Songfacts®:

  • Allen Ritter and Frank Dukes join trusted Future associate Metro Boomin on production here. Their spacy beat is complimented by Future's boasts about his riches (the song title refers to the diamonds dancing on his chain as it swings around his neck) and Drake rapping about spending time with his girl.
  • The outro appears to find a hurt Drake addressing Nicki Minaj, who is caught in the middle of his beef with her boyfriend Meek Mill. The pair used to be close, and on cuts like Minaj's "Moment 4 Life" and his own "Miss Me", he joked about them getting married. Now he accuses his friend of, "doing me dirty" and being "ungrateful" as he hasn't heard from her for a long time.
