Steff channels her American counterparts’ confidence and sass on the song’s first verse. She spends more time praising herself than her buddies, but reminds you that she’s willing to fight for them: “Ain’t a stripper but I really put it down on the pole/Plus I get dizzy in the kitchen, flick my wrist on the stove/That’s my best friend/Touch her and you’re gonna need your friend dem.” Don has a slate of collaborations under her belt with the likes of Mariah Carey, Halsey, Lil Yachty, and more.
The remix finds Saweetie and Doja’s chorus recycled, but only includes Saweetie’s original verse and outro. Saweetie spent much of the last year prepping and promoting her debut LP Pretty Bitch Music, still unreleased. Shortly after “Best Friend” was officially released, Doja Cat appeared on the remix to Ariana Grande’s “34+34” with Megan Thee Stallion.
