The driving metaphors and imagery are at a high in this cool new collab with Logic and Childish Gambino. “Driving Ms. Daisy”, a self-produced cut from Logic, marks the start of the promo for his upcoming debut album, exec produced by No I.D. expected this fall. No confirmation if “Driving Ms. Daisy” will make it, but given the strength of the personal rhymes and Gambino’s superb guest appearance, I have a feeling it will. Logic talks about the stress he’s been under as Gambino focuses on past relationships and how they’ve changed as he’s reached fame. Listen below:
“I was actually on my headlining tour when I produced and wrote this record in one sitting,” he tells Billboard. “I was deathly sick and dealing with a lot of problems, not personal so much as business and getting the album ready. I decided to put it on a song, and the fact [that] I produced it made it feel more honest to me. I gave the listener every aspect of my mind on this matter.”
“It’s a play on the movie, where I feel like I’m Morgan Freeman driving and Ms. Daisy is my accomplishments,” he says. “I’m driving on the road of success and I’m so focused on the destination that sometimes I forget to enjoy the view along the way and the “company” in the backseat.
“I actually sent the record to Gambino for fun, more like, ‘hey, check out this song I’m working on.’ He really liked it. He liked it so much I said, ‘hell, you wanna hop on it?'” he shares. “We had talked about doing a record in the past but it didn’t pan out. Him and Fam — who he works with closely — really liked it and made it happen. He doesn’t do a lot of features so it was dope to not only do a song with the homie, but someone I’m a fan of!”
