Songfacts®:

  • This track features Ty Dolla Sign's long-time friend YG. Both artists talk about how they no longer care about their Exes. It was the duo's first collaboration since "Toot it and Boot it," YG's debut commercial single in 2010.
  • Ty Dolla and Bongo By The Way's beat is based around 112's 1996 hit single "Only You (Bad Boy Remix)." "[112] got [their bass line] from the Seventies," Ty Dolla Sign told Rolling Stone. "Ain't nothin' new under the sun."
  • The song's chorus is an interpolation of the opening lines of Donell Jones' 1999 hit single " Where I Wanna Be."
