[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Young Money princess Shanell aka SNL unwraps her Lil Wayne and Drake featured "So Good" anthem, Bobby V recalls how he and Wayne reconnected for Bobby's latest single, "Mirror."]
Man, it's crazy, it's really a blessing from God on how it all happened.
Me and Wayne had actually lost touch for a minute, because my number had changed and his number had changed and we were both out touring. So we hadn't talked in over a year, for sure.
Nicki Minaj had hit me up out the blue, like, "Yo, I want you to be on my album." I was cool with that, so she flew me to L.A. like the next day and we ended up doing the record "Sex in the Lounge" and that's on her album that's out now. Wayne was featured on there too, but he wasn't in L.A., so the song went on the album and that was done.
But a couple weeks later, she had her album release party at Club Liv, so I decided to fly out to Miami to support Nicki; it was big of her to fly me out to L.A. to be on her album, so I had to show support. The whole Young Money/Cash Money was there, you know: Baby and the whole team.
That's when me and Wayne ran back into each other. He stopped me in the middle of the club, like, "Man where you been! Take my number down right now."
The next day, I hit him up and he hit me right back. He told me he was gonna be in the lab and to come through. I went to the studio, kinda just chopped it up and we actually ended up makin' two or three records that night. We was just in work mode.
Ever since then, I've be in Miami more because one thing about Wayne is, he stay workin'. His work ethic is crazy. You think Lil Wayne, you think "He has it all, why he in the studio every night?" But he in the studio every night -- like right now, while we talkin' he in the studio, working.
I'm overly happy with how the track turned out. For real. When I played it for him, he was feeling it, too, the whole concept and everything. I really believe this record is gonna be a big record. I've been reading the feedback from my fans and the blogs and stuff. Alotta people sayin' Bobby V back.
