Songfacts®:

  • The melodic "Find My Way" is DaBaby's first solo music since releasing his sophomore album, Kirk. It's a stylistic change for the North Carolina MC as he sings on the chorus while still rapping on the song's two verses.
  • Lyrically, the song finds an explicitly vulnerable DaBaby talking about falling for a woman who broke his heart. This, coupled with losing loved ones and people treating him "like the villain," have made him angry. The rapper eases his rage with a casual affair.
  • "Find My Way" features production by DaBaby's frequent collaborator DJ K.i.D. The beat incorporates a continuous guitar loop that's also used on Marshmello & Anne-Marie's 2018 hit song "Friends." It came from a purchasable sample pack on Splice made by Prime Loops, which Marshmello acquired royalty-free. This meant DJ K.i.D could also use the same sample without fear of infringement.
  • The 10-minute video was directed by DaBaby's go-to directors, Reel Goats. In the clip, the North Carolina MC goes on a crime-filled joyride with social media influencer B. Simone. The visual bears similarities to the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
