40 Of Noah “40” Shebib’s Best Beats

“Successful” Drake Featuring Trey Songz & Lil Wayne
Drake’s aspirational track with Trey Songz had a woozy beat – compliments of Shebib. He accented it with some hi-hats to really accentuate the emotions…and we know Drake has plenty of those.

“Un-Thinkable” Alicia Keys
An uncredited Drake is on the ad-libs and background vocals for the song, so naturally 40 gets in on the action by concocting the seductive beat. Who wouldn’t be “ready” after that instrumental?

“No New Friends” DJ Khaled Featuring Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne
Vibrating synths that hug Drake’s important message about friendship? Yes, please. OVO doesn’t play when it comes to their people, and maybe they have “No New Friends,” but 40 brought an all new beat.

“Fuckin’ Problems” A$AP Rocky Featuring Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar
The moaning “Ohs,” the rigorous feedback inducing basslines, the ‘80s chimes. All of that was piled together to make A$AP Rocky & Co.’s nymphomaniac’s anthem. They love a bad beat just as much as a bad b**ch. Shouts to C. Papi on the beat’s assist.

“The Moon And the Sky (Remix)” Sade Featuring Jay Z
Somehow, someway, 40 reinvented Sade’s single with “ain’t gon’ let you go” chanting ad-libs and a beat that literally is the sonic embodiment of the moon and the sky. It was updated with enough Hip-Hop flavor for Jay Z to comfortably ride the beat in his cameo.
