Songfacts®:

  • "Detox" is a hard-hitting trap number where an auto-tuned Lil Baby raps about his love life.

    I ain't tryna see her, I'ma detox for the next few days
    She like me, 'cause I'm G, buy her Givenchy


    Baby is taking a break from the romance because although the sex is good, she's toxic and he wants to cleanse himself.

    The rapper also talks about his work ethic, business savvy, and fruits of his success.
  • Nick Papz created the choir-sampling minimalist beat, helped by Cubeatz, Eza, KJ, and London Jae.

    Massachusetts beatmaker Nick Papz is a frequent Meek Mill collaborator and was the first producer officially signed to the Philly rapper's Dreamchasers record label. The choir sampling is one of his trademarks.
  • Lil Baby released the single on September 2, 2022 in conjunction with the final performance of his and Chris Brown's North American One Of Them Ones tour.
  • Baby co-directed the video alongside Ivan Berrios. We see the rapper asserting his authority as he spars in a boxing ring, manages an office space, and oversees a yoga class.
