Grass Is Always Greener

Album: Ludaversal (2015)
  • Ludacris told Vibe that this is a very personal song. "I think everybody can relate because no matter what you're doing, you're always looking at something else like it's better than what you have," he said.
  • The grass is always greener is an English idiom with the meaning of other people's lives or circumstances seeming to be more desirable than one's own. It is a shortened form of the proverb, "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence," which is usually used as a caution against dissatisfaction with one's own lot in life.
  • Ludacris said during a listening session for Ludaversal that this is his favorite song on the album. "Everybody can relate to this because any and everything we do, we're conditioned to think that somebody else got something [that's] better than what we have, or just because we doing one thing, somebody's doing something better," he explained. "But it's probably the most personal record in terms of everything I'm saying on this record is true with what's going on in my mind at the current time."
