Songfacts®:

  • The song title plays off the name of the famous television personality Jerry Springer. During the track, Tory Lanez talks about how "sprung" (meaning crazy love) he feels for his girl.
  • The song was recorded for Chixtape 5, the fifth installment of Tory Lanez's Chixtape series. Each track contains a sample of a 2000s-era R&B hit; "Jerry Sprunger" interpolates T-Pain's 2005 debut single, "I'm Sprung."

    I'm sprung, she got me doing the dishes

    After clearing the sample, T-Pain agreed to contribute his own verse. He references how Lanez turned his phrase it into an entire song.

    Tory took one line and made a hot song
    Now the chicks want tapes, I am not gone
  • This was the first song Lanez recorded for Chixtape 5. He told Apple Music how it helped him get all the rest of the features on the record. "I would go to people and tell them, 'You know, T-Pain did "Jerry Sprunger," you have to hop on this album.'"
  • "Jerry Sprunger" is the second collaboration between the two artists, following T-Pain's "Getcha Roll On" off his 2019 album 1UP.
  • The song was T-Pain's first US Top 40 hit since "5 O'Clock" peaked at #10 in 2011.
