Fans have anticipated the song’s release since Mike Will Made-It, who served as its producer, teased the track with a preview on Twitter in June.
In the days leading up to its release, the group’s two members—Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi—both teased “Perplexing Pegasus” on social media.

Swae Lee is an artist in more ways than one—he hand-painted the cover art.
This is the first new track from the collective since they dropped SremmLife 2 in 2016. Rae Sremmurd have performed “Perplexing Pegasus” during the group’s 2017 tour, which is currently in Finland.
