Songfacts®:

  • Dave co-produced the track with frequent collaborator 169. The pair came up with a hard-hitting instrumental laced with crisp kicks and claps.
  • The video, which sees the two rappers enjoying the luxurious side of life, was co-directed by Dave and Nathan James Tettey. The latter also shot Santan's "Question Time" and "No Words" clips.
