Songfacts®:

  • "Spin Bout U" finds 21 Savage and Drake outlining their courting techniques. Naturally, the superstar MCs' ways of romancing girls differ from the common man's.
  • 21 takes the first verse where he boasts of letting his love interest use his luxury American Express black card. And if that's not enough, he'll give her the numbers for unlocking his strongbox.

    American Express, you can have it all
    Code to the safe, you can have it all


    In his verse, Drake flexes about using his influence to open doors for his model paramour.

    Girl, one call, I'll get you in Vogue
    One call, you in runway shows
    One call, I'm sittin' front row
  • The title comes from 21 Savage's final line, where he encourages his lady to warn off other suitors.

    If you out in public and he want your number, just tell him, "My ni--a'll spin you"
  • Drake's go-to musical partner Noah "40" Shebib created the beat with BanBwoi, and FortyOneSix. Their production samples the chorus of B.G.O.T.I. (feat Oobie)'s 1995 R&B cut, "Give Me Your Lov-N."
