"Let me tell you all something, Mary was the very first one to be fancy," Swizz said in a TwitVid. "You understand? In case you ain't know. Look out for the ['Fancy'] remix. Look out for the, I ain't gonna give you the rest of the secrets, but Mary is the fanciest of the fanciest. How many songs we do in the studio? We've been in the studio for two hours, four deep, classic. Look out for the Mary classic material. We taking y'all back to the 411, 2011 'ish." (Twit Vid)
Mary also said fans could expect new music out of her session with Beatz.
"Y'all have no idea what's about to take place," Mary added during the video. "I love you guys so much, you have no idea what you are about to encounter. It's showtime. And I don't mean showtime for the people, I mean showtime for us. I love you guys." (Twit Vid)

"He's original... He's modern... he lives this sh*t for real... he is rap... Yall gone see though... This Swizz year... Yall gone see." (Kanye West's Twitter)
Last month, Beatz said Drake initially wanted Andre 3000 to appear on his "Fancy" record.
"Andre 3000 was supposed to be on 'Fancy,' " Swizz revealed. "Drake had a group of people he wanted to be on it: Andre, Tip, this one, that one. But the deadline for the album rushed a lot of things. [Drake] can tell you the rest, but Tip just wound up being on it. Which I'm cool with, cause that's the homie." (MTV)
