Alex and Famo put the ladies on notice with clever bars, a catchy and inviting hook, and the kind of carnal innuendos that’ll most definitely pique your interests.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, they told Global Grind: “For ‘Focus,’ we wanted to blend nostalgic ’90s melodies with a modern bop and classic raps that speak to the ladies.

We wanted women to feel like they had a man who knew what to do with her, without her having to give instructions.” *Lawd, Jesus… Hallelujah!*
For those who aren’t up on DaCompany, the New York City duo is hands-on behind the scenes as well. Both Howard University graduates, Alex and Famo boast production credits in TV and Film for platforms such as TVOne, BET, MTV, Mass Appeal… the list goes on. After dropping their debut album A Little Taste of Success and fan favorite single “Andale,” fans have come to respect the pair and their intentional representation of love, truth, and entrepreneurship within their music and song lyrics.
