Drop Girl

Album: Everythang's Corrupt (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This summery hip-hop anthem features 2 Chainz and former LMFAO member RedFoo. Cube told MTV UK in July 2014 that the cut was a long time coming. "I ran into 2 Chainz a couple of years ago and we admired what each other was doing and RedFoo I've known since he first started," he said. "His mother [video director and writer Nancy Leiviska] has been working with me for a long time, so it's been real cool because we waited till the perfect time, when we had the perfect song."
  • The song's music video was directed by Will Kendrick. "Will is very creative, especially from working in children's television, and I wanted the song to be fun," Cube said "I mean, it's got RedFoo in it, it can't be too heavy!"
