Tyler, The Creator Says He Originally Wrote “See You Again” for Zayn Malik
Tyler, The Creator's latest album, Flower Boy is filled with gems, including the track, "See You Again," which is starting to pick up traction on the radio. According to the Odd Future co-founder, that particular song was initially meant for another artist, Zayn Malik.
Wolf hopped on Twitter yesterday (Sept. 16) and revealed the backstory on the track. "'See you again' is getting played on a few stations, awesome, hope i catch it at some point," he started. "Fun fact: i wrote 'see you again' for zayn but that bitch flaked on studio time twice, so i kept the ref for myself, worked out actually."
This isn't the first time, Tyler has offered some inside info on the album. Last month, he claimed ScHoolboy Q passed on the beat for "Who Dat Boy."
After Q implied that he wasn't put on Tyler's track for fear that he would body his fellow rhymers, Tyler responded, “YOU FAT LYING BITCH I MADE THAT BEAT SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU AND YOU SAID ‘EHH, NAH’ SO I KEPT IT YOU DIRTY NIGGA.”
Tyler will be heading out on an 18-city tour starting on Halloween, in promotion of the new album. It will see him touch down in cities like San Francisco, Denver, New York, New Orleans, Houston and Dallas.
