Songfacts®:

  • This club-tailored song finds Meek Mill hooking up with Cardi B. Both artists brag about their rise to fame. While the Philly rapper boasts about all the women who want to have sex with him, the "Bodak Yellow" artist rips rhymes about her elevation from her stripper days.
  • There were raised eyebrows over Meek Mill not teaming up former girlfriend Nicki Minaj on Championships, but including her rap rival Cardi B on this song. However, Meek claimed he reached out to Cardi to record a verse for "On Me" simply because he thought the New Yorker would be a good fit for the track.

    "Why wouldn't I have a song with Cardi?" he queried in a Beats 1 interview. "I ain't on that. I'm on some straight positive get money, doing what I need to do, the way I need to do it, and no emotions with this rap s--t... I ain't got nothing to do with that (feud)."
  • The song was produced by Shondrae "Bangladesh" Crawford, who has previously supplied instrumentation for the likes of Lil Wayne ("6 foot 7 foot"), Beyoncé ("Diva") and Usher ("She Don't Know").
