Frequent collaborator/associate Chance the Rapper contributes to the track, as do Rex Orange County, Daniel Caesar, Madison Ryann Ward, and YEBBA. “Forever Always” itself is a silky jam that slowly unfurls the multiple meanings of love over Cottontale’s alternating twinkling and smoky keys. “You’re my sing-a-long/ You’re the only song on my iPod/” he sings along with Rex. “You’re the only CD I keep in the whip (the whip)/ You’re my number one song on every playlist.”
