Songfacts®:

  • This sensual cut finds Swae Lee and Drake discussing the merits of taking it slow in a relationship.

    Kill your vibe, they don't have the right
    Baby don't fight it, you're giving me life
    Take your time, set the mood right
    Settle down, skeptical at first but now I'm not


    The slow groover marked the second time Swae Lee and Drake had featured on the same record, following their joint appearance on Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode."
  • A snippet of the track first surfaced in May 2019 at Coachella when producer Virgil Abloh previewed the collaboration. It was officially released on August 16, 2019 alongside Swae Lee's solo track "Sextasy."
  • The hypnotic, island-based beat comes courtesy of Nigerian Afrobeats musician Tekno with additional production by Mike Will Made It.
