A strong contender for song of the summer, DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” features Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and Quavo of Migos. In a new interview with Billboard which you can check out below, DJ Khaled breaks down how he assembled his star-studded team for the track that reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
According to DJ Khaled, Quavo stepped into the studio and laid down his verse a mere five minutes after listening to the instrumentals. He also FaceTimed Justin Bieber to get him involved in the track, proceeding to head over to Bieber’s house for a spin in his decked-out truck complete with fur and a killer sound system.
