Songfacts®:

  • "All Girls Are the Same" is a rare vulnerable hip-hop track. Rather than bragging about having a plethora of women at his beck and call, as most rappers are prone to do, Juice WLRD outlines his heartbreak following repeated relationship failures. The lovesick rapper bares his soul as he spits rhymes about his failure to find a girl that wants a true loving relationship

    I just want real love, guess it's been a minute
    Pissed off from the way that I don't fit in, I don't fit in
    Tell me what's the secret to love, I don't get it
    Feel like I be runnin' a race I'm not winnin'
    Ran into the devil today and she grinnin'


    Juice has been hurt and he sees all future relationships through the lens of his failed ones.
  • The song wasn't inspired by any particular girl, instead it's a sort of compilation of all the negatives Juice has experienced in relationships. He told POWER 92, Chicago:

    "I mean. you know, I would have had to have been through a lot to even come to the conclusion to make a statement that: 'all girls are the same.' Obviously all girls aren't the same, but if you're going through a repetitive heartbreak and stuff you're gonna think that. So that's pretty much how that came."
  • The instrumentation was supplied by frequent collaborator Nick Mira. "I'd say the number one important thing to me when I'm making a beat is always my melody," he told Genius regarding this song's production. "If I don't have my melody right or the actual musical components of the beat, then I just can't focus from there on out."

    "Always after my melodies, I go straight to my drums," he added. "The most bounce was the hi-hats. So I turned the release down. Chopped it so it sounds like a shaker. Like a 'chka chka.' And then after I had all that, the main thing that tied it all together… It's just a simple, really simple 808 pattern."
  • Juice wrote the song when he was feeling hurt and upset by particular relationship failures. As a result, he consciously made a choice to put out a biased statement based on his issues. Speaking on Power 106 Los Angeles, the Chicago rapper acknowledged the lyrics don't reflects his true feelings. "That's how I felt at a certain point in time, and that's clearly wrong, because everybody's different," he stated.
