According to MTV News, Young Money president Mack Maine spilled the beans on the song saying that “they re-did it, it got mixed over the weekend, now it’s getting mastered,” as well as Rich Paul, who works with Lebron James, saying this (in the audio above):
“Forever” will appear on as part of a collection of tracks inspired by the film (due in theaters October 2), with the soundtrack coming on September 22 on Interscope Records. Polow Da Don will executive produce the set, which will also include songs by T.I., Mary J. Blige, and Young Jeezy.
“Forever” was initially supposed to be only Drake and Kanye:
“It was done, it was just Drake and Kanye, and then they went back and got two more prolific talents and it just made it even crazier, ” Paul told MTV News late Tuesday. “They blessed Drake crazy.”
The song came together when Gee Roberson, an executive at Atlantic Records who also manages West and helps to oversee the careers of Drake and Wayne, visited LeBron during the playoffs in May.
“He came over and played this — it was me, LeBron and Maverick [Carter, James’ manager],” said Paul, who will co-executive produce the project for James’ camp. “And he played the track, it was hot. It went right with the movie, it was like perfect for a moment that you want to be forever. And when he decided to put Wayne, Drake, Kanye and Eminem on it [together], it just makes is better. It’s one of those songs fans will really want to hear forever. It’s that type of feeling.”
Lil Wayne as long expressed a desire to rap alongside Eminem on a track — and now, he’s done it.
So to sum it all up, this will be the beat for the song:
But, Drake and Lil Wayne will have new verses along with two extra verses from Eminem and Kanye West.
Not long now 😛
