  • The song landed at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100 after heavy downloads the week of the album's release, before it was even chosen as a single.
  • Ross shot the song's music video with Gil Green. "The 'Aston Martin' video was definitely some sh--," the rapper told MTV News. "Me, Drake, Birdman came out, Chrisette Michele. Just the setting, the locations — that really took the video over the top. We captured that beautiful side of Miami, that outdoors feeling. We did our thing. The performances most definitely was next level. I'm excited about that record and that video."
  • Aston Martin Lagonda Limited is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire. The name is derived from Lionel Martin who founded the company in 1921 and from the fact that Martin used to race cars near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire. A long association between screen hero James Bond and the Aston Martin began with the silver DB5 that appears in Goldfinger, (1964) and Thunderball, (1965).
