Get ready, world: Mike WiLL Made It has some plans for you. As announced today (June 5), the Atlanta producer will release a new song, “Buy the World,” on June 17 – his second single off his forthcoming Interscope debut. Future, Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar are its featured guests, hinting that Mike WiLL may be plotting another hip-hop/R&B radio takeover with his efforts.
“Buy the World” follows “23,” which features Miley Cyrus, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa — and a time when Mike WiLL’s work efforts were near impossible to avoid. In 2012 and 2013, he was crossing over from hip-hop/R&B (2 Chainz‘s “No Lie,” Juicy’s “Bandz a Make Her Dance,” G.O.O.D. Music‘s “Mercy,” Ciara‘s “Body Party”) to pop (Rihanna‘s “Pour It Up,” Cyrus’ Bangerz), while releasing hit after hit in the process. This year Mike WiLL has continued to straddle those genre lines, producing for the likes of Candice Glover, Mariah Carey and Future, though for not as many songs as in previous years.
