Songfacts®:

  • Travi$ Scott links up with his idol Kid Cudi on this late-night party anthem. It is the first time the pair have collaborated despite talking about working together a lot. "Kid Cudi was my guy," Scott said in a 2015 Complex interview. "If I had no weed, he was my drug."
  • Scott interpolates Cudi's breakout single "Day 'n' Nite" at the beginning of the second verse.

    Day 'n' nite, I toss and turn
    I keep stress in my mind, mind
    I seek the peace, sometimes I can't restrain
