Songfacts®:

  • Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee recruited Nikki Minaj to croon the hook of this strip club banger. The Mississippi rappers previously worked with the Queen Barb when she added a verse to their "No Flex Zone" track. She praised the duo for this cut, tweeting that it goes "hard as f---."
  • Atlanta rapper Young Thug spits the third verse in which he boasts about losing count about the number of women he's had sex with. Slim Jimmy told Complex about the collaboration: "It was DJ Drama's studio and Young Thug was in there," he said. "We went in there and just did it so fast. He's dope. He's funny."
  • This was the first time the Rae Sremmurd duo had met Nicki Minaj. Slim Jimmy recalled to Complex: "She walked in looking like the most beautiful woman on the planet, and everything was in slow motion. Then time stopped. I couldn't say anything because my mouth wouldn't open. I was trying to say Hi, but I couldn't."
