"Working with Shawnna was a big deal for us," Future Brown said in an email. "It is an honor to have her vocal this track. It's incredible hearing how she flowed over the beat. Bang Bang on these weak hoes / Throwing money like free throws / You mad cuz he chose and I'm stacking chips like Fritos, Doritos, I'm in Heathrow / Jimmy Choo's and my feet cold. Her lyrics are empowering, vivid and playful in the same breath."
"DJ Victoriouz's hook occurred by chance while we were recording Johnny May Cash's part in the studio for "Killin Time" he hopped in the booth and just started singing over the beat. He sounded so good that we got into the studio the next morning and played him "Talkin Bandz" and the rest is history. His hook is definitely one of our favorites on the album, his harmonies are brilliant."
