Charted: 58 38

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Juice WLRD details his adoration for a girl, showing a different side of the rapper, whom we typically hear cursing matters of the heart.
  • Juice tells the girl that when he reaches out to her he's not looking for any destructive type of love (a more familiar topic in his music) but instead he wants something much more intimate.

    Do you hear me calling?
    Me no want no drama
    Not a fighter, a lover


    He wants them to fall in love rather than to fall in "fight."

    Later, Juice mentions a popular type white wine as a metaphor for his love for the girl.

    Wine glass full of your emotions
    Oh, Pinot Grigio, sippin', beautiful, heaven-soul woman
  • The production by Purps On the Beat has a hint of Caribbean vibes. It is the first released Juice cut that the beatmaker has worked on.
