Songfacts®:

  • Tamar described this song to The Boombox as "an amazing throwback record." She added: "It's one of those summertime records that are so familiar to you and you just wanna rock out because you feel like you lived it. It kind of reminds you of the times you are in the car and jamming to your favorite records, that kind of a feel."
  • The song samples The Notorious B.I.G's 1994 single "Juicy," which itself borrowed from the 1983 track "Juicy Fruit" by the funk group Mtume.
