The Middle Eastern influenced beat for this song was supplied by Hit-Boy. It's one of several tracks that he did for Matangi
, though only three made the final tracklisting (the other two were "Boom Skit
" and "Sexodus
"). The producer is most famous for his work on "Niggas in Paris
" by Jay-Z and Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle
," but he was enthusiastic about the tracks he produced for M.I.A. "I just did seven songs on her new album," he told CBS. "We just locked in the studio and just vibed and we did seven incredible records."
He added: "She's just like really creative. She's doing exactly what comes to her. That's why we were able to crank out that many songs."
