Songfacts®:

  • This track features Swae Lee on the hook. The Rae Sremmurd singer/rapper also contributes the first verse. The release of the collaborative track coincided with the beginning of Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremurd's co-headlining tour, which kicked off on July 21, 2018 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit, Michigan.
  • The collaboration was birthed when Swae Lee randomly texted Wiz a 20-minute sung freestyle. Khalifa recalled to Billboard: "I chopped it up and put a verse to it and sent it back. He said, 'This s--t's crazy.' His whole squad was with it and everybody was with it."

    He added: "That was really interesting because people are like, 'I gotta get in the studio with you' or 'Don't mess with my vocals' but he's just was really free with it. He was like, 'Here, big bruh. Chop it up. Have some fun with it.'"
