Billie has referred to Vince as being "a god." Commenting during an interview that his work made him her top choice to feature on the song.
“Vince Staples was my NUMBER 1 choice, so when we got him to hear it and he agreed to do, it was incredible and the verse he did is so mf good,” she said. “He is a god and I’m excited for it to finally come out!”
