Production Team 1Mind Talk Drake's OVO Passing On The Beat For French Montana's 'Unforgettable'
French Montana scored the biggest hit of his career with “Unforgettable” featuring Swae Lee.
At the moment, the record sits in the #3 position on the Hot 100 and has collected over 24 million global streams on Spotify in the last week.
Even though French could not remember the producers behind his chart winner when he was on The Breakfast Club, the beat makers are appreciative of the success, even though it was originally sent to the OVO camp.
The production team that goes by 1Mind (made up of Sebastian, Mac, and Michael) spoke to Billboard about “Unforgettable.”
“I kind of felt that at the time because that’s what I always feel when I make a beat: ‘Yo, this is going to be huge!’ [Laughs] I guess I knew that the beat was really good. We all knew. We wasn’t sure what was going to happen to it,” said Mac. “[OVO] messaged us back and said, ‘Keep this beat. It’s great.’ So we were all optimistic about it, even though they didn’t use it. Then, once we heard the Swae reference, we were like, ‘Yo, this is going to be a huge song.'”
The Indianapolis-bred trio also stated they were not upset about French forgetting who produced the track.
“The producer isn’t always in the studio with the artist when the song is being made. So it’s pretty understandable, especially when the beat is being passed around and a lot of people are working on it,” added an uncredited 1Mind member.
