Songfacts®:

  • Here Gunna and Drake pay tribute to the irresistible sexual allure of women. It's a power that gets men "poppin' in places."
  • The song is an erotic extension of the DS4Ever track "Pushin P." The two rappers spit explicit rhymes about sex with their ladies, with both getting intimate with them in a Mercedes.
  • This marks the third collaboration between Gunna and Drake, following Lil Baby and Gunna's 2018 Drip Harder track, "Never Recover" and the Slime Language 2 cut "Solid" (with Young Thug).
  • When Gunna revealed the tracklist for DS4Ever on January 5, 2022, it contained a song titled "Pussy Power" featuring Drake. When the album dropped two days later, many fans were left bemused as the much anticipated collaboration was missing. Gunna eventually added it to the record a week later with the title of "P Power."

    Probably the reason for the delay was sample clearance issues. The original version of the track sampled Donna Summer's 1976 single, "Could It Be Magic." However, the final version of "P power" that appears on the album omits the sample.
  • Metro Boomin's sensory, cascading production features the sound of women having organisms. He may have inspiration from another Donna Summer track: her 1975 sensual single "Love To Love You Baby" featuring the Queen of Disco's orgasmic-sounding vocals.
