  • This straightforward braggadocios banger finds Young Thug hooking up with Travis Scott and Drake. The three rap heavyweights flex about their musical achievements, fame, luxury lifestyles and designer drip.
  • The song opens with Young Thug proclaiming:

    My career 'bout to blast like bubbly

    Though in the top tier of the rap hierarchy, Thug still reckons he can reach higher levels. He uses a simile that compares the imminent "blast off" of his career to a bubbly beverage such as champagne. When the bottle is opened, there is an explosion, sending the contents flying.
  • After verses from Thugger and Travis Scott, Drake slows it down as the beat switches. The Toronto MC boasts:

    Been on the charts for five hundred weeks, so somebody love when I speak

    Drake's run on the Hot 100 since his debut hit "Best I Ever Had" arrived on the chart in 2009 is unprecedented. His run of 431 consecutive weeks on the tally between May 2009 and August 2017 is a record, as is the number of songs he has placed. At the release date of "Bubbly," Drake had accumulated 258 different songs on the Hot 100.
  • Though Thug, Scott and Drake often collaborate, "Bubbly" marks the first time all three appeared on the same song together.
  • There are six credited producers: Wheezy, Cardo, Dez Wright, Johnny Juliana, MU Lean, and Yung Exclusive. As Wheezy is the only one to drop his producer tag at the beginning of the track, he's likely the principal beatmaker.

    Atlanta producer Wesley Tyler "Wheezy" Glass frequently works with Young Thug. Their other collaborations include "Family Don't Matter," "Bad Bad Bad," "Solid," and "Ski."
