B.o.B’s US number one Nothin’ On You was written for Lupe Fiasco, according the rapper’s label boss.
Speaking to MTV News in the US producer Jim Jonsin- who signed B.o.B- said he was desperate to get the song for his artist.
He explained: “I was actually working on a session in Chung King [Studios], and [Atlantic Records chairman] Craig Kallman called me during that session with that particular track, to work on it for Lupe Fiasco
“I told Craig, 'I like the song a lot. It's a smash and could be somebody's single. But it's not Lupe's record. I need this record for B.o.B. Please give this record to B.o.B.' I guess they went through whoever they went through, convinced whoever they needed to, and it got to B.o.B.”
Nothin On You was produced by The Smeezingtons- who are singer Bruno Mars and songwriting partner Phillip Lawrence.
B.o.B recently told us even he was surprised by how much people love the track. He said: “We really didn't expect it to have the dramatic impact it had, nor how fast it happened- It's literally a dream come true.”
