The song features liberal's moderately relaxed rap over an urban and mellow beat created by ynkmr. While the lyrics explore the feeling of disconnection, the song's haunting melody and atmospheric production as well as the nostalgic vibes of the female vocal creates a comfortable groove, which makes it a must-listen for fans of R&B/ Hip-Hop music.
