Songfacts®:

  • The first R&B act on the Top Dawg Entertainment roster, SZA earned the opportunity to open for Coldplay in 2013. So nervous was the New Jersey siren prior to the gig that she didn't sleep for two-and-a-half days beforehand.

    The lyrics for this otherworldly track came to SZA after she'd guzzled several bottles of champagne that the band's frontman Chris Martin had given her after the show.
