ControversyEdit

The beat was produced by Pi'erre Bourne. Before the song was released, Trippie Redd instead gave the beat to 6ix9ine, causing Pi'erre to announce he would no longer work with Trippie Redd because of 6ix9ine's sexual misconduct allegations. Pi'erre's lawyers later made 6ix9ine remove Pi'erre's producer tag from the song.[6]
