Exclusive: Rae Sremmurd Star Talks Writing Beyonce’s ‘Formation’

TGJ Catches Up With Swae Lee At 2016 BET Awards

As one of the world’s most monumental mega-stars, Beyonce has mastered the art of not just making music – but making “moments.”

One of her most profound was unleashed this February in the form of ‘Formation.’

An unapologetic celebration of her Blackness (and that of millions the world over), the cut and its accompanying video drew both praise and critique. More than anything, it ignited much needed conversation – which perhaps is where it’s greatest success lay. [The song would go on to enjoy a #10 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 months later when released with the singer’s sixth album ‘Lemonade’].

That Grape Juice caught up with one of the song’s primary writers – Swae Lee from duo Rae Sremmurd – at the 2016 BET Awards and quizzed him on what it was like working with the Queen Bey on the track. 

See what he had to say above and peep the award-winning video for ‘Formation’ below…

Rae Sremmurd’s new single ‘Do Yoga is out now; as is their album ‘Sremm Life 2′ arrives August 12th.

As widely understood, the ‘Sorry’ songstress had to catch a flight immediately following her ‘Freedom’ rendition so as to make it in time for the UK launch of her ‘Formation World Tour.’

Mama Tina explained this when accepting two of her awards. Yet, it appears a small pocket of folk are taking her to task on the specifics.
