"Dreams come true!" wrote Ty Dolla $ign on Twitter today. "We got a song with Beyoncé and [Jay-Z]." He was talking to his frequent collaborator Dernst Emile II, who co-wrote the song alongside Ty and of course the two leading artists themselves. The influence of both Ty and Emile is immediately present, with the horn arrangement sounding like it's straight off the intro to Beach House 4. A few of Bey's melodies also sound distinctly Ty, and his voice is present in as a harmony throughout. 

As she does on much of the album, Bey steals the show, as she glides over the baroque arrangement with effortless style. On the final verse, she breaks from her in-the-pocket flow and brags about making the Forbes list and dropping her daughter off at school in the same breath. Hov has a few memorable lines of his own, particularly, "We measure success by how many people successful next to you / Here we say you broke if everybody gets broke except for you." Does it apply to anyone in particular? If the shoe fits.

Quotable Lyrics:
Ain't nothing to it, I boss so I bought my momma a whip
My great-great-grandchildren already rich
That's a lot of brown chi'r'en on your Forbes list
Probably looking around my compound on my fortress, boss
I be ridin' around with my seat reclining
Droppin' my daughter off at school every morning
We slammin' car doors, I be true balling on these bum whores
