All three artists on the song speak about their coping mechanisms for painful emotions. The Kid sings about reeling back to Hennessy alcohol mixed with Coca Cola to numb his senses. He reveals that he got done dirty by his ex and it is going to take some shots of whiskey to drown those memories.
And no matter how hard I try
Memories still living deep in my mind
LAROI has also seen people close to him change. As his success grows, he has seen people around him change. Some even who he considered friends. But he understands that this is the nature of things.
Polo G and Stunna Gambino have a slightly different approach to coping with heartache. They sing about dumping money on expensive cars, specifically a BMW i8 and a Lamborghini Urus.
At least, all three artists have enough money to buy their way out of heartbreak if need be.
