Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Future hooking up with The Weeknd. Both artists promote a drugged out, sexual, and lavish lifestyle, so it's no surprise that when they get together the hedonistic pair rep the low life. In this instance they talk about doing molly and Xanax with young girls, turning a 5-star hotel into a trap house, and cheating with another man's wife without remorse.
  • The Weeknd originally dropped this in December 2015 as a Christmas gift for their fans.
  • Future performed the song with The Weeknd on the March 5, 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live, marking his first-ever appearance on the late-night program. He also joined host Jonah Hill during the show's opening monologue. The pair rapped "Jumpman" with Hill taking Drake's part. "No, you can't say any of the 'N'-words," Future warned the actor.
