  • Lyrics
  • The beat for this grind-meets-gospel cut was supplied by Toronto producer Boi-1da with his protégés Zalezy and Bret Ryan, a.k.a. The Maven Boys. The trio's other credits when they've worked together include the title track to Game's Jesus Piece album.
  • The official video for the song was directed by Grizz Lee and is a return to Minaj's rap roots with imagery that includes a motorcyclist performing stunts. The clip also shows Minaj playing the piano and performing the song in the studio as well as featuring Safaree Lloyd Samuels, who is the MC's assistant, best friend and rumoured boyfriend.
