Lil Baby released "On Me" on December 4, 2020 in honor of his 26th birthday along with "Errbody." While both cuts are urgent reflections on his recent successes, "On Me" is the more introspective of the two.
Instead of celebrating his wins, Lil Baby is taking a more wise approach to his spending:
I been savin' more than I been spendin', that's what I be on
He acknowledges his weaknesses:
I'm a human, I'm not perfect, I know sometimes I be wrong
And is pensive:
Know some people hate that I'm on top, I bulletproof the car
"On Me" had been highly anticipated by Lil Baby's fans after the rapper and his girlfriend, Jayda Cheaves, teased multiple excerpts on their Instagram pages.
Two producers are credited on the cut. They are:
Chidi "Chi Chi" Osondu, who also supplied the beat for Lil Baby's "Social Distancing" and "Get Money."
Amman "Evrgrn" Nuran, whose other credits include Stunna 4 Vegas and Offset's "Up The Smoke" and YoungBoy Never Broke Again's "I Choose You."
Lil Baby and Keemotion co-directed the video, which features memories from a past vacation, including the rapper on a boat with friends and riding a Jet Ski. We also see Baby sitting on a private jet next to Quality Control Music co-founder Pierre "Pee" Thomas, who bought him a white Bentley for his 26th birthday.
Lil Baby released the song's remix, featuring Megan Thee Stallion, on April 27, 2021. It is the first collaboration between the rappers.
