The highly anticipated single, teased earlier this Summer by Lil Pump, came

to fruition when Lil Pump reached out to XXXTentacion’s Mom, Cleopatra

Bernard, in an effort to posthumously create a track that would continue the

legacy of her son’s status as an innovative force. In an effort to do just that,

three-time Grammy-award winning music producer Mally Mall lends his

producing talents to the posthumous collab with XXXTentacion and Lil Pump,

with vocal assists from Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee and Columbian reggaeton

superstar Maluma — the end result: the just-dropped single “Arms Around You”

with Mall producing with JonFX and Skrillex.

Mally Mall had this to say about working the passion project, “I am so

incredibly blessed to be a part of this amazing collaboration. This project

would have never come to be without the love and guidance of Cleopatra

Bernard. Thanks and gratitude to Easean Bolden, SVP A&R Warner Bros

Records, Lil Pump, Swae Lee, Maluma and their management teams, JonFX,

Skrillex, Poo Bear, Jaycen Joshua, and Koen Heldens – it’s been a privilege and

an honor working with all of you…I truly hope we have made him proud!”

With 2018 being a standout year for the mega producer, Mall has produced

Platinum hits for Rae Sremmurd and is featured on David Guetta’s double LP

“7” with the single “Motto” featuring G-Eazy and Lil Uzi Vert. Mall has also just finished a soon-to-be-released song with Jason Derulo called “Last Night” featuring Quavo, Young Thug, Gucci Mane and Offset; he is exec producing French Montana’s upcoming album Jungle Rules 2 and his next project features a Migos x Rae Sremmurd collab.

Mally Mall is currently repped by Gordon Dillard of Maverick Management in

Beverly Hills, CA.
