“I was really nervous because we really wanted to have a very authentic ‘Y2K’ sample in there, and Sean Paul, he’s legendary,” Ice Spice told Apple Music. “And that song alone, his “Gimme the Light,” is so iconic that I was so nervous to sample it, because I’m like, “This isn’t going to get cleared, so what’s the point?” But thankfully we got it cleared. Shouts to Sean Paul. He’s so real.”
