  • In this song, Drake references a female he deeply trusts, and as result has made her his go-to-girl. The song was released following "Charged Up" and "Hotline Bling" as part of the weekly mix for his Beats 1 Radio show OVO Sound.
  • The expression right hand man or woman refers to an invaluable or chief assistant, who provides help in daily business or personal tasks. It comes from the fact that a person's "right hand" is their most trusted and loyal helper.
  • Some right hand fun facts:

    Around 90% of the world's population is right-handed, a percentage that has remained steady for the last 30,000 years.

    There were more left-handed people with IQs over 140 than right-handed people. Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Benjamin Franklin were all lefties.

    Studies have shown that right-handed people tend to scratch with the left hand and left-handed people with the right.

    Female cats tend to be right-pawed; tom cats tend to be left-pawed.
