It’s the second recent outing for Scott and Young Thug after they teamed up with Migos recently for the new track ‘Give No Fxk’.

Scott and Migos debuted the track live at the former’s Astroworld festival in Houston, Texas back in November but released the song on February 14 alongside a special effects-heavy video.

During an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Parker says his collaboration with Scott took him out of his comfort zone and had a great impact on his creative process for the new album.

Speaking of working with Scott, Parker told Lowe: “It was awesome. He’s so enthused by ideas. If he has an idea or if someone has an idea, he’s into it, he’d just go for it. He doesn’t waste time kind of doubting himself or doubting things. Which is extremely valuable, because you need that burst of conviction.

“Conviction is the word. I tried to take on some of that conviction when I’m working, because doubt and all that kind of stuff is poisonous in creativity.”
