→ “WE TAKIN’ OVER” - DJ KHALED 

“Khaled hit me like ‘Yo I need a record!’ At the time he mentioned liking “Promiscuous Girl” so I wanted to make a hip-hop version of that record. In my mind it was about the tempo of “Promiscuous,” I just flipped it into a darker way. So Khaled comes in and gets excited he’s walking around saying ‘This is a hit!’ then runs out the studio and makes everyone listen to it. Khaled always gets me going! I always have in mind a record that I’ve done in the past that’s already a hit so I pretty much give DJs an alleyhoop. I don’t know if they realize that [laughs] You can easily go from “Promiscuous Girl” into “We Taking Over.”
