Father’s songs exude casual promiscuity, and even though most of his songs revolve around his interactions with women, they rarely feel stale. He can repackage similar ideas in new ways, very much like Pusha T does with his coke raps. “Why Don’t U” is another track in this vein, centered around a female’s pining requests for love. The Awful Records rapper grabs Abra for the chorus and ILoveMakonnen for a featured first verse.
The song is produced by Father, so he turns is grimy sound up to the max, incorporating his and Abra’s lazy groans into the chorus to make even more off-kilter. Both emcees contribute solid verses, and Makonnen’s rapping fits perfectly with Father’s conversational style.

I'm tired of looking for love
as much as I'm tired of looking for drugs
I'm tired of being high all the time
to convince niggas I give a fuck
