Songfacts®:

  • "Bussin" is a slang word used when something is really great and is making a person happy ("that song bussin'"). During this playful song's chorus, Nicki Minaj flexes about some things in her life that are "bussin." They include:

    Her high quality VVS diamonds
    Her big booty
    Shopping bag full of designer brands
    Driving a luxury foreign car

    The rap queen continues to flaunt her opulence during her two verses as she boasts about her bling and fashion sense.
  • Lil Baby joins Nicki Minaj. He continues the braggadocio theme as the two exchange lines throughout the song.
  • Released on February 11, 2022, "Bussin" is Minaj's second consecutive single featuring Lil Baby. It follows "Do We Have A Problem?," which she dropped a week earlier.

    When Minaj and Lil Baby did the first song, they thought they could improve it, so they recorded a second number. Meanwhile, the first one grew on them and their team, so they put both out as "they both so magical."
  • Two up-and-coming producers, DJ Tizz and Swaggyono, created the staccato, menacing beat. It is DJ TTizz's first major placement and Swaggyono's second after producing Freddie Gibbs' track "Big Boss Rabbit."
