BackgroundEdit

ILoveMakonnen was originally released as a free EP from the artist in July 2014. As a result of the success with the remixed version of "Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday" by Drake, an EP was determined to be re-released in later in the year on December 15th, 2014 through OVO Sound.[3] The track list however cuts the original seven songs on the mixtape to mastered versions and two new songs on the purchaseable EP. A track titled "Swerve" would be the only new song to be released on the EP.[4]

SinglesEdit

"Tuesday" was released as the first single seven months prior to the release of the free EP as a digital download from the ILoveMakonnen mixtape. The song was eventually released as an official single on September 1, 2014. The single became Makonnen's most successful song to date, peaking at number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100.[5]
