Songfacts®:

  • Lil Yachty is telling a groupie here that he just wants a one night stand and he has no intention of marrying her.

    I know you want this for life
    Taking pictures with all my ice
    But I can't have no wife


    The girl is clearly getting the wrong idea about the relationship. Yachty just wants to have fun, but she is hoping for something more long-lasting.
  • The song was produced by TheGoodPerry, whose birth name is Perry Paris Moise. At the time that Moise supplied the beat , he was using the moniker of Burberry Perry, but he was forced to change his name to TheGoodPerry in July 2016 because of a lawsuit filed from the British clothing-line Burberry.
  • Yachty told Genius about the making of the song.

    "He sent me the beat when I was on my way to the studio and I wrote it in like five minutes. It just came to me instantly. It was really a snippet but we just liked it so much."
