The veteran rapper dropped the single on Thursday, 29 October along with a lyrics music video. The track also features singer SZA. Busta's song is a sample of the Jackson 5's classic I'll Be There.
It is the first time that Kendrick dropped a verse this year, according to People. This is his first verse since 2019. The star made waves in 2019 when he featured on SiR's song titled Hair Down and Rearview by Raphael Saadiq, among other songs.

In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Vin Diesel has posted his first TikTok video. What makes the video super special is that the US actor is jamming to South Africa's Brenda Fassie's song Vulindlela.
The superstar is vibing with a Nigerian sister @itsjustnifee on the epic video. The Fast & Furious film series actor told his followers that he was introduced to Brenda Fassie's classic two years ago when he was in Mzansi to film his movie titled Bloodshot.
He said it was his mother's birthday when the crew blasted the song and "lifted my spirit through the roof". He decided to bust a move to the song because his mom celebrated her birthday a few days ago.
