Fresh off the release of his album Cold Summer, DJ Mustard is back with a video for the project’s new single “Want Her” featuring YG and Quavo. The amateur-style visual features shots of girls pole dancing in clubs.
The track, which is currently number three on DJcity’s Hot Box chart, follows the album’s lead single “Don’t Hurt Me” featuring Nicki Minaj and Jeremih.

DJ Mustard recently spoke with Hip-Hop Wired about how he produced his latest solo single, “Whole Lotta Lovin’.” The track, which features Travis Scott, is Mustard’s latest foray into the dance world and was DJcity’s sixth most downloaded song in January.
In the video (see below), Mustard explains how he produced the verses, buildups and drops for “Whole Lotta Lovin'” using FL Studio and an MPC. He even reveals that the song took “three to six months” to finish. “It was probably my longest time ever working on one song just because it wasn’t like what I always do and it was me just trying something new.”
The Los Angeles native also says that Rihanna’s “Needed Me,” which he produced with Frank Dukes and Twice as Nice, was a big accomplish for him. “I did about a 100 records trying to get on the [Anti] album,” he says with a laugh.

A day after releasing his Travis Scott-assisted single “Whole Lotta Lovin’,” DJ Mustard stopped by The Cruz Show on Power 106 to catch up and discuss the collab.
The Los Angeles producer also spoke on why he’s branching out from hip-hop. “Once you start doing the same thing over and over, they start to notice, and they don’t care about you no more,” Mustard said. “I talked to Timbaland for a long time and he was like, ‘You gotta just switch up. You gotta do what you wanna do.'”
However, Mustard admitted that not all of his fans support his work in EDM. “Why can’t I do EDM? Is it because I’m black or something?,” he said with a laugh.
Mustard also discussed his start as a DJ and how it’s helped him as a producer. “I never knew I was going to be a producer. I always just wanted to be a good DJ.” He continued: “All the great producers were DJs. Dr. Dre was a DJ. Lil Jon is a DJ. Khaled is a DJ.”
