How did you blow up into the scene?
We blew up via “Bells” with DBN Gogo, people didn’t really know who we are until the song. It was the first song that put us on like that.
Behind the Scenes of “Masterpiece”: The Making of TNK Musiq’s Hit Track
Since “Masterpiece” is your second collaboration with DBN Gogo, how did you guys come up with this one?
“Masterpiece” was made around the same time “Bells” was made. But we couldn’t drop it back then because there were a lot of complications. So, we decided to drop it this year.
What was the creative process behind “Masterpiece”?
It was all in a form of a movement when we were always in the studio, and “Masterpiece” was made like any other song.
How did the name “Masterpiece” come about?
[Chuckles] Yoh! When we worked on the track, we were like it sounds like a masterpiece, so why not call it a “Masterpiece”? We didn’t really put much thought into it, we just went with what came to mind at the time.
Can you say “Masterpiece” is one of the best tracks produced apart from all the others you have produced?
T: For me, “Masterpiece” is a song that leads to the other songs that are coming. It’s an introduction of what is yet to come especially because we had just signed with Sony Music so it was that kind of thing.
How different is it from the tracks you’ve produced?
It’s more chilled, has a bit of Sgubhu but it’s relaxed. Whereas the previous songs would cater more to the streets.
