MGK Feat. Ester Dean “Invincible” – Chadwick’s Banger Of The Week [Music Video]
You may have heard the track as John Cena’s theme song on WWE or on a variety of montages of awesomeness on youtube. The song is a single and follows MGK’s style of raw but uplifting messages that his fans know and love. The MC though, was not a fan of the song at first. He tells Tampa Bay’s WiLD 94.1 radio station,
“First off, I hated the song when I first did it, because it was brought to me by corporate America. They didn’t even come to me with the song. It was like a contest between the Interscope rappers like Yelawolf, Kendrick Lamar and myself, which I [later] found out.”
“It took weeks to get me to do the song, then three days later, it was on the Verizon commercial, I was like, ‘Oh my God. This is crazy. This is nuts. This is cool.’ [But] I told my management, ‘Don’t you dare let them make this into a song.’ A month passes by, all of a sudden, I open up an email. They’re like, ‘Yeah. Jimmy [Iovine] wants you to records a second verse to this.’ And it had the hook on it.’ I don’t operate like that. I hate cookie cutter songs, like B.o.B. [and Hayley Williams] with ‘Airplanes,’ like [Eminem and Rihanna's] ‘Love the Way You Lie.’ You weren’t there making the song with each other in the studio. It was presented to you. I write all my hooks. When I got this hook, I was offended. ‘You guys think I’m a cookie cutter artist?’ I don’t work like that.”
The song, no matter what, is a good one. Check it out.
