Songfacts®:

  • Summer Walker has been waiting a long time but now she's found true love with her current beau. She's not going to let it slip, and here the songstress warns him she'll "go to hell or jail" if he cheats on her.
  • Walker is joined on the track by Jhené Aiko, whose verse reiterates these protective feelings. Walker was previously featured on the LA singer-songwriter's remix for "Triggered (Freestyle)" alongside 21 Savage.
  • The song title is never actually mentioned in the lyric; however, the track's general vibe is that the two singers will adopt extreme measures should their men be tempted to stray.
  • Most of the Over It album was produced by Walker's boyfriend, London on da Track. The Atlanta beatmaker's other credits include Rich Gang's "Lifestyle," Drake's "Sneakin" and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's "Swervin." Roark Bailey, Aubrey Robinson and Scott Storch also contributed to this song's instrumentation.
