Drake jumps in for a verse in which he name drops '50s French movie icon Bridget Bardot. The same foursome also teamed up for another Tha Carter V track "Believe Me."
The song was debuted during the first leg of a joint American tour by Wayne and Drake at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center near Buffalo, New York on August 8, 2014. During one segment of the show the two Young Money rappers battled each other as the crowd used a specially-released app to determine who wins the night.

"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
