Nothin' On You nearly didn't end up in Bobby Ray's hands...

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.”
