Young Thug's "singing album" Beautiful Thugger Girls finally dropped earlier this month. In a new interview producer Charlie Handsome has said that Frank Ocean was due to appear on "Me Or Us," a track on the project he co-produced alongside Rex Kudo and Post Malone.

“Originally, we thought Frank Ocean was going to get on this record," Handsome told DJ Booth. "We were really hoping for Frank, but I don’t know if his schedule didn’t work out or whatever." Earlier this year Young Thug appeared on a remix of Ocean's "Slide On Me."

Handsome charted the entire history of "Me Or Us," a song possibly best known for interpolating Bright Eyes's emo anthem "First Day Of My Life." It started life in a session for Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo when Post Malone began playing with an acoustic guitar in the studio, he explained. "Kanye had this cool melody/hook concept called "Gangster Love," that’s what we were calling it anyway, and it sounded super crazy."

The producer also teased that a new version of "Me Or Us" is in the pipeline. "I think right now Thug’s going to have Travis Scott cut a piece to that and re-upload it to Spotify so that’ll be really cool. Look out for 'Me or Us 2.0.'”
