Songfacts®:

  • The credits for We The Best Forever state this tune was produced by THE TEAM. According to Khaled they comprise his engineer plus his mix engineer, Lu Diaz.
  • The song features Akon and B.o.B. Khaled explained their input to Billboard magazine: "When I heard the track, I felt like I needed to put Akon on there. Akon and I have always made great records. I felt like it ["The Life"] needed to be one of them records where it talks about the struggle, the life. Akon does that well with the tone of his voice. I wanted to put B.o.B because I felt like the track was calling for his vocals with the guitars. And [with] think the topic, it made sense. I've been following B.o.B and I respect his story. A lot of people slept on him when he first came out and he showed them. [He] became one of the biggest selling artists had number one records and touched different genres, so I had to respect him. I think it's a great record that all type of people can like - hip-hop, rock & roll people. Everybody will like it."
