Lil Dicky also revealed how they came together for this project.
Here’s what he said:
“It actually started with a very silly notion that I wanted to make a song about animals, where different artists played different animals, without it really having anything to do with climate change or [having] any sort of consciousness to it.
I thought, ‘What if we made a song from the animals’ perspective, about how they love the earth and how they need to save it?
It went from being this silly, fun little idea to the most important thing I’ll ever do in my life.
You name six people that are already on it, and you say everyone plays a different animal, it’s all for charity, we gotta save the earth, and honestly everyone was very receptive.
She was moving around so much, and we knew that she was doing this concert called Wango Tango, which was in L.A., so we literally set up a booth in her dressing room and got her before she got on stage. But then not only that, we’re there and Shawn Mendes is there, and the Backstreet Boys are there, Miguel is there. Megan Trainor’s there. So literally while we’re there, we’re pitching them, and bringing them in.
The whole time I was envisioning it being Kanye … but I left myself too short of a window. He’s such a hard man to get a hold of. He changes his number, he changes his email, so I didn’t have access to him. I was running out of time so I reached out to Kevin Hart.”
