[SOHH highlights a hot record on Tuesdays and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the track in Singled Out. After Vali broke down her "When The Rain Goes" music video, Nick Cannon's protégé duo Wonder Broz break down their Sage the Gemini-assisted "Drop It" smash.]
We first met Sage at a Power 106 basketball game. After our performance, he came to us saying, "Y'all are dope. We should get to the studio and record something." So he ended up coming through to the Ncredible Studio and he already had the track and was already up on it.
The rest is pretty much history. He went and put his part onto it and it was very dope. Sage The Gemini was dope. He did one take and that was it. The rest is history. We were rocking with it. -Gennis
We were working on this song for about a couple months. I would say a couple months -Tool
When we got done recording it, I felt like it was a good record but I have a thing where I like to play my music for my family first. I feel like if I play my records for my little brother and he starts to dance, that means I've got a good record. When we played it for my little brother and my grandma, they were all dancing and I felt, "We might have it." I feel like this is a fun record and something everyone is going to love. You can dance to it. -Gennis
We really were talking about how girls like dancing and I wrote my verse. The concept is basically about seeing a girl, knowing she can dance and having her drop it on me. -Tool
Despite only being in their teens, the high-impact music of brothers Gennis, 17, and Tool, 16, has already earned them a mind-blowing following logging more than 2.9 million video views, with the clip for their catchy 2010 single "Chitty Chitty" scoring more than 1.8 million views. The Wonder Broz, signed to actor-turned-rapper-turned-mogul Nick Cannon's NCredible Records, have emerged as rap's next superstar group and established themselves as a viable act on the road. The prolific duo has opened for the New Boyz, Diggy Simmons and the OMG Girlz, as well as appeared at a bevy of high schools and Southern California hotspots including the Crenshaw Plaza and Universal City Walk.
