Juicy J has guest features on two of the hottest club bangers right now: Usher‘s “I Don’t Mind” and Ne-Yo‘s “She Knows.”
While attending the Grammys, the rapper revealed to Billboard that Dr. Luke co-produced those hits with Juicy’s voice in mind.
“For the Usher record, Luke was trying to get me on it, but I was on tour,” Juicy recalls. “I was trying to go to a big studio to do it, but he was like, ‘You did ‘Bandz a Make Her Dance’ in a hotel room, right?’ I was like, ‘Yeah — I did it in a closet.’ So I went to a hotel room and recorded it on a cheap-ass $200 mic.”
Juicy adds, “Usher loved it, but later on, I went to a studio and redid it.”
Usher’s “I Don’t Mind” currently sits atop the Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
