Lanez admitted to Apple Music
that he was initially unsure if "The Take" would make it onto Chixtape 5
. "You've got to remember how people feel about 'Take You Down' and how much of a lovemaking classic it is," he explained. "I wanted to make sure that I did something that was a little bit different, come with a different flow. I feel like the production on the second half is probably my favorite thing about the song."
