Marching Band

Album: The Buffet (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Kelly singing about how the noise he and his girl make is as loud as a marching band. Leaving little to the imagination, the Chicago native boasts on the organ-heavy sex ode that she'll "blow me like a tuba." Kelly co-produced the track with Dr. Luke, Cirkut, A.C, and JMIKE.
  • Juicy J joins Kelly's band, contributing a R-rated verse that continues the marching band theme. Wale also recorded a verse, which was unceremoniously removed.

    The Washington D.C, rapper blamed Dr. Luke for dumping him from the song, tweeting: "Hey @TheDoctorLuke thanks for taking me off that Rkelly song.. I guess I'm not good enough to be on your record. I'll keep trying."
