Tyler, The Creator has shared that he initially wrote Frank Ocean’s feature on his hit single “She” for Snoop Dogg. The rapper spoke out during a live-streamed performance at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena, announcing the news to the crowd.
“I originally made this beat for Snoop Dogg but I had no way to get it to him, so me and my big homie did this song, and it goes like this,” Tyler said before launching into rapping the track, which comes off of his 2011 debut studio LP Goblin.

Ocean appeared on “She” instead, both rapping the intro verse and singing the hook.
“The blinds wide open so he can see you in the dark when you’re sleepin’,” Ocean sings. “Think about it, fresh out the shower.”
While Tyler might not have been able to secure his feature on the single, Snoop Dogg ended up being a fan of “She” regardless. “I like that. I need that. That’s hard,” Snoop Dogg said about the track in an interview with SMUG TV, per HipHopDx.
