In the first verse Adam explains that he took some time out from his busy schedule to spend the day with what he considers his dream girl. But unfortunately, 24 hours are just not enough for him. So he asked this girl to spend the weekend with him and every night from following week together. He wants to spend as much time with her so they can get familiar with each other. Somehow the girl agrees to be part of this love madness and now Adam suggested that they’re forming a solid couple while spending time from sunup to sundown and having fun together. The singer also suggest that this is the right thing to do since the two of them seem to have the same appetite for fun.

No Amount of Time is Enough

In the second verse, Adam suggests he even surprised his love with a late night unannounced flight to see her just so they can spend another day together and enjoy each other’s company. In the pre-chorus and the chorus, the singer suggests that it was all worth it and that he lives to experience this type of feelings and moments with someone special next to him. To celebrate their get together the two lovers go out for some drinks and some fun when Adam starts spilling his feelings while realizing that he might be putting too much pressure on his partner. But in the end he asks her to take him home and to spend another night together to make things perfect.

From a Female’s Perspective

Cardi B takes verse three to let us know that she upgraded her social status a long time ago and that she now demands a lot of respect for what she does. In fact, she also wants to be treated equaly when it comes to her lover. This is why she demands him to get his act together since they’re past meeting her mom phase. From what she’s telling us, Cardi is okay with her lover’s exes since she knows she’s got way more to offer than any other girl out there. In the end of her verse, the rapper suggests that she wants a modern wedding where she and her lover spoil each other with fancy cars and jewelry and that she has really intense feelings every time he calls her. Feelings that sometimes make her do things that normally she wouldn’t do.
