Metro Boomin stopped by Billboard News during his Billboard cover story shoot to talk about working alongside superstars like Future, 21 Savage and more.

But the hitmaker encountered a slight hiccup when he was cooking up beats for Pluto, presumably for their highly anticipated joint album. “They was beats I was making for the next time I see him, and they was going crazy. Boom, boom, boom. And I just came from Atlanta, and there was a storm. One of my beat machines that I use…. It’s not like a computer, it’s old-school, so it’s plugged up. The power goes out, and you haven’t saved it, that’s it,” he told Billboard‘s Tetris Kelly. “Sometimes, if I’m so far into something and that happens, then I’ll just be like, ‘Alright, I just gotta do something.’ And that usually be a blessing in disguise, I’ve done learned, ’cause the next thing be like, ‘Oh man, I wouldn’t have had this if I hadn’t lose this.’”

Metro (real name Leland Tyler Wayne) tweeted about the situation in late August. “Just made 3 [fire] beats on my MPC 3000 and the power just went off at the crib I didn’t even get to record them in yet,” he wrote. “I’m finna go cry myself to sleep bye y’all.”


On top of his upcoming album with Future, Metro is also working on a joint album with J.I.D (“I’m really excited about that one, he beamed) and is producing A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd‘s next albums.
