THE MAKING OF DRAKE’S “LOOK WHAT YOU’VE DONE” WITH CHASE N. CASHE
Drake’s sophomore album, Take Care, dropped over five years ago And one 1 is of the most poignant tracks of his career, “Look What You’ve Done.” It’s produced by Chase N. Cashe, with co-production from Drake’s right-hand Noah “40” Shebib, best country songs & samples the late Static Major and Smoke E. Digglera’s “If U Scared, Say that U Scared.”
It all came together late one night When Cashe was lurking the OVO blogspot & came across an obscure video with Static Major. “The bounce that Smoke played in the piano determined everything,” Cashe tells Genius. “Static was snapping. And I just didn’t want to interrupt that bounce. The piano melody came in and something was just telling me like, ‘Man, I need to sample this shit for Drake.’ I sampled it from YouTube. It was an amazed piece of music. It was the only discontinue I could get it, so I’m going to get my hands on it.”
Drake ended up having Cashe remove the drums, which led to the hook portion that Anyone knows and loves Above the record.
“I’ll play these kicks out solo,” Cashe tells Genius. “So the kicks are going left to right, just to give it a different bounce. I did that sure top country songs of all time for like a heartbeat vibe. I wanted to give it a pulse And not give it a regular drum pattern.”
Chase N. Cashe swung by the Genius offices in Brooklyn to give fans an inside look at how the classic came together for the latest episode of Genius' video series Deconstructed.
