Songfacts®:

  • Here, Tion Wayne teams up with Aitch to give props to the women in their lives and their love of the high life.
  • "Let's Go" samples Bobby Valentino's "Wee-ooh-wee-ooh-wee" siren vocals from Lil Wayne's 2008 single "Mrs. Officer." Both songs share a similar police theme.
  • Aitch's cheeky bars find him involved with a female cop.

    I said, "Baby, what's your number?"
    She said, "999" Huh.


    Aitch's lyric interpolates a similar line on "Mrs. Officer."

    I said, "Lady what's ya number?" She said, "911"
  • "Mrs. Officer" was one of Tion Wayne's favorite songs growing up, and he experimented with its beat on the way to the studio. "Aitch listened to the song in the car to try it in the studio," Tion Wayne told BBC Radio 1's Clara Amfo. "And then I'm like, the way that Aitch was throwing on his tune, I just knew that a beat that this was to work straightaway."
  • This is Tion Wayne's second collaboration with Aitch, after both rappers jumped on Russ Millions' 2019 "Keisha and Becky" remix.
  • Frequent Aitch collaborators WhYJay and LiTek ("Learning Curve," "My G") created the beat.
  • Tion Wayne's go-to visual collaborator Wowa directed the video. We see the rappers enjoying a game of golf with some friends. YouTube star IShowSpeed introduces the clip.

    Wayne admitted he'd never been to a golf course before. He started off missing the ball with his swings until the club golf professional showed him how to play.
