  • Mac Miller ends his The Divine Feminine album with this sexual ballad, where he is joined by Kendrick Lamar. The two rappers previously collaborated on "Fight the Feeling," a track from Miller's 2012 mixtape, Macadelic. He explained on Beats 1 Radio:

    "We did a record in 2012 on this mixtape I had. There was actually a time when Kendrick Lamar was opening for me on tour, but now this one feels like a real moment like we were in the studio together, like we created something.

    All these artists have their own planets that they work on. You gotta create something new together for me. I don't want to go do a song with Kendrick and make a Kendrick song. What does our song like? It's such a feeling and a journey that's why I love that record. It goes so many places. It sounds like being in the ocean, relaxing, calm, floating and just like there and comfortable in your thoughts, and that's how the record ends, which is so awesome."
  • That's Miller's grandma speaking at the end of the track. Asked by Billboard magazine how he decided to have her on there, Miller replied:

    "I was actually in a studio in New York, and she's in Pittsburgh. I told my mom, "Mom, I need you to go over to Nanny's house and just put the phone down, and ask her to tell the story of her and Poppy." And she killed it! It was so poetic and beautiful. I cried multiple times when I first heard that."
