French Montana has the biggest hit of his career on his hands with “Unforgettable,” which is driven by an almost-absent Swae Lee‘s evocative and melodic hook. Another standout on the song is the beat, which is a relatively simple but catchy Afro beat provided by production collective 1Mind and Jaegen.
Mac Sutphin, speaking on behalf of 1Mind, which also consists of Sebastian Lopez and Michael Lohmeier, discussed how he made most of the beat in a four-hour session after Oliver El-Khatib, Drake’s manager, asked him to send over beats for a final Views recording session. The beat was eventually passed to Jaegen, who “opened up the beat.”
