Composition and samples
“In My Feelings” is a bounce track, similar to Drake’s previous single “Nice for What”. Upon its release, several outlets reported that the song was about Keshia Chanté, Drake’s first girlfriend and childhood friend. Drake also makes references to Jennifer Lopez (“Jenny”), who he briefly dated in 2016, and Quality Control duo City Girls, made up of members Yung Miami (“Resha”) and JT. The City Girls also provide new additional vocals for the track. The track samples “Smoking Gun (Acapella Version)” by Magnolia Shorty for the breakdown. “Lollipop” by Lil Wayne is also sampled and the track ends with audio from the episode “Champagne Papi” from the television series Atlanta. The song was later slightly altered and re-uploaded to streaming sites with additional sampled vocals from Lil Wayne.
