With lyrics like, “Hey you / You know we got them bottles coming through / Bring your girls with ya, but leave your dude / And you know we got the hookah lit, too,” Rotimi sets the scene for a night of carefree revelry. The track features a fusion of Afrobeats stylings and a vocal sample from The Fugees’ “Killing Me Softly With His Song.”
“Bestie” marks Rotimi’s first solo release of the year and follows his previous hit, “I Do,” which was featured on both the standard and deluxe versions of his debut album, All or Nothing, released in 2021.
On the Billboard charts, “I Do” achieved significant success, reaching No. 8 on the Adult R&B Airplay chart, marking Rotimi’s first top 10 hit on that chart. It also climbed to No. 34 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
In addition to “I Do,” All or Nothing included standout tracks like “Decide,” “What To Do,” and “Love Somebody.” The deluxe version of the album featured collaborations with rappers Ludacris and Busta Rhymes, along with five bonus tracks.
