On the introspective introduction to his sophomore studio album, 21 Savage raps about having “a lot” of blessings and curses in his life. Savage also reflects on his tumultuous upbringing, his dangerous lifestyle, and the pain and loss he has suffered. Savage calls on J. Cole to assist him on the track. In his verse, Cole reflects on his career, comments on the state of the music industry, and offers advice to other artists and athletes. The song reached heightened popularity about a month after its release when Savage was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during ATL’s Super Bowl weekend. In the week leading up to his arrest, Savage unveiled an extended version of the track in which he criticizes the U.S.’s immigration policies on the country’s border with Mexico. There are multiple variations of this track. The album’s physical release contains a version of this song that completely excludes J. Cole, allotting 21 an additional verse. The version used in the song’s music video includes all verses featured in both the original and physical. “a lot” debuted at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the week of January 5, 2019, and peaked at #12 in the week of February 16, 2019. “a lot” samples “I Love You,” a 1971 song by American band East of Underground. “a lot” was certified 3x platinum by the RIAA on January 8, 2020 and won Best Rap Song at the 2020 GRAMMY Awards. The win marks Savage’s first award from the Recording Academy.
