  • Lyrics
  • This us-against-the-world smooth, percussive track finds Lil Wayne teaming up with his rumored girlfriend and Young Money signee Christina Milian. The song finds Weezy professing his desire for her as the pair croon in unison on the hook: "Mama, I'm in love with a hot girl, and they just don't get it."
  • Wayne and Christina Milian debuted the song on November 24, 2014 at the American Music Awards. They performed the tune against a backdrop of flames.
  • The pair teamed up on the song while Tina Turn Up (as Wayne calls her) was filming her E! reality show Christina Milian Turned Up. "His manager Cortez heard the song and was like, 'Wayne needs this on his album' and literally when we were filming the episode while we were in the studio," she told E!. "That's how that whole thing happened."
