This Is Where Pierre Bourne’s Producer Tag Comes From
Pierre Bourne is making huge waves for his production work with Playboi Carti, and their "Magnolia" track is quickly becoming one of the hottest songs out. The track has become even more popularized by Pierre's producer tag at the start of the song: "Yo, Pierre, you wanna come out here?" in reference to Bourne.
The line is reminiscent of Metro Boomin's "If young Metro don't trust you, I'm gon' shoot you" tag on a slew of his songs, but this particular line of Bourne actually comes from a familiar place. The quote samples an episode of The Jamie Foxx Show where Foxx is waiting a table for a blind man at the hotel's restaurant, and calls out for a fake French chef to speak to him.
The sampled line has become a go-to tag for Bourne, as it's also been used on Playboi Carti's “dothatshit!,” UnoTheActivist’s “#FREESMOKE,” and Trippie Redd’s “No Way" records. We can definitely expect to hear the tag pretty often this summer, as the song has already become a go-to on party playlists, including the red carpet of the 2017 Met Gala this past week (May 1), where Jaden Smith and Diane von Furstenberg were even caught dancing to it. Carti even came out at the recent Travi$ Scott concert in NYC this week to perform "Magnolia" for fans.
Last night, Tory Lanez dropped his own version of "Magnolia," but before releasing it, he apparently reached out to Pierre to get the original instrumental. The producer balked, and Tory went ahead with a remake, prompting Bourne to call him out on social media.
