Songfacts®:

  • "Late At Night" is a gangsta love song where Roddy Ricch sings of his passionate feelings for his girl.

    Late at night
    Kiss me in the mornin' or late at night


    Ricch can't help boasting about his prowess between the sheets.

    I say I like the way I took ya' on a wave
    I had you screamin' my name out


    And he brags about all the designer labels he buys for her.

    I got the Gucci splattered all on her knick knacks
    Fifty racks, I'm 'bout to break her off like a KitKat
    And her purse got F's like the wheels on the 'Bach


    In return for treating her well, Ricch expects his lover to stay committed to him.
  • Roddy Ricch released this as a single from his second album on June 4, 2021. Speaking with Complex a few months previously, the Compton rapper said he planned on being "more vulnerable" on his sophomore record, reasoning that since he's not on Instagram, he wants to bring his fans into his life through his music instead.
  • Roddy Ricch wrote the song alongside its producers, Mustard and Gylttryp. The two beatmakers have collaborated with Ricch on several previous occasions, including the hit songs "Ballin'" and "High Fashion."
