On the funk-pop track, Rexha laments seeing the object of her affection paying attention to another woman on social media, which brings out insecurity. “Baby, I’m jealous/Of the pictures that you like,” she sings on the chorus. “Baby, I’m jealous/Of the girls with lighter eyes/Baby, I’m jealous/And I know that ain’t right.”
Doja Cat acknowledges that wandering eyes can lead to a bad emotional headspace, but she takes the confident route on her verse. “Baby, I’m a bad bitch/If he fiendin’ he’ll prolly get a catfish,” she raps. “Keep him dreamin’ to pull up on a nap, shit/I don’t even be askin’ him, who dat chick?”
This is Rexha’s first release of 2020. She has been working on the follow-up to her debut studio album, 2018’s Expectations. In 2019, she dropped the single “Last Hurrah” and teamed up with Chainsmokers for “Call You Mine.”
Doja is set to perform a medley of her biggest hits at the Oct. 14 Billboard Music Awards. A first-time nominee, she’s up for top R&B song with Tyga for their collab, “Juicy.”
