Drake and Future Could Have Had Travis Scott’s “Goosebumps” Beat First
Before this weekend it feels sort of impossible to imagine people other than Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar gracing the ridiculously dope Cardo-produced "Goosebumps" instrumental. That was before this weekend, though, when PartyNextDoor and Jeremih—who've apparently ended ended their feud recently—popped up using the instrumental for a song called "Don't Tell Me."
When the song popped up, people immediately began speculating that the two crooners had been given the instrumental before Scott. Speaking with the folks at DJBooth.net, Cardo confirmed that only a few people had access to the instrumental, and all of them are rap superstars.
"Only three to four people had that beat," Cardo told the site. "That was Drake, ScHoolboy Q, Future—don't know if he ever got it—Rihanna and I sent it to Young Thug as well."
As DJ Booth notes, if Cardo did, indeed, send Drake the "Goosebumps" instrumental, it becomes easy to see how it ended up in PND's hands. After all, he is signed to Drizzy's OVO Sound.
What's also interesting about Cardo's revelation is that it's actually pretty easy to see any one of the artists he mentioned absolutely destroying that instrumental. If you can carry a melody at a high level, it's pretty much perfect for you. Still, we're happy it made its way to Scott.
