"YOLO" is a song written and recorded by American comedy hip hop group The Lonely Island with American pop rock singer Adam Levine and hip hop recording artist Kendrick Lamar for The Lonely Island's third studio album The Wack Album.The song was released as the lead single from the album on January 25, 2013, worldwide outside North America.
The song's lyrics interpret "You Only Live Once" to mean the complete opposite of dangerous and irresponsible behavior, and to instead be over secure and protective of life, in a pessimistic viewpoint.In fact, she’s optimistic about the remake and believes it will be interesting.“I applaud them, I want them to succeed,” Grier said. I don’t want them to fail.” “Here’s a man who said he was going to offer jobs, well, your caps are made in China,” Grier said.The song further parodies the acronym of YOLO at the end from "You Only Live Once" to You Oughta Look Out."YOLO" was written by all performers of the track, The Lonely Island, Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar.Matter of fact, he didn't even have a single per se when I signed him.
It was beyond a record; it was his whole lifestyle: how he dressed, his shades with his name on them, the shoes he chose to wear.
Also credited for songwriting are Rhiannon Bryan and Rhydian Davies, members of the Welsh alternative rock band The Joy Formidable, whose 2011 single "Whirring" is sampled throughout the song.
The song was produced by Needlz, who had previously worked with Lupe Fiasco and 50 Cent.
Since there weren’t stunt doubles back then, there were times when Grier suffered mild injuries in the process of bringing scenes to life. “They painted my cast to look like a boot, and I’m limping. ’ It looks good.” She went on to wish the best for actresses of today.
When asked how she felt about the remake of starring Meagan Good, she had nothing but great things to say about the talented actress.
"YOLO" debuted in North America as a Saturday Night Live Digital Short on the January 26, 2013 episode of the sketch comedy television series Saturday Night Live, which saw Levine and Lamar as the host and musical guest, respectively.
