At the Juno Awards of 2019, the song won the Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year, and was a shortlisted nominee for Single of the Year.[3]

Background and compositionEdit

While attending a different act's showcase in Hollywood, Loud Luxury noticed Brando, who was part of the opening band.[4] They emailed Brando and his manager, and eventually were presented with a hip hop demo Brando had been working on called "Body On My", which they called "silly" with a "DJ Mustard, strip-club anthem vibe". They still enjoyed Brando's vocals, so reworked the track, speeding it up and layering "emotional chords" underneath the vocal track.[4] References in the lyrics to riding and dining in "the six" refer to a nickname for Toronto.

PerformancesEdit

On March 17, 2019, Loud Luxury performed this song along with the Western University Marching Band as part of the Juno Awards opening.[5]
