UNK^6 is joined by 10-time Grammy® winner, Joel Kibble (Take 6) with a track written by multi-platinum producer Mantra (BeatsByMantra), whose credits include Future, Rihanna, Will Smith and others.
Tony Reynolds, the co-writer, originally wrote the lyrics and arranged the vocals as a bravado piece saying “I wanted to be a Billionaire.” Like Calloway sung, “I Want To Be Rich, or “I Want To Be A Billionaire,” by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars. “I read Forbes Magazine didn’t want to recognize Kanye as a billionaire, so I added “Like Kanye West,” to celebrate him becoming a billionaire.
“The pandemic hit and then the George Floyd protests,” Reynolds said. “I felt compelled to say something about the current times in this song. I felt awkward doing a “brag” song without mentioning the protests --- I mean I couldn’t have Charli D’amelio saying more about Black Lives than me!”
