The lip oil is thought to be a reference to one of Miller's verses on the track, “Say, I’m thinkin’ ’bout every second, every hour/ Do my singin’ in the shower, pickin’ petals off of flowers like/ Do she love me, do she love me not?/ I ain’t a player, I just …”

Miller died tragically in 2018 from an accidental overdose.
