The three-and-a-half-minute track hears the Good News rapper deliver a slow and melodic flow, almost singing halfway through her verse. Frontman Adam Levine called Megan Thee Stallion a “superstar” in his recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, adding that they were impressed with her versatility. “And when we actually saw her in person, and we shot the video together, I told her. I was like the little break where you go to the melodic thing, to be honest, it actually shows this new kind of branch of what she does, and this new versatility that she’s going to show everybody right now,” he said. “And I was so, I remember when I heard it, I was like, oh, that’s big. That’s a side of her I had never really heard yet.”
Levine added, “Well it’s just, it’s one of those great songs that I think kind of continues to build. And the way she built her part was just, it couldn’t have been a more epic kind of climax for the song. I mean, it really is absolutely perfect. So, I mean, what she did was just miraculous, and it brought the song to a whole new level.”
