Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Harlow said they recorded “Way Out” the first day they met at Sean’s crib and described him as one of the nicest rappers he’s ever met.
“It was the first day we met,” he said. “He invited me in the house and I think they the barrier that you could have just was broke down immediately. He’s one of those down-to-earth cats. We just started talking about life. He was giving me gems. He’s been in the game for so long now. He’s experienced it.”
Harlow continued, “He knows what it’s like. So he was giving me a game bro, and just saluting me. And honestly, probably one of the nicest rappers I’ve ever met, if not the nicest.”
The 22-year-old is ready to make the quantum leap to stardom on the heels of “WHATS POPPIN.” As for the album, he’s remained tight-lipped about potential features but promised some big names to appear on the LP.
“I tried not to have any songs identical to one another,” he said of his approach to the project. “I didn’t want two of a kind of anything. So I really showed a lot of range on here. I worked with a lot of producers. There’s a lot of flavors, but more than anything, I do believe this album is timeless. And I think it will timestamp this moment. And people are going to remember this album and live with it for years to come.”
Based on Spotify’s year-end stats, the Grammy-nominated rapper saw his streams increase nearly 17x from around 50 million in 2019 to over 843 million in 2020.
