The making of “Sparks Will Fly”
One of my favorites from Born Sinner was J. Cole’s smooth collab with Jhene Aiko — the bonus track “Sparks Will Fly”. This one picked up steam as the album settled and both artists’ star power rose in 2013. Today, we get a look into how the production was made for “Sparks Will Fly” from the producers, Christian Rich as they sit down with Truth Studios. The duo walks us through how the beat started from scratch, they had a female vocal lying around that turned out to be the perfect fit, to adding some hip hop drums from there. Watch the quick clip above to hear the rest of the story and if you do, you’ll likely be inspired to listen to the full product. I gotchu. See below.
