While we weren’t expecting for Weezy’s new single to drop on Saturday night, the record has been getting a lot of love from fans. Though, we also hear arguments that it’s redundant. Personally, I think Drizzy adding a real verse would have killed it, but we’ll see if there’s a remix to come. Over the weekend, Complex talked to producer Mike Will about how the record came together. He says it was actually a joint he was working on with Khaled, but ended up giving to to Weezy with Future and Drake already on it.
“It’s the feeling of the beat. I can’t really explain my ear, but my ear is ill. What you’ve got to understand about production is the voice is an instrument. I only bring certain beats to certain artists. I felt like that would be the one because Future would sound crazy on it and I knew Drake would sound crazy on it. I was like, ‘This is the one.’ Me and Future were over there doing what we do and he was letting me hear different melodies. I’m like, ‘Yo, that melody is crazy. It’s like the Mockingbird melody. That shit can get stuck in people’s head.’
“I took that, and I was like, ‘Drake, come listen to this right quick.’ Drake came over there, he was listening to what Future was saying and he was like, ‘Yeah man, you should come back, and after that, you should say this.’ I was like, ‘No, Future, you say what you were saying. Drake, you go in there and say it how you feel.’ And then that will be the hook.”
