According to Baptiste, the chunky cowboy guitar lick for "Rodeo" was introduced during that initial session. The song's chorus was the first part they completed, which was posted to social media before the rest of the song was finished.
"We did the chorus, and then he just uploaded the chorus to his Instagram," Denzel Baptiste recalled to Complex
. "We still didn't have the first verse done or the rest of the song done. But within two days, the video had, like, 3 million views on Twitter alone."
A solo version of the track was completed a month and a half later in New York City.
