But now, in a recent radio interview, Em explains that he’d always wanted to work with Bey, but he had to find the right song. “Walk On Water” was the right song, he says, because he feels Beyoncé can relate to the message that she’s not perfect or superhuman or God.
“…I felt like she could probably relate to that. ‘Cause I told her, I said, ‘I never seen you make a mistake before, ever.’ Like, performance wise, everything. Every song she puts out, every album—it’s so calculated and precise. And everything’s always so perfect. ”
