According to the song's producer, Big Sean's diss-anthem was originally meant for Justin Bieber.
It appears that Big Sean’s infectious club banger, "IDFWU", was originally intended for the hands of another pop artist.
"Originally I think Justin Bieber was supposed to have it; he had posted a video of a snippet and everything, where it was him doing the song. They ended up not taking it and Big Sean got the song, and I’m glad, because we ended up getting a really strong record for hip-hop."
Bieber even titled the track “Turn Up”, and shared a preview of his version of the DJ Mustard-produced banger, which you can check out below. Good thing fate worked its magic, because apparently we were awfully close to never hearing Big Sean’s diss-anthem.
ICYMI: "IDFWU" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America earlier this month boi.
