Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jimmy commented to Complex magazine: "This is pretty much everything everybody in America wants to say to their ex. Everybody wants take a s--t on they ex-bitch."
Swae Lee recalled the story of the song: "We made that song with Mike WiLL, we were in his car actually in his S6 like, 'My S6, I'm riding in my S6.' [Singing together] But what we were like, 'What about our ex bitch? My ex bitch I'm shinin on my ex bitch.' I had about two serious relationships with girls. But at the end we're rolling stones. Jimmy was in love. I was in love probably like 'two times.'"
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
