“My new track with Budweiser for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 soundtrack is special to me,” Lil Baby said in a statement. “This is about the journey we’ve all been on over the past few years and the celebration of what’s to come. When I started in music in 2017, I embarked on a dream that took me to where I am now, and that’s how I want fans to feel when they hear the song. Hope it makes you feel like you’re stepping onto the World Cup pitch taking steps towards your own dreams, whatever that means to you.
