On the eve of Ransom 2’s release, Mike WiLL Made-It and Pharrell Williams go and get that bag as a super-producer duo on “Aries (YuGo).”
Over hypnotic production, bells, and chimes, Skateboard P turns into his alter ego Station Wagon P, rhyming about his uncanny knack for making things happen.
“I believe in miracles, but I don’t believe in waiting for them,” he raps. “You gotta make that shit happen / In ways they cannot imagine / Make ’em think it’s magic.”
Earlier this week, Mike WiLL had high praise for the track. “This song with @Pharrell on #RANSOM2 gives me the feeling I had when I first heard Black Beatles,” he wrote, referencing his first No. 1, the Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane collaboration.

What makes the collaboration all the more special? Today is not only the eve of Ransom 2’s release, it’s also Mike WiLL’s 28th birthday.
“Aries (YuGo)” follows R2 collaborations with Future (“Razzle Dazzle”), Chief Keef and Rae Sremmurd (“Come Down”), Lil Yachty (“Hasselhoff”), Big Sean (“On the Come Up”), Rihanna (“Nothing is Promised”). and 21 Savage, YG, and Migos (“Gucci On My”).
Ransom 2 is out at midnight. Listen to “Aries (YuGo)” below.
