  • This is a remake of the classic folk song. Sage the Gemini told The Boombox it just came to his mind. "I was just freestyling the chorus… it's like something just gets stuck in your head like 'Guantanamera,'" he recalled. "It sounds like it's hard to say so it's interesting for people to try to say it."
  • The song features Trey Songz. "When I was recording, Trey Songz was recording in the next room," Sage explained. "We kind of know each other - well, not like know him where I go over his house — but he was next door and Steelo Brim from Ridiculousness, that's my partner he played it for Trey and he started shaking his head and said, "I coming over there to record that right now."
