The Saints

Album: Heroes For Sale (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This party anthem features rappers KB and Trip Lee and samples the classic gospel hymn, "When the Saints Go Marching In." "I was backstage with Trip Lee and KB and I was working on my album and I said, 'Hey I want you guys to get on this song,'" Mineo recalled of enlisting his two pals for the horn-laced production. "The song is all about what the world should look like when the saints are there."
