Lyrically, the song expresses a simple stroll through life, keeping it real, simple yet nice at the same time, just like beans and rice. With this track, J.Lately does what he does best; bringing relatable perspectives to fans in which Lately simultaneously has listeners contemplating life and vibing out.
