The multi-talented act, who recently signed a deal with Warner Music, made the reveal in an interview with Billboard, explaining the early moments of what was to become a trending hit song.
According to him:
IT KIND OF CAME ABOUT AS A TRAINING
SESSION ‘CUZ THERE’S A NEW PRODUCER
THAT I JUST SIGNED AND HAVE BEEN
MENTORING FOR A BIT. HIS NAME IS
MICHAEL. WE WERE IN THE STUDIO AND I
WAS TRYING TO PUT HIM ON ABLETON
LIVE, ‘COZ I USE ABLETON LIVE TO PRODUCE SONGS. HE STARTED MESSING
WITH THE GUITAR LOOP FOR “FINESSE,”
AND I THOUGHT, “OH. THAT SOUNDS GOOD.” I LEFT HIM IN THE STUDIO AND HE
KEPT MAKING THE BEAT. THEN, I CAME
BACK AND HE ALREADY HAD THE BEAT
DONE. I WAS LIKE, “THIS IS DOPE.” SO I
SAT DOWN WITH HIM AND STARTED
PLAYING WITH SOME MELODIES IN MY
HEAD AND THE MELODY [STARTS HUMMING] JUST CAME TO MY HEAD, AND
I DROPPED THAT AS THE MELODY. THEN, I
STARTED PUTTING IN LYRICS AND YEAH,
THAT’S HOW IT STARTED.
Not a lot of detail is given to how BNXN would later come on the song. But this in itself is a good Origin Story.
Big Shout out to Michael!
