The official single cover for “Sweat”
Bow Wow dropped his new single just over a week ago from his upcoming Underrated album, which will be released on December 6th, but we now have the official mastered CDQ version of “Sweat” featuring Lil Wayne that was produced by Detail. The music video should be dropping in the next couple of weeks and you can stream/download the single below, courtesy of HHNM!
Check out the lyrics to the track here and hit the jump to watch some footage of producer Detail speaking about how this collabo nearly didn’t happen, because Bow and Weezy already have a record together.
“Obviously everybody knows I got a very diverse sound — I can do pop, I can do rock, I can do hip-hop, R&B,” the very confident “How to Love” beatmaker told Mixtape Daily. “For me it’s just a matter of studying the artist and kinda coming up with a formula that’s more natural for them.”
“At Lil Wayne’s Carter IV release party, I was talking to Maine about the ‘Sweat’ record. He hadn’t even heard it. He was like, ‘Wayne already got a record with Bow Wow,’ ” Detail recalled of his and Mack’s conversation.
Given Detail’s track record for crafting hit singles with Young Money, Mack agreed to listen to the beat, which the producer sent him right away. “He hit me back and said, ‘Damn that bitch is a beast,’ ” Detail said. “So when he said that, I knew off the top that this motherfucker gonna go.”
