Charted: 62 23

Songfacts®:

  • Quavo, Offset and Takeoff of Migos are all featured on this bouncy, upbeat track. Sonically, it combines Mustard's West Coast vibe with the Atlanta trio's' southern rap sound. "It sounds like a party," Mustard told Beats 1's Zane Lowe of the collab. "And I'm not saying like a down-south party or a trap party. It's like Migos coming to LA and having a house party here."
  • The song comprises a Quavo hook and verses from all three Migos members, featuring their common braggadocio themes of wealth and women. It was the first time that Mustard had collaborated with the trio. He admitted that it wasn't easy to get all three of them in the studio, though.

    "I was calling their phones everyday," the producer recalled. "But at this point in my life it's not about the ego. I don't care how many times I have to call, because nobody's going to look at you as the guy who called a million times if you deliver a hit."
