  • This features Senegalese-American singer-songwriter Akon on the chorus. "I was listening to the vibe and thinking about, 'Who could sing this record and still keep the energy that was on it from my dude Verse Simmonds, who ended up writing the hook?'" Kid Ink explained to MTV News. "It was literally a situation where I made the suggestion, a call got made, an hour later he got the record, and a day later I had it back. It was kind of a movie. I didn't expect it to come back that perfect and fast."
