  • "Major Distribution" finds Drake back to his bragging ways as he flexes about his deal with Universal Music Group.

    Five-hundred million, just for Aubrey
    Hmm, hmm, yeah, major distribution how I pop it


    Although no official figure has been revealed for Drake's 2022 Universal contract, it was reported to be as high as $400 million. Maybe, in his excitement, Drizzy added an extra $100 million.
  • Drake's Toronto mansion reportedly measures 50,000 square feet. Dubbed The Embassy, its amenities include an NBA-regulation-size indoor basketball court. Here he references the 1990 Christmas comedy Home Alone, where a boy, played by Macaulay Culkin, gets left on his own at home.

    Hmm, hmm, in this mansion, I'm Macaulay Culkin

    Drake's mansion is so super-sized that he feels like a child alone in a big house.
  • 21 Savage joins in the bragging as he compares his music sales to those of Harry Styles.

    Major distribution, labels callin', Harry Styles numbers, it's a robbery

    Styles' 2022 album Harry's House topped the charts worldwide and broke numerous records.
  • SkipOnDaBeat supplied the beat. The producer, birth name Edgar Ferrera, has worked with artists such as Kodak Black ("Skrt"), G-Eazy ("1942") and a Boogie Wit Da Hoodie (Come Closer").
  • SkipOnDaBeat samples the piano from Elijah Fox's 2020 track "East Village" for the intro. Fox also receives a credit for additional vocals on the track.
