Queen Naija recalled in a Genius
attribution the day that she wrote the song:
"I was at my brother's house, downstairs in the guest room. I was just sitting there, vibing to music, because I'm going through all this stuff, so I need to do something to occupy myself. I just started listening to beats, and I was like, 'This is nice.' I was like, 'You told me you love me, but I haven't been feelin' this lately.' So I just kept going with it. And the whole, 'You say you love keepin' me fly but can't keep me from looking crazy,' that basically means when a guy showers you with gifts and all this good stuff and jewelry, but you got me out here lookin' stupid. You like to keep me fly, lookin' good, but I still look dumb."
