"Pop That" is a song by American rapper French Montana. Released as the first single from his debut studio album Excuse My French (2013), it features guest appearances from fellow rappers Rick Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne. The song's backing track was composed by Lee On the Beats, who have also helped to write the song along with the four rappers.

Composition[edit]

"Pop That" is a hip hop song of five minutes and four seconds in length.[1] The song's production, composed by record producer Lee On The Beats,[2] is built around an 808 drum pattern, and was described by Tyler McDermott of Billboard as "abrasive", also noting that it also complemented the performance of the rappers well.[3] A looped sample of the Uncle Luke song "I Wanna Rock" – specifically, the phrase "pop that, don't stop' – is used as the song's chorus.[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video premiered on MTV Jams on July 8, 2012.[4]

Accolades[edit]

Complex named the song #29 on their list of the 50 best songs of 2012.[5] BET named it their No. 2 music video of 2012 on their year-end Notarized countdown.[6]
