Songfacts®:

  • Here, Drake throws shade on a hypocritical Christian girl. He tells the churchgoing woman her hard drinking and promiscuous lifestyle does not tie up with biblical teaching.
  • Lil Durk raps the second verse, during which he shouts out his girlfriend India Royale's cosmetic brand. Drake previously collaborated with the Chicago rapper on his "Laugh Now Cry Later" single.
  • Giveon croons the third verse, warning a "good girl" she shouldn't trust him so much because he's been hiding his flaws from her. He warns his love interest she may not want him when she sees what he's really like.
  • Drake's long-term collaborator Noah "40" Shebib co-produced the track with:

    Leon Thomas III of the music production duo The Rascals. He also co-produced the Certified Lover Boy tracks "Love All" and "Pipe Down."

    Canadian producer Eliel Afari-Brown, better known as Eli Brown. He is part of Frank Dukes's Kingsway Music Library production collective.

    Hip-hop producer Austin Powerz, who also mixed the Drake and Rick Ross track "Lemon Pepper Freestyle."
