Quavo and Pharrell Made “Apes*!t” and “Stir Fry” in Just an Hour
Some days you're just feeling it. That's the impression Quavo left when he spoke on the creation of Migos' "Stir Fry" and Jay-Z and Beyonce's Everything Is Love track, "Apeshit," which only took he and Pharrell one hour to create. You read that right.
Speaking with the folks at Billboard, the Migos rapper revealed that both songs were concocted on the same day within just one hour's time.
"I was in the lab with Pharrell. I actually made 'Apeshit' and 'Stir Fry' in the same day and hour. I made 'Stir Fry' first, then right after that he pulled up another beat and we made 'Apeshit.' I left both records and he sent me 'Stir Fry.' I told him I was going to use that for the album. I totally forgot about 'Apeshit'—I just forgot about it. I knew he was going to do something with it and then he called me one day saying, 'It's out of here" and it definitely was."
Rapid-fire song creation is nothing new in hip-hop, but when you consider the high-profile nature of both these tunes, "Stir Fry" and "Apeshit," Quavo's feat becomes that much more impressive. "Stir Fry" was the second official single for Migos' platinum-selling Culture II album. "Apeshit" was Hov and the Queen Bey's first single as their newly established duo, The Carters. The video, which saw the pair hit up Paris' Louvre museum, was pretty sick, too.
With his songwriting being so on point, Quavo and the Migos are poised to continue doing big things. Salute!
