One Of The Producers Behind Drake U With Me Off VIEWS Speaks On The Song

One of the producers behind Drake‘s “U With Me?” song off his VIEWS album, DJ Dahi, spoke with Genius about how the track came together and how it was almost left off VIEWS.

Dahi explained that he sent the beat to Drizzy Drake‘s manager Oliver El-Khatib, who told the producer that Drizzy loved it and was going to use it. However, an unfinished version of the song leaked in the summer of 2014.

Things didn’t look good for the track then, but Noah “40” Shebib (who also has production credits on the song) called up DJ Dahi to ensure him that the finished version of “U With Me?” will still be appearing on VIEWS. You can read the interview after the jump below!

Noah 40 Shebib Discusses Producing For Drake & More With Native Instruments

Noah “40” Shebib recently sat down for an interview with Native Instruments all about producing, building his own studio in Toronto, creating the “underwater sound” with Drake, and more.

“It was just me and Drake wanting to do something different, and to make a sound that we felt like was unique. It really resonated with people. That’s also the co-production of Drake on that level, because he is a producer, by any means. He’s also responsible for that simplicity. He’s also responsible for a lot of the sound that I’m heralded as creating, but we created it together.”
