Songfacts®:

  • Tory Lanez has fallen deeply in love with a girl here and he tells her not to be afraid to feel the same way.

    Everyone falls in love sometimes
    I don't know 'bout you but it ain't a crime
    If you let me love you, love you, love you for long time baby
    If you let me touch you, and if you let me love you 'til the mañana, oh


    The lyric is an interpolation of Tanto Metro and Devonte's 1999 dancehall track, "Everyone Falls in Love."
  • The song was produced by American hitmaker Benny Blanco (Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," Kesha's "TiK ToK," Bruno Mars' "Grenade") and his protégé Norwegian DJ and producer Cashmere Cat (Kid Ink's "Body Language" and Ariana Grande's "Be My Baby").
  • The Toronto native croons the reggae-flavored R&B jam in a Jamaican-Canadian accent. "I didn't want to go on the record and start singing in an American way or Canadian kind of way," Lanez told The Guardian. "I was raised around so many Jamaicans, so I wanted to go at Luv with an accent and give it a Caribbean vibe."
