The champagne had previously cameoed in Weezy's "Lollipop" video. Four different variations of "Halo" will be bottled: Halo Brut, Halo Brut Vintage, Halo Rose and Halo Pinnacle, each with its own mix, taste, blend and texture. "Champagne is for celebrating," Lil Wayne said. "I'm ready to put my foot in a new door. There are so many different business opportunities; I want to take advantage of it all."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
