“Unusual” – Trey Songz featuring Drake

“I was in the studio with my father back in Philadelphia. He was in there with his string section and his horn section. He was banging out all of these crazy pieces of music for me to sample and fuck with. I chopped up some of the stuff he was working on and started doing the drums. I immediately thought it would be something for Kanye. Oak walked in the studio fresh off of a flight. I was like “This is crazy.” Oak then did his shit on it. That was the best seeing that beat made. You had my father, Oak and me. We had guitar, drums, 16-piece strings, horns, an organ player – we were just rolling. We were Phil Spector in that bitch that day. Real talk. It was just crazy. In my mind this beat was perfect for Kanye. I’m thinking Kanye was going to love this beat. I get a call about a week later from Atlantic Record’s Mike Caren. Until this day, I still don’t know how he even got the beat. He tells me he has a smash for Trey Songz. I asked to what beat and he played me that beat. I asked if he was sure, because to me, that beat was such a rap beat. I then heard Trey on it and was like ‘Oh, okay. We got something here.’”
