One half of the chart-topping duo Rae Sremmurd, Swae Lee came through to the Power 106 studios to chop it up with Nick Cannon about his latest singles “Won’t Be Late” featuring Drake, his upcoming tour with Post Malone, his music chemistry with his brother Slim Jxmmi, and much more.
Speaking on his newest roll out for his forthcoming project, Lee shared with Nick how his Drake-featured track came to be saying, “We was just chilling in the room with the microphone out. You know, we had a microphone set up, engineer in there, and we just singing in the microphone. Literally, not even like a big studio, like a room, we’re just singing into the microphone. Harmonizing, dropping melodies.”
While the new song serves as some of the first tracks to what Lee is expecting to drop, the “Sunflower” rapper goes on to share why he chose to release “Won’t Be Late” at the end of the hot boy and hot girl summer.
Those songs just felt like so “now”. You know, we wanted to end the summer off. With me and Drake, we talked about it. We were like, we gonna put a cap on the summer and just end the summer off, you know what I’m saying? Give them something to vibe with to the end of summer. And, the other song was produced by me and Mike WiLL. It was such a recent, like, I just did it within the past two months. It was a crazy new sound, it sounded like Sade on the track-beat. We was like, ‘Yo, we gotta put this sh*t out.’
Swae Lee also goes through a round of the “Firing Squad” where the rapper reveals his past jobs at McDonald’s and Olive Garden, shares the troubles he’s going through with his pet monkey, and reveals his top five artist list.
