Yaweh had also shared some behind-the-scenes footage of the duo recording the track in Los Angeles and Washington DC.

You can check out Tyla Yaweh's new banger here below.
The song title comes from a lyric in the braggadocios ballad where Malone boasts, "Pull up with the drum like I'm Tommy Lee / Yaweh got the stick, came to rock with me." This alludes to the legendary rock drummer Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe fame, who was no stranger to the lavish celebrity lifestyle. The lyrics also emphasize how good Yaweh and Malone have made their lives, stating, "I'm livin' life like a rockstar, pullin' up, stretch limousine / Look at me, that cost a fee, the double C's all on my feet."
Speaking about the new track, Yaweh revealed that it was about "living life and spreading positive energy". When asked about the song being named after the infamous Mötley Crüe drummer, he explained, "Tommy Lee just doesn’t give a f*** and I love that." He had also previously paid tribute to his mentor Malone at the 2019 Reading Festival, saying, "I watch and I learn. He's just always there for me and hands-on with all this stuff."
Already fans are pouring praise on the talented duo's latest effort, with one saying, "Saw these guys in concert, best one I've ever been to. Also, this song is fire." Another listener concurred, "GOD DAMN THIS IS GOOD." Another declared, "THIS IS INCREDIBLE." One ardent supporter said, "At least there's something good that's coming out of quarantine... YAS POSTY AND TYLA!!!" Many fans also predicted the song was going to "blow up" and "about to go viral".
