The song, which was created for a Target commercial, was an interesting and unlikely remake, considering Jepsen’s strong pop sensibilities and Yachty’s admitted disinterest in old-school rap; however, the song isn’t a complete fail, thanks in large part to Mike Will Made-It. The famed producer didn’t stray too far from the platinum single’s original beat, which sampled Lyn Collins' 1972 song "Think (About It)." The remake is catchy, energetic, and exactly what you would expect in a Target ad.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jepsen dished about the recording process, insisting she was intimidated by the project.
“You get some strange pitches in your lifetime, and this was definitely one of them,” she said. “I got a late-night phone call from my A&R person, who was like, ‘We’re missing one verse, and they’re wondering if you wouldn’t mind writing a rap and coming in and recording it tonight?’ I was like, ‘Uh, you guys realize I don’t rap, right? That sounds crazy.’ It was one of the most intimidating moments of my career being in the room with Mike Will and Yachty and 16 other friends of theirs just partying. They’re like, ‘Alright, go perform your first-ever rap in front of actual professional rappers! There’s nothing more terrifying than that.”
