Velous Talks Producing Kanye West’s ‘All Day’

Kanye West’s new single “All Day” has been sitting atop DJcity’s “Hot Box” chart for nearly a week now. And as the track continues to climb other charts, it’s come to light that at least 20 individuals contributed to the song.
One of the most important contributors to “All Day” is Velous, the 23-year-old beatsmith that produced it. During a recent visit to New York’s Hot 97, the upstate New Yorker discussed how the track came about, who his influences are and what other projects he’s working on.
According to Velous, the beat for “All Day” was originally intended for French Montana. He also revealed that the track at one point contained a Sade sample, but it was eventually pulled due to licensing issues. Watch the full interview above.
