Swizz Beatz discusses the creation of Jay-Z’s “Open Letter”


With Jay-Z‘s “Open Letter” setting the internet ablaze these past couple of days, Swizz Beatz, one of the beat makers responsible for constructing it, called in to Hot 97 to discuss how the track came about.

Stating the experience began as a beat started off in Jay’s office, Swizzy then goes on to explain how Timbaland got involved after hearing the beat at the 40/40 Club. Also revealing that Trey Songz does in fact feature on the track (at the 2:10 mark), the short but sweet audio clip does enough to wet the appetites of the fans in need of every detail about “Open Letter”.
