Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby flexing about their busy sex lives.

    Megan, as her alter ego Hot Girl Meg, boasts about how she's got her male lovers wrapped around her finger. Meg is so good in bed that when she stops seeing a guy, he turns into a "cry baby" and his friends and dad turn against her.

    DaBaby, meanwhile, brags that he's got so many women on the go, he can't remember their names.
  • Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby have worked together on two previous occasions: Megan's "Cash S---" and DaBaby's "Nasty."
  • DA Doman supplied the bass-heavy beat. The Chicago native's other credits include Chris Brown's "Privacy," Tyga's "Taste," and Eminem's "Godzilla."
  • When Megan teased the song's video a month before its release, fans saw her doing the "Cry Baby" dance on the floor while DaBaby watched on. This sparked the Cry Baby Challenge on TikTok, which encourages fans to imitate the twerk routine Megan learned from a New Orleans friend.
  • Colin Tilley directed the video, which sees Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby as doll-like figures wreaking havoc in TiTi's Toy Store after the attendant closes it for the night. Instagram comedian BlameItonKWay appears as TiTi.

    Colin Tilley previously directed Megan's visuals for "Don't Stop," "Body," and her collaboration with Cardi B, "WAP."
