"Creepin'," Is What Happens When a Song Samples Another Song's Sample...and It Works Out Well

The movie, "Inception," is about dreams within dreams. It is good but weird. The song, "Creepin'," by Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, and 21 Savage is an, "Inception," of samples. It draws heavily from the song, "I Don't Wanna Know," by Mario Winans which used an Enya sample and had P. Diddy involved too. We've got a sample of a sample now, and it is weird but still good and catchy. To be fair, Metro and Weekend have outright said it is more of a cover of Winans' song than it is an original piece and Winans even provides some new backing vocals for, "Creepin'," so everyone is perfectly fine with this sample-ception. The original song and the new version are both quite good, so it all worked out for the best.
