This is a track from Because The Internet, the second album released by Childish Gambino. The actor/rapper explained to NME how a conversation between his musician friend Beck and himself inspired its title. "Beck told me that rappers would always tell him how much they liked him," said Gambino. "He asked me whether it was still like that, and I found myself going, 'Because of the internet...' He joked, 'You should name your album that.' It made sense – you can start every sentence like that now."
Gambino produced the song with the help of Drake's "Pound Cake" production duo Christian Rich, who are the twin brothers Taiwo "Christian" Hassan and Kehinde "Rich" Hassan.
The song features backing vocals from Mystikal. The New Orleans rapper clocked up several hits around the turn of the century including "Danger (Been So Long)", which topped Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in June 2001.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
