With lyrics like “I’m a badass Brooklyn brown skin btch / And I love a hood ngga with some toxic dck / Nothing but some socks, beef, and brocs in it / Have me walking all crooked in my Crocs and sht,” Lola Brooke exudes confidence and sensuality. Bryson Tiller joins the track with his smooth vocals on the hook, singing, “I’m yours for the summer / Wanna drink until we’re drunk? / I’m choosin’ you, baby / Things I wanna do to you, baby.”
Discussing the inspiration behind the song, Lola Brooke shared, “I had to go big on this the Brooklyn way! I channeled my inner soft girl with a twist (laughs), but that balance is needed. There’s more that meets the eyes and ears with me, and Foxy is someone who paved the way for girls like me, so knowing that adds to the specialness of it all.”
She continued, “Working with Bryson on this was great. I’m a fan of his as well, so that was a full-circle moment. It feels great to know that we got one that’s being received so well by our fans.”
Accompanying the release is a glamorous music video directed by Samuel Mcknight, enhancing the overall allure of the track.
