Cole handled the majority of the production on KOD
, with the exception of this track, which was produced by T-Minus, who is also known for his work with Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar and guitarist Mark Pellizzer of MAGIC!
"When I first started 'Kevin's Heart,' I linked up with this guy Mark Pelli. He's a great friend of mine and an incredible guitarist," T-Minus told Genius
. "The moment I heard that, I just knew that was something special."
TT-Minus then added sprinkling effects to Pelli's guitar sound, to give it a different vibe. "I added this effect called Retro Color which I use a lot," he said. "It gives you that vintage feel," he explains. "It doesn't really sound like a guitar. It kinda sounds like a synthetic feel. I just always try to elevate the track to next level, and make the sound interesting."
The beat also features a sample of Janet Jackson's 1993 slow-paced romp "Any Time, Any Place."
