Frequent Drake collaborator and musical genius Chilly Gonzales breaks down the music theory behind some of the biggest hits in his "Pop Music Masterclass" series. The most recent episode focuses in on iLOVEMAKONNEN's inimitable hit "Tuesday," where Gonzales breaks down each chord, even taking it to the organ to master the Metro Boomin beat, to explain why the track is so catchy.

Gonzales previously worked on Drake's Nothing Was The Same and perfected the track "From Time" featuring Jhené Aiko. The two collaborated on Take Care and his song "The Tourist" was used on the "Outro" of So Far Gone. Watch him break down the hit above.
