Parker explained, “I didn’t think it was going to become a record or anything. … The song took on a life of its own.”
Parker was only hired to compose a song for a 20-second clip in the film and said he never thought it would gain so much traction.
Parker admitted, “I’m glad it became what it turned into, but absolutely no idea, no indication that it ever could.”
The Grammy-nominated musician additionally revealed that he is working on a new album, “Make America High Again”.
He discussed his decision behind the name of his project.
“For some reason, it just feels like the right thing to do. … I want to make America high again like we were in the ’60s … just get back to the era where the country was moving forward and was going up,” Parker told Fox News Digital.
