Songfacts®:

  • Here, Migos link up with Drake to flex about their luxurious lifestyle. Each of the four artists maintain that because of their success in the rap game, they've earned the right to "havin' my way."
  • During the chorus Drake namechecks the three Migos, making it clear that all four of the rappers do as they please.

    I'm havin' my way, 'Set out here havin' his way
    Qua' out here havin' his way, and like the third Migo, I take
  • This song marks the third collaboration between Migos and Drake, following the Toronto MC's remix of "Versace" in 2013 and the Atlanta trio's 2018 hit "Walk It Talk It."

    Outside of Migos, Quavo appeared on Drake's "Portland" track, and the OVO rapper returned the favor on "Flip the Switch."
  • Quavo ends his verse with a reference to taking back a car he'd given to his girlfriend.

    Load up the bases, now I feel like Cal Ripken
    She had it her way, now she out of a Bentley


    Quavo began dating rapper and singer Saweetie in September 2018. Two years later, he gave her a light-blue Bentley Continental GT as a Christmas gift, only to repossess it when they broke up a few months later.
  • The beat is courtesy of:

    Producer duo Wallis Lane, who previously worked with Drake on "Is There More." They have also worked with Travis Scott ("Wake Up") and Post Malone ("Saint-Tropez").

    Canadian rapper Preme (Tiesto's "Jackie Chan").

    Jack LoMastro (Nav's "Good Intentions").

    Azul (French Montana's "Writing on the Wall").
