• This soulful Cali anthem finds Ty Dolla Sign sharing good and bad memories of his hometown. He recruited Los Angeles's own Kendrick Lamar to drop a verse while Brandy, and James Fauntleroy harmonize on the hook.
  • Asked by Billboard magazine how her contribution to the song came about, Brandy replied: "I'm a huge fan of Ty. I think he's awesome -- great singer, great writer. I'm a big fan of Kendrick Lamar and I've worked with James Fauntleroy before so when Ty asked me to be a part of the song, I was like, 'Yes.' And it's basically background [vocals] and harmonies and that's like my favorite thing to do. It's such a great song and I'm from LA."
