Charted: 52
  • songfacts ®
  • Drake's feature on Future's Dirty Sprite 2 cut "Where Ya At" left fans itching for more collaborations from the pair. Drizzy was keen on the idea as well and traveled down to Atlanta for six days to lay down a few tunes with Future. The project ended up being an entire mixtape.

    "When you get around Future, it's like a vortex," Drake explained on Beats Radio. "That guy can probably out work anybody right now. It's tough to see someone make four or five songs a night and not try to match it. We ended up making an entire tape. Which is a blessing of course."

    The title of the mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive, comes from the first line of Drake's verse on this song.
  • This featured in a the Beats commercial "You Blew It" in which we see Tracy Morgan hold up a mug labeled "World's Greatest Dad." He then declares that the gift giver blew it - all he wanted were some Beats by Dre!

    The ad was one of a series of Beats commercials shown over the 2015 Christmas period. They all ended with a snippet of this song.
