Many women that have been involved with Jacob have a yearning to “advertise” and make public a relationship that he chooses to keeps private due to celebrity status.
“I know you want to tell all your friends about me, but you don’t wanna say too much because you know that’s gonna mess us up.”

The song contains a west coast slap sound and can work in a club vibe.
“Mutual” is one of the stronger tracks off the album, a song many may be able to relate too.
