CB wastes no time getting to the point on the sultry single produced by D.A. Doman, and it’s all about getting the apple of his eye home for some alone time. The R-rated bedroom banger finds Breezy back in baby-making mode, seducing his girl with all the right moves and unapologetically raunchy lines

The singer gave the world a preview on Instagram when he released visuals of him and Brooklyn rapper Casanova in the studio performing the record.
