  • Lyrics
  • Over a slowed-down sample of OutKast's "Ms. Jackson," SZA croons about fighting against the world with her lover.

    It's just us against the world
    In this life of sin
    Ain't nobody gonna take us out
    It's always us, never them


    SZA feels her lover is the only person who has her back.
  • Twice in this empowering anthem, SZA references Jay-Z's "99 Problems":

    99 problems, but you ain't one

    Got 99 problems, what's one more?
  • This was SZA's first collaboration with DJ Khaled.
  • The song's music video was directed by Joseph Kahn. Set in ancient times, it sees SZA and Khaled emerging victorious through gladiator-style fight scenes.
