TDE-producenten Sounwave avslöjar att stora namn slopades till “Black Panther”-albumet


“We even ended up scrapping great songs with big-name features”

 

 

Med förstaplatsen på Billboard 200 för andra veckan i rad, samt nya försjälningsrekord för filmen “Black Panther” kan man lugnt säga att både albumet och filmen är en succé. Med stora gästnamn som Future, Travis Scott och SZA är albumet redan späckat av storhet, men i en ny intervju med “Hits Daily Double” avslöjar TDE-producenten, som co-producerat i princip alla låtar på albumet, att ännu fler stora namn kunde varit med. Anledningen ska ha varit en tight deadline och att man ville följa filmens tema.

 

 

“We had to attack things differently from our usual album format because the story line was already created for us to follow, which allowed us to tap into elements we normally wouldn’t do. We were also on a very strict time limit, so all through the DAMN Tour, Kendrick and I would hop right offstage into the studio bus, creating different ideas from beats to hooks. We even ended up scrapping great songs with big-name features on them because we couldn’t clear things in time or they didn’t fit the overall concept, but it all worked out at the end.”

 

Sounwave berättar också att han och Kendrick var väldigt beslutsamma kring vilka de ville jobba med och var delvis inspirerade av sydafrikansk musik under inspelningsprocessen.

 

 

“There were a variety of reasons why each artist was picked. From Kendrick, Top Dawg and I already being fans of the artist to finding the right person to match the emotion we were looking for, and also a lot of studying different kinds of music. We were listening to a massive South African playlist for months, straight to where we became big fans of the sound and culture. And that was an important part, because we wanted to go inside their world to get an organic sound, sonically and emotionally.”
