TrapMoneyBenny Opens Up About 'In My Feelings'

In related news, Drake is also enjoying the success of his "In My Feelings" song. Earlier this month, TrapMoneyBenny, a famed musical producer, shared how the track came together.

He said that his agent, James Fauntleroy, was also working with Drake on Scorpion. Fauntleroy was in Toronto, and he gave him a call and informed him that he will have a song with Drake.

TrapMoneyBenny said that he was excited to work with Drake, but he did not spread the word until the song actually came out.

"I did kind of like the 'meat and potatoes' of the beat: the melody, and most of the drums. 40 and BlaqNmilD are the other producers on it and did a hell of a job with it. They really kind of flipped and went crazy," said the producer. "They did the samples and gave it that super New Orleans bounce feel. But yeah, I did the melody and the drums."

Drake's Scorpion consists of 25 songs. Some of them are "March 14," "Final Fantasy," "After Dark" (feat. Static Major and Ty Dolla $ign), "Don't Matter To Me" (feat. Michael Jackson), "Finesse," "Blue Tint," "Ratchet Happy Birthday," "That's How You Feel," and more.
