Songfacts®:

  • Max wrote this romantic song about his feelings for his wife Emily whom he married in April 2016.

    Kiss you each morning
    With strawberry skies
    'Cause I get so lost in
    Your blueberry eyes


    Maxwell "Max" Schneider is best known for his 2016 sultry single "Lights Down Low," which he played when he proposed to Emily Cannon.
  • Max is good friends with Suga from BTS, and after taking him to a Kobe Bryant tribute basketball game, the Korean agreed to jump on this song. Max recalled to Apple Music: "At that game, we had such a great time, we talked about music, and I said, 'I'd love you to be on my album, too.' I sent him all the songs, every song on the record, and he ended up really loving 'Blueberry Eyes.' It's so perfect."
  • Suga spits his verse in Korean. According to Max, his lyrics are "vows, that's what the song is about."
  • Max previously worked with Suga when he contributed to the Korean pop star's 2020 D-2 mixtape track, "Burn It," released under the name of Agust D.
