Songfacts®:

  • A sequel to Logic's song "44 Bars" from his 2016 mixtape Bobby Tarantino, this lyrically explicit track contains just one verse made out of precisely 44 bars. Frequent collaborator 6ix supplied the rapid-fire beat for both tracks.
  • Logic talks about various issues as well as bragging about his current position in the rap game.

    Talk all you want, we are not the same
    Step in the spot, now they know the name
    Sold more albums my first week than Harry Styles and Katy Perry
    If that ain't a sign of the times then I don't know what is, man this s--t is scary


    Logic's wordplay references Harry Styles' debut solo single "Sign of the Times" and his boasting is backed up by the facts. The rapper's 2017 album Everybody sold 196,000 copies in its opening week. That amount topped the debut frame figures of Harry Styles' self-titled album released seven days later (193,000) and Katy Perry's Witness, which was dropped the following month (162,000).
  • "44 More" borrows throughout its production multiple elements from the beat from "Zoom", a track from Future's 2017 self-titled album. The song also samples the phrase "Turn me up!" which is taken from hip hop collective Fantastic Freaks' cut "Fantastic Freaks at the Dixie" on the soundtrack to the 1983 hip-hop film Wild Style. Kanye West utilized the same sample on his Life of Pablo tune "Waves."
