by Kodak Black (featuring Travis Scott)

Album: Dying To Live (2018)
Charted: 7 2

Songfacts®:

  • Kodak Black links up with Offset and Travis Scott on this track in which they boast about their luxurious lifestyles.

    Took an island flood the mansion
    Dropped the roof, more expansion
    Drive a coupe you can stand in


    The song is full of references to the rappers' decadence and their taste for the finer things in life.
  • The island-themed steel drum instrumentation is courtesy of Chicago native D.A. Doman (Chris Brown's "Privacy," Tyga's "Taste"). Offset also featured on the latter track.
  • The song title does not appear in the lyrics. Some media outlets have speculated it's a poke at 6ix9ine, who has dropped a number of tracks with similar spellings, such as "Keke," "Fefe," and "Bebe."
  • When the song debuted at #2 on the Hot 100, it became the highest charting song ever on the tally that begins with the letter "Z". The record had previously been held by Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans' cover of "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" which peaked at #8 in 1963.
