Lyrically, the song sets up the album. Bellinger explained to Artist Direct
: "The mixtape Choose Up Season
was great. It was about the single life. It told the story of how it goes when you meet someone, you're just trying to have fun, and that lifestyle. 'Focused On You' is the transition. There's a whole lot of chicks everywhere, and I'm just focused on this one girl. That ties into the story for the album Cuffing Season
. Everything's making sense. I'm putting together a little journey."
