Been That Way

  • Lyrics
  • This came from a beat that Timbaland gave to Tiller. The Trapsoul singer recalled to Billboard magazine: "He called me to come out there to Miami. I went out there to work with him and he gave me two beats for my project. One was 'Sorry Not Sorry' and the other one was 'Been That Way' and I recorded both of them in my hotel. I was going to record it at the Hit Factory, but I told Tim I don't really like recording in big studios, so he bought me a whole bunch of equipment to record in my hotel."
