[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the record. After Texas rapper Spark Dawg tells us why he chose to address one of Harlem's up-and-coming spitters, Brick Squad rapper Waka Flocka Flame breaks down his song, "Round of Applause," featuring Drake.]
The way "Round of Applause" came together was I was in a real relaxed mood.
I just felt good. It's a easy process ... as soon as I hear the beat I know what I want to say. I felt like women should give a round of applause. To tell the truth, I was in the studio and I was looking at the backend of a woman, and it was hot! You know, round of applause.
After I finished the record, I let it set and I was thinking about dropping another single and right before I dropped it I called Drake. I f*ck with Drake, and I told him, "Yo, that new sh*t you got out, that sh*t hard," and he told me he likes songs off of my mixtape. It had me like, "D*mn, he know about that?He did a verse to it and sent it back to me.
I've grown and matured and got a different approach. I know what is missing [since Flockaveli]. Last time on Flockaveli I came with a good sound and now I'm gonna come with a whole new different sound again.
