Got It Good

Album: Following My Intuition (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, Craig David is going to reward his girl for sticking with him through the rough times. Now that he's got some money, he wants to spend it on her:

    You deserve it girl
    Don't worry about the tag
    Go and throw it in the bag
    Cause I got it good
  • A line on this song updates dating etiquette to reference "swiping":

    There's no need for hesitation when you're swiping
    I wanna show appreciation so I buy it


    This refers to swiping a credit card so he can buy gifts for the lady.

    Craig David credits this to his songwriting collaborator Tre Jean-Marie. "I'd say, for instance, 'I'm tipsy', and he'd go, 'These days the word would be wavy,'" he smiled to Q magazine. "That makes the difference between young people genuinely relating to a song."
  • The song was produced by Kaytranada, and also appears on his album 99.9%. Kaytranada has also produced tracks for Chance the Rapper ("All Night") and Vic Mensa ("Wimme Nah").
  • Along with Craig David and Tre Jean-Marie, the other writers on this track are Jaime Alem, Louis Celestin and Lauren Faith.
