Songfacts®:

  • This Wale and Drake featuring track was inspired by the medically mandated diet that Ross undertook after suffering a couple of seizures in October 2011. He explained to MTV News that when he was leaving hospital, "the doctor told me, 'You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while.'"

    Rozay's fruit of choice was pineapples. For the next three weeks," he said, "I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together. Drizzy came in, as well as Wale, and it's kinda like, 'She could be my diced pineapple. This special lady, she could be what I wake up to every morning and help me get by every day."
  • Shot on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, the song's music video was directed by Director X and features Drake and Wale as well as Rick Ross.
