Swedish producer and songwriter Ludwig Göransson recently broke down Childish Gambino‘s single “Redbone” for Genius’ Deconstructed series. The track, which serves as the second single off the rapper’s Awaken, My Love! album, has been certified platinum.

Göransson discussed his and Gambino’s creative process along with the structure and elements of the song. As many fans have noticed, it sounds a lot like Bootsy Collins’ 1976 classic, “I’d Rather Be With You.” Göransson didn’t mention Collins by name, though he did acknowledge Funkadelic, which Bootsy was a member of.
