When an artist achieves a certain level of success in hip-hop, high-profile collaborations almost always follow. But the way these co-signs come to life is usually murky.
Alabama's Yung Bleu, most known for his Drake-assisted smash, "You're Mines Still," recently detailed the unexpected series of events that helped him secure a verse from none other than Big Sean.
Chatting with the LA Leakers, Bleu recalled how Sean accidentally walked into his studio session in California. "Everybody I worked with on this project was real natural," he said. "Big Sean, he made the mistake of walking in the wrong studio session."
After saying, "What's up?" Sean suggested, "Let's get a record in." The result is a soothing, guitar-fueled track called "Way More Close," arriving on Bleu's upcoming debut album, 'Moon Boy,' set to arrive on July 23rd.
"I'm glad I accidentally walked in this b**** though to meet you, bro," Sean says in a clip from the unplanned session. "That was meant to happen."
Another one of Bleu's lead singles, the party-themed "Baddest" featuring Chris Brown and 2 Chainz, has tallied more than 8 million views on YouTube in just under a week!
