Watch Boi-1da Explain How He Produced Drake’s ‘Diplomatic Immunity’

Grammy-winning producer Boi-1da has explained how he made Drake’s “Diplomatic Immunity” on a new episode of Genius’ Deconstructed. The track was DJcity’s No. 19 most-downloaded song of January.

“Diplomatic Immunity” is the second single off Drake’s two-track Scary Hours EP. Released in January, the song debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The first single, “God’s Plan,” debuted at No. 1 in the same week, making Drake the first artist to have two singles debut in the top 10 at the same time.

An in-house OVO Sound producer, Boi-1da starts off by discussing what made him want to work with Drizzy when they first met as teenagers. He then goes on to break down “Diplomatic Immunity” in FL Studio and ends by sharing his approach to making a beat.
