A few months ago, ILoveMakonnen revealed how this dream collaboration came to be.
“We were talking about all of the artists that influenced us and who would be our dream artists to work with,” ILoveMakonnen explains. “He mentioned Fall Out Boy, and after Lil Peep passed, Pete Wentz reached out to me and sent his condolences.”
After Fall Out Boy asked if there was anything they could do, ILoveMakonnen didn’t pass up the opportunity.
“I was like, ‘Oh well, I would be honored if you guys could check out this track,” ILoveMakonnen says. “Lil Peep and I were both really big fans, and he’s been quoted in interviews saying that his style is like ILoveMakonnen and Fall Out Boy, so it would be really great if you guys could take a look at this and maybe do something for it.’ They loved the track, and they added some great elements to it. We made it into a very special record, and I think Lil Peep would definitely be proud of what we turned it into.”
