Earlier today in an interview with Billboard, Envy spoke about the project and how he knew it was time to unleash it. “For me, it was all about the feeling…” he said. “I wanted to create something that had that Jersey fist-pump vibe mixed with that Jersey club vibe but when the beat drops, you get that trap music vibe.” He also noted that Fetty Wap’s signature raspy vocals were the perfect fit for the track.
