Songfacts®:

  • Toronto rapper Nav collaborates here with his XO label boss, The Weeknd. The track finds both the Canadian artists bragging about their success with women.
  • The Weeknd sings during the chorus about stealing someone's girl.

    I just hit a lick and I know you feelin' some way
    (Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah)
    I just took that chick, and I know you feelin' some way, oh yeah
    She just want a nigga like me, you feelin' some way, way, way, yeah
    She just want a nigga like me, I play no


    At the time of the song's release, The Weeknd was involved with Selena Gomez, who used to be in a relationship with Justin Bieber. The Biebs has taken several shots at Abel Tesfaye, including calling his music "wack." It has been suggested that the XO boss is throwing some shade at the Biebs here, boasting that his hook-up with Gomez is making him jealous ("feelin' some way").
