  • Lyrics
  • Here, The Carters pay tribute to the close friends each has developed throughout their hugely successful lives. While Beyoncé doesn't drop any specific names, Jay-Z shouts out longtime buddies such as Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith and his cousin Emory Jones, as well as others who majorly contributed to his success.

    Ty mama died, I was there, my nephew died, he was there
    He in my house more than I be there, more than B there
    Ty-Ty there, E there, Breezy there, Juan there


    Jay concludes his verse by revealing that, his longtime best friend, Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith, who is Blue Ivy's Godfather, would take care of his kids if anything happens to him and Beyonce.

    I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dyin', nigga, I ain't leavin'
    Ty-Ty take care of my kids, after he done grievin'
    If y'all don't understand that, we ain't meant to be friends
  • Canadian rapper NAV is credited on this song as it borrows from the instrumentations used on his unreleased 2018 track "Neptune."
