Songfacts®:

  • This ode to a willing woman and diatribe against haters features Drake part singing and part rapping the chorus. The T-Minus-produced slow groover is a track from Wayne's Tha Carter IV album.
  • A DJ Scoob Doo shot video went online shortly before the release of Tha Carter IV revealing behind-the-scenes footage of the duo recording the song. It shows Wayne previewing his verses to Drake via video instant message before he turns over his own. "I went stupid in there," Weezy says to the Toronto MC. "I don't know what I said, but I made it different." "Yeah, that s--t is crazy," replies Drake.
  • Wayne wrote this song after he'd returned home from his eight months prison sentence on weapons possession charges. Cash Money President Mack Maine told MTV News that Weezy conceptualized Tha Carter IV in three stages: pre-prison, in-prison and post-prison. "I don't think he would've did 'She Will' or 'So Special' right before he went in," Maine said of his more female-friendly tracks. "That wasn't where his mind was at, but all in all, you got some of Wayne before he went in, you actually got some of Wayne while he was in there, and you got some when he came out. So you got three different sides of Wayne."
