Dupri told Billboard
magazine that he's been following Weezer's career since the '90s. "I wrote the song 'Can't Stop Partying' one night, and in my mind, I had always been a big Weezer fan, from the 'Buddy Holly
' song they did with that video and Happy Days
," he said. "The things Rivers was saying in that record caught me - 'What's with these homies dissing my girl' - he was talking my type of language on a rock record. It was something that always stayed with me."Dupri added: "I was in the studio one night and I was on my wild s--t, like, 'I can't stop partying' - that's exactly how I felt that night. Like, 'This is my life. This is what's going on.' So, I recorded myself playing the drums and singing, freestyling, and then I had my engineer put some guitar licks on there. I immediately got into it and I asked someone to get it to Weezer."
