YG & Mike WiLL Unite For “Heart Of A Lion”, Von Miller’s pulse sets the tempo. Mike WiLL Made It and YG’s new track comes in collaboration with Adidas. The two artists joined the brand to create a pre-game anthem Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller, who supplied his heartbeat for the track. Building the beat around Miller’s pulse during training, Mike WiLL creates a sub-bass punch that’s as physical as it gets. Meanwhile, YG supplies motivating rhymes that should get anyone preparing for a big game the inspiration they need.
“I’ve always been a fan of adidas and how they create, and they’ve been a fan of my work, so we came together with Von Miller to create something,” said Mike WiLL of the project. “It’s really all about Von Miller working out – they recorded his heartbeat and asked if we could do something with that… so I took the approach of finding a tempo from his BPM and built from there. Finding something new and fresh and different, like I always do when I go in the studio and work.”
A portion of the song was previously heard in an Adidas commercial, but the full track has now been shared by Mike on his SoundCloud. The track follows YG and Mike’s Ransom 2 collaboration, “Gucci on My,” which also featured contributions from 21 Savage and Migos.
Mike WiLL Made It has hinted that he’s hard at work with Rae Sremmurd on their upcoming third full length SremmLife 3. The brothers released the WiLL-produced “Perplexing Pegasus” this summer. It’s one of many productions from Mike this year, which include Kendrick Lamar’s Hot 100 No. 1 “Humble” and Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj’s top ten hit “Rake It Up.”
YG is expected to release his Just Re’d Up 3 project alongside DJ Mustard later this year. He just wrapped up a tour with Kendrick Lamar.
