Enzo

Album: Carte Blanche (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • This hip-hop/EDM crossover finds DJ Snake stepping into the world of trap music. The song features verses by Migos rapper Offset, 21 Savage, and Gucci Mane. Sheck Wes contributes the chorus. The haunting and smooth beat is handled by Sickdrumz, YungLunchBox, and DJ Snake himself.
  • The track is an ode to luxury cars and finds the rappers boasting about their collection of expensive vehicles. It is named after Enzo Ferrari who founded the Italian luxury sports car company in 1939.
  • Speaking to Beats 1's Zane Lowe about the song, DJ Snake explained that it started back in 2017, before Sheck Wes scored a breakout hit with "Mo Bamba." The producer reached out to Wes based on his work on the rapper's Live Sheck Wes video. The other three artists came through in the following months.
  • The song takes DJ Snake back to his hip-hop roots. He previously linked up with Lil Jon on 2013's "Turn Down For What," which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
