DJ Premier Launches New TTT Label With Help From R&B Star Miguel
(AllHipHop News) Miguel originally posted a snippet of himself in the studio with DJ Premier featuring a clip of the song they were working on at the time.
By the time Miguel’s Wildheart album dropped their original track had been changed due to project deadlines.
The collaboration ended up appearing under the title “Damned” when Miguel’s Wildheart album was finally released in 2016.
DJ Premier and Miguel decided they didn’t want to leave the original version on the cutting room floor, so they completed the original version and turn it into “2 LOVIN U.”
“The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original” DJ Premier told AllHipHop.com in a statement today (February 21).
“Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with,” Premo continued. “What we came up with was a dope, but rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single.”
Their song “2 LOVIN U” has been promoted on ESPN on First Take and SportsCenter, in the form of :20 second snippets.
“Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board,” DJ Premier certified.
The single, is also the first release from DJ Premier’s new label TTT (To The Top).
Miguel and DJ Premier’s “2 LOVIN U” is available now worldwide.
