Kari Faux Talks Working on Childish Gambino’s ‘Awaken, My Love!’
“We were staying in this house that he made the album in. I wasn’t living in L.A. anymore; I had moved back to Little Rock. Whenever I would come out to L.A., though, I would stay at the house. It was just basically a creative house he called The Factory. They were working on the TV show [Atlanta] and the album there. I was finishing up my album there, and Malik was starting on his album there. He basically was just like, “Oh, come listen to this, listen to that’,’ or I would show him stuff. I remember him saying, "Yeah, I want to use your voice for something.” I was like, “OK, cool.” One day, I went in there with [producer] Ludwig [Göransson] and they were working on “Zombies.” [Gambino] was like, “Hey, I want you to say this,” and I was like, “All right, cool.” He kind of directed me on how to say it: whisper and sound really creepy. So I did it and he was like, “Yep, that’s very dope, I like it.” Then he just kept it.” - Kari Faux
