Kevin Garret is an amazing songwriter who co-wrote “Pray You Catch Me” on Beyoncé’s album Lemonade.
He came to me, played this song and I felt like it fit what we are doing on the album.
He’s super super dope…. Everyone was so proud, oh my god.
And we’ve been meaning to get to the studio and get something done, and so finally we have this song.
I’m Jamaican so it was like, Oh my god, perfect vibes. I’m also really in love with Afrobeats music.
I met Wizkid and we’ve wanted to work with each other for a long time, and I just felt like it was the right thing to get him on the song.
It was just the right vibe, you know, it’s Jamaica meets Africa, reggae meets Afrobeats.
They’re different but they have kind of the same sounds in a way.
In addition, Justin revealed her upcoming album which will drop by the first quarter of next year, 2017, is focused on lessons learnt from love.
“This album is mostly about me realizing things. I am more conscious about who I let into my heart and I’m singing about it,” she declared.
Expect to see the video to”U Don’t Know” pretty soon as the dark skinned singer reveled the video was being shot in LA with a Caribbean vibe to it as at the time of the interview with Billboard.com – we can’t wait.
