." It was one of around 300 beats that Buddah Bless made using a keyboard he had just bought, along with NBA YoungBoy's "Make No Sense" and the Jackboys' "Out West."
