It was Metro Boomin's manager Cash who suggested recording a new version of "I Don't Wanna Know" with The Weeknd. Winans' hit song is based on a sample of the Fugees' 1996 single "Ready Or Not
," which itself samples the synthesizer riff from Irish new age singer Enya's 1987 instrumental track "Boadicea." "Creepin" starts with the same Fugees sample. The Weeknd then interpolates "I Don't Wanna Know" during his verses and chorus. Savage's verse replaces Puff Daddy's from the original version.
