The ominous sonic was crafted by Atlanta producer Nonstop Da Hitman (Yo Gotti's "Errbody," Cardi B's "Drip
") along with frequent Drake collaborator PARTYNEXTDOOR. Speaking in a Rolling Stone interview
, the songwriter/producer began working on Scorpion
in February 2018 and he asked Hitman to send him any beats he came up "before you give it to anybody else."
One submission was this instrumental idea, which the Atlanta producer came up with in his Atlanta home during a snowstorm. "It looked like I was in a cloud when I opened up my blinds," Hitman recalled. "It was real angelic, so I started playing around with that choir sample. Party wrote a song to it and gave it to Drake. He flipped his lid when he heard it."
