Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd talks writing Beyonce’s ‘Formaation’ Hook
The brothers of Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi go shirtless for the magazine’s Summer Music issue, appearing side-by-side in front of a purple backdrop.
In the article, Swae Lee opened up about what it was like to write the hook for Beyoncé’s “Formation.” “When I made that Beyoncé hook I was thinking nothing about it,” he said. “I make a lot of songs, so I’m just thinking that this is another song. A couple months later, Mike [WiLL Made-It] tells me that Beyoncé wants it. I couldn’t imagine!
“I come in the studio,” he added. “And she’s just like, a goddess or something. Just sitting there. This good aura. They played it for me and I’m like, It’s a new Beyoncé. She put her own twist on it. She has so much sauce on that song, it blew me away … She freaked it.”
