Game On

Songfacts®:

  • Waka Flocka Flame recorded this song for the Adam Sandler-starring sci-fi comedy film Pixels' official soundtrack. The rapper told Artist Direct: "For me, being an Adam Sandler fan, a video game fan, and a fan of the culture of rockstarism, if that's even a word, it was awesome. I'm a f--king game geek, bro. Just for me to be a part of a movie that's for video games, that s--t was an accomplishment, plus it was challenging because I didn't even think I could rap on that beat. I killed that s--t, so I pat myself on the back for that [Laughs]."
  • The song finds Waka hooking up with pop punk group Good Charlotte. The collaboration was done over the internet.
  • This was the first song recorded by Good Charlotte following a nearly four year hiatus.
