Songfacts®:

  • Yung Bleu (real name Jeremy Biddle) recorded this love-drunk anthem for his Love Scars: The 5 Stages of Emotions EP. Released on October 2, 2020, the record marked the Mobile, Alabama rapper's first music after departing Columbia Records and signing to Empire Distribution.
  • The melodic ballad finds Yung Bleu mulling over a former lover he still holds on to.

    They say time heals
    Don't go build no life without me 'cause you're mine still
    And I don't wanna go unless you make me
    Down on my knees hoping you take me


    Yung Bleu is unable to move on and doesn't want his ex to move on either.
  • NBA player DeMarcus Cousins is on friendly terms with Yung Bleu, and when he heard this track, he told the Alabama rapper he envisioned Drake on the song. Cousins contacted the OVO head honcho hoping he would jump on a remix. Three days later, Drake responded to Cousins asking him to send the record.

    Yung Bleu told Complex Drake turned the verse around in one day. "It only took a couple of hours," he said. "Everybody on my team was thinking that if he did do it, it was going to take at least like three or four months to get it. He sent it back the same day."
  • Keeping the theme of the original romantic song, Bleu and Drake confess to still have feelings for their love interests. In Drake's instance, their relationship didn't go as far as he'd wanted to.

    Ashamed to tell my friends how much I'd do for you
    'Cause they know that you would never do the same for me


    The woman didn't reciprocate his energy.
  • Empire released the remix on October 16, 2020 as part of an expanded edition of the Love Scars EP. The song debuted at #52 on the Hot 100, marking Bleu's career-first visit to the chart and Drake's 228th entry. The track's success simultaneously pushed the EP into the Billboard 200.
  • Nate Rhoads supplied the trap beat for both the original and remix. A music producer based out of New Jersey, Rhoads co-produced both "Rewind" and "No Days Off" on Fetty Wap's eponymous debut album.
  • Yung Bleu co-stars in the video with social media star India Love, who plays his love interest. Drake doesn't feature in the clip but his verse still plays over the visual's storyline of Yung Bleu not wanting his girl to marry someone else.
  • Yung Bleu later included the Drake-featuring remix on his debut album, Moon Boy.
