  • Production credits on this track go to Mike Will Made It ( Future, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Miley Cyrus). When it came create a beat for Jay-Z, the young producer was told to take it easy. "[Jay] was like, 'Man, let's do something so effortless,' and that just stuck with me when he said 'effortless,' " Mile Will told MTV News. "When I went up there, I just cooked up a beat real fast and he just went in on it."
  • The track runs for a mere 55 seconds. When asked by a fan on Twitter why the cut was so short, Jay replied: "This is how I feel about vacation."
