The song, which was first released on Ckay’s sophomore EP, Ckay The First, in 2019, went viral after a visual version featuring Joeboy and Kuami Eugene was released.
Ckay has remixed the song for mileage on various occasions after then. Winnie Harlow has danced to the song on her Instagram stories since then.
