Quavo recorded his verse within five minutes of hearing the beat. Khaled recalled to Billboard
"I hit Quavo up, like 'Yo I got this record, I'm telling you it's gonna be big. I need you on it.' He's like, 'Khaled whatever you need I got you.'
So we went into the studio, and we actually recorded in the studio where Michael Jackson recorded 'Thriller
'… So Quavo and the whole Migos came through. I played [the beat] for Quavo and he was like, 'This is crazy.' The man really took five minutes. Five minutes listening to the beat, and then he went into the booth and just knocked the verse out."
