MGK explains the story behind the making of the song "Invincible," which he was against doing at first.
He reveals during the interview that he originally hated the song, since it was brought to him by "corporateÂ America," and he deemed it a "cookie cutter track," comparing it toÂ "Airplanes"Â byÂ B.o.B.Â
"I donât operate like that," he said on making "Invincible," "You werenât there making the song with each other in the studio. It was presented to you. I write all my hooksâ¦So when I got this hook I was offended. You guys think Iâm a cookie cutter artist. I donât work like that. And Iâve never talked to Ester Dean in my life. Iâve never talked to the producer whoâs Alex Da Kid who makes those cookie cutter records."
Eventually he was asked to record a second verse, and after that he assumed it was over with.Â KellyÂ said he didn't want anything to do with the song and would not make a video for it. Months later though, he was asked by the producer, Alex Da Kid,Â to re-record his verse, because the producerÂ hated the first one. Although MGK wasÂ angry at firstÂ and stormed out of the studio, when he realized people were getting fired over it, and he thought about his friends and kids,Â he had a change of heart.
"You have to do this. You have, have to, have to, have to.Â Like people are getting fired. And people really were getting fired over it," MGKÂ explained. "Cause theyâre like, âYou canât make this petty new artist on our label go do a song? And this is the boss asking for it."
Kelly saidÂ of re-doing the second verse,Â "I took all my anger out in that second verse, if you listen to that second verse that's one of the best verses I've heard in my life."
