In this week’s episode of “How It Went Down,” Mike Posner sat down with Billboard to share the story of how he created his song “Song About You.”
The track first came to life when Posner was in the studio with his producer Ricky Reed and songwriter Dan Wilson. After having already written one song earlier that day, they were getting ready to wrap things up and as Wilson got up to leave, he picked up one of Reed’s guitars and started playing.
“Ricky and I both really liked that immediately,” Posner tells Billboard. “And Ricky literally took his phone out and recorded Dan playing that with his phone. And he started making the beat, and that's the take of the guitar. Never redid that or anything.”
