Songfacts®:

  • This ode to the high life finds Gucci Mane in sensual mode while Bruno Mars flexes on the chorus about drugs, alcohol, and his luxurious lifestyle.

    I drink 'til I'm drunk, smoke 'til I'm high
    Castle on the hill wake up in the sky
    You can't tell me I ain't fly


    The ladies love Bruno's riches and he knows it.
  • Kodak Black also contributes 16 bars. They were the first new rhymes heard from the rapper following his arrest and seven-month jail term for multiple charges.
  • This isn't the first time Gucci Mane and Bruno Mars have worked together. Guwop was previously featured on the remix to Bruno's 24K Magic single "That's What I Like ," which dropped in April 2018. The song also marks Gucci Mane's second collaboration with Kodak Black, following the latter's "Vibin in This Bih." Bruno Mars and Kodak Black had never worked together before.
  • Bruno Mars also supplied the song's trap beat along with DY Krazy and Tre Pounds, who are both members of the production team 808 Mafia.
  • Gucci Mane, Bruno Mars, and Kodak Black team up to form an '80s R&B group with old-school choreography in the Mars-directed visual.
