Lil Baby's “Close Friends” Explained | Song Stories

Published on Oct 10, 2018
Gunna and Lil Baby’s collaborative project 'Drip Harder' has been out for a few days now, and it’s starting to become clear which songs fans are gravitating towards. Aside from the lead single “Drip Too Hard,” the most popular song from the project on Genius is “Close Friends.” The track, which has earned over 250,000 Genius pageviews so far, is one of two on 'Drip Harder' that doesn’t feature Gunna. Instead, the Turbo-produced song finds Lil Baby reflecting on the rise and fall of a relationship that seems to mirror his own journey with his girlfriend Amour Jayda (a.k.a. Jayda Cheaves).
