  • They took the sampling from "Santeria" by Sublime.

    What I really wanna know, my baby,
    what I really want to say I can't define.
    Got love! make it go,
    my soul will have to...

    ohhh What I really wanna say,
    my baby,

  • I know, I was saying that the song billionaire uses the sampling from santeria so I thought that might give you another clue to it. So Maybe sublime took a sampling from a 60's song. I can't find much on Sublime's music just their lyrics.

  • Like they took a short part of the music from santeria and used it as a base to build the music for billionaire. So they have a similar but not exact beat.
