The song is the third track on 21 Savage, Offset and Metro Boomin's collaborative studio album Without Warning, which was released in October 2017.[4] It was ranked the 44th best song of 2017 by Complex Media.[5]

On February 4, 2018, the track was certified platinum before even being released as a single, marking Offset's first platinum song as a lead artist.
