She also echoed this statement in a new interview with Zane Lowe for ‘Beats 1.’ In that interview she revealed that she and The Neptunes recorded the track while Khaled was at the Super Bowl earlier this year. The ‘All The Stars’ singer goes on to reveal that a number of other songs were recorded during that session.
Speaking on the experience, she said:
“I can’t really wrap my head around the experience and I think more so I’m fangirling off of having a track produced by probably the most formative producers and artists for me when I was growing up. I just cannot f***ing believe that because it’s my childhood dream and I can’t believe that I made things I that f**k with, with someone that really changed my life.”
SZA and Khaled previously worked together on the track ‘Just Us’ in 2019 from his ‘Father of Asahd’ album.
