Before performing IGOR's Playboi Carti-assisted highlight, "Earfquake," Tyler revealed that the song was written back in May 2017. But he didn't initially write it for himself; he wrote it for Justin Bieber. According to Tyler, Bieber "didn't take it," so the Creator tried to get Rihanna to sing the hook. He "didn't hear back" from Rihanna, so he ended up using it for his own album.
