Songfacts®:

  • Ella Mai's boyfriend has hooked up with another girl in the club, but her rival is nothing compared to her.

    I be up on it, you know she can't keep up
    You know you want this, so why you gon' keep her
    Don't get the picture, I'll write it out
    Losin' a real one that held you down


    Mai knows that her boyfriend will regret ruining their relationship because of this other girl.
  • Ty Dolla $ign's guest verse finds him begging Ella not to leave and to give him another chance. Describing Ty's contribution to her song the songstress told ABC Radio.

    "It took him probably, like, ten minutes. [Ty and DJ Mustard] didn't write anything down and just vibed and kind of came up with his verse there. And that was how it came about."
