Position to Win

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Migos recorded this song for Mountain Dew's "Do the Dew" ad campaign. The Atlanta trio incorporate a subtle motivational message within their trademark trap sound.

    That's a call I can't miss
    Set my goals like a go, hit the switch
    Work, work, work, check it off the checklist


    The commercial dubbed "Let's Do" is a rallying cry for the unmotivated to step up out of their lethargy and aspire to be winners.
  • Quavo told Complex that "Position to Win" is a motivational, energetic cut recorded to inspire people to go out and fight.

    "Fight for what's right, fight for nothing but positive energy," he said. "No negative energy. Ready to step it up, go hard and don't quit, you know what I'm saying? It automatically puts you in a position to win once you step it up. If you wake up every day trying to step it up, and go hard and don't quit, it automatically puts you in a position to win. So that's what that song is about. It also gives you the message to just do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, just like Mountain Dew says. You got to do it."
  • As well as Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff, the ad also features UFC star Holly Holm, NBA All-Star Joel Embiid, plus skateboarders Sean Malto and Mariah Duran.
