2 Chainz spoke his newly released single "Birthday Song," featuring Kanye West today in an press call with HNHH. He says he's bringing that "club energy" and "feel good energy."
2 ChainzÂ says "Birthday Song" isÂ like a continuation of his past singles, energy-wise.
"Basically 'Birthday Song' is aÂ continuation ofÂ what I didÂ with 'Spend it,' what IÂ did with 'NoÂ Lie.'Â Bringing that kinda club energy, that feel good energy when it comes on. And hopefully gettin' it to transcend to radio... But for the most part its a collaboration between me and 'Ye, and IÂ think its got the best of both worlds on there." He continued, "It was produced by Sonny Digital and Kanye West. I'mÂ excited about the record. At midnight we gunna release the dirty version... I'm in my own lane im not really thinkin' about anybody,Â im in my own lane grindin' it out."
He also spoke on his much-talked about artwork, and working with Yeezy's DONDA team.
"Well basically I've been sitting down with DONDA, which is Kanye's team and all that. I've just been having my ideas trhown up against theirs."Â
He remained tight-lipped about his album, "IÂ havent released a lot of information about my album except that it's good. im still considering droppin' another song but i just dont wanna get in my own way sometimes. I'm just being very calculated and IÂ feel like this is the next big song, 'Birthday Song'Â is the next big joint."Â
However, he did confirm some producers: "IÂ can tell you im holding it down for the A," 2 Chainz said before listing producers:Â Drumma Boy, Southside, Mike Will, and Sonny Digital will all be featured on Based On A T.R.U. Story.
As for features, he didn't tell us anything we don't already know: "Drake, Kanye West, and the rest I'm kinda gunna keep secret...me and Nicki cookin'Â again, it's some refreshing sounds about to come to you startingÂ today."
Based On A T.R.U. Story is dropping August 14th!
