[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After DJ Rapid Ric cleaned out his "Bodies Hit the Floor" record last week, rapper/producer David Banner analyzes his new Chris Brown-assisted "So Amazing" hit.]
The most amazing thing about "So Amazing" and the Sex, Drugs & Video Games album is because of all the features. It's all about bringing features together.
When you go from Chris Brown to A$AP Rocky to Kardinal Offishall to Big K.R.I.T. to Tank, I don't think there's an aspect of this album that they can't take and be amazed by. The cohesiveness of the album is amazing. As far as how some of it came together, I'm constantly working with Chris Brown as far as working on our albums. We knock these records out and see what album they're going on. When I'm working on his album, he's helping me work on my album. We continue to keep supporting each other and keep pushing each other.
I'm always moving forward. The past is the past. I try to stay as much in the present as I possibly can. That's the only thing we can try to control. We say we're trying to be a part of the future but we're in the present.
I try to stay in the present and try to push toward something new and fresh that nobody's seen before. The video for "So Amazing" is in stop motion. I haven't seen that in hip-hop. We're just trying to open up people's eyes to something fresh and new.
David Banner is a popular actor, rapper and producer who has worked closely with T.I., Lil Flip, Lil Wayne and more in the past.
