On it, she appears to call Gotti “obsessed” for repeatedly talking about her in interviews.
It’s giving obsessed, it’s giving you stressed / It’s giving you pressed, it’s giving this n-gga missing the best / But it’s been 20 years, please cry less / We can see you and your tears,” she sings on the track.

Irv Gotti went into detail about his alleged fling with Ashanti during his appearance on Drink Champs in August, claiming her 2002 hit “Happy” was recorded after they had sex.
“It helped her,” he said, referring to their rumored romance. “We just finished sleeping together, or whatever. I’m taking a shower. I’m in the shower, you know, a n-gga be creative after [sex] … I think of the whole track in the shower.”
Gotti said he immediately got out of the shower, made a phone call and went to the studio to work on the track with producer Chink Santana.
“’Okay, now it’s time for you to write. Yo, I want the shit to be a feel-good joint, like summertime,’” he recalled. “The energy, that record came about ’cause of our energy.”
Irv Gotti spoke more about Ashanti in BET’s Murder Inc. Story docu-series, claiming their working relationship grew into a romance.
“I’m separated from [my wife] Deb, I’m on my own.” he said. “And Ashanti’s coming to the studio every day and our friendship and bond is naturally growing. She used to wear these juicy sweats and her ass was looking fat. Her ass was looking great.
“So, one day I was like, ‘Yo, I’ll take you home.’ She said, ‘Bet, cool.’ We are walking to her front door of her crib. She turns and says goodbye and I just kiss her and grab her ass and just, ‘Mwah.’ It was like, ‘What took you so long?’”
