Drake White says he wrote his latest single, “Makin’ Me Look Good Again,” about his wife Alex, but it was Alex’s dad who first planted the idea for the song in his brain.
“The reason it’s called ‘Makin’ Me Look Good Again’ is because I walked out of her mom and dad’s house with her on my arm one day, and I forgot where we were going – it was just out to eat or something – and he goes, ‘Man, she makes you look good,'” Drake recalls in a statement from his label.
“And then that’s where the title [came from], and I sat there and spoke it into my phone. I said, ‘There you go baby, makin’ me look good again.’ And within a year, I’d written it with the co-writers.”
