Songfacts®:

  • This song finds YNW Melly and Kanye West going back-to-back on the topic of mental health struggles. Yeezy raps about how relationships bring out his alter egos.

    Oh, now, I got mixed personalities
    She got me stressin', singin' melodies


    The fickle girl they sing of is just as unstable. She keeps switchin' up on Melly.

    This girl, she got mixed personalities
    One day she's happy, then she mad at me
