“Way 2 Sexy” featuring Young Thug and Future has become the early commercial standout track on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album. This prompted the song’s co-producer TM88 to sit down with Rolling Stone and explain how he crafted the No. 1 song in the country, his first time achieving the feat.
TM88 explained he was working with producer Too Dope when they came up with the concept for the instrumental. Once the beat was completed, they handed it over to Future, with no idea Drake would ever hear it.
“On this particular day we happened to make, I think, about 12 beats. We were using a lot of the same drums, so I was like, ‘The next beat, let’s try a new drum. Let’s try something else.’ And it ended up being the ‘Way 2 Sexy’ beat,” he said. “We tried these new drums from this kit we got, and man, it was going so crazy. I had to give it to Future. … And Drake getting on the song, you see what it did. It’s on one of his most anticipated projects, and it’s going crazy, spreading like wildfire. It just happened to be the single, which shocked me as well.”
