Songfacts®:

  • Over fragmented yelps and a bass-driven beat, Kanye West puts his trust in his Creator. Yeezy recognizes that when God breathed the breath of life into Adam, He made humans living souls. Because God is in him, he knows the Lord will resolve all the difficulties and obstacles he faces.

    Don't care 'bout the lawyer fees
    I don't care 'bout your loyalties
    God will solve it all for me
  • Vory joins Kanye on the first verse. The Louisville-based singer also contributed towards the Donda tracks "No Child Left Behind" and "Jonah."
  • West recorded the song during sessions for 2019's Jesus Is King. He originally planned to include it on that album, and its title could be seen on an early tracklist version.
  • West co-produced the track with the writing and producing duo Ojivolta, along with E*vax of the electronic rock band Ratatat, plus Aaron Butts and Brian Miller.
