After Doja Cat played The Weeknd the original solo version of “You Right”, she stated that he became “obsessed” with the song and replaced one of the solo verses with The Weeknd’s own. In the extended version of the song, Doja Cat’s original second verse made its way back into the song. Speaking to E!

“…he was obsessed with it and that’s kind of all I wanted was a very good reaction […] It’s a beautiful, beautiful song.”
