The breakout song, premiered in December 2015, was released for digital download on the iTunes Store as a single, before being re-released in February 2016. “Panda” was heavily sampled by Desiigner’s fellow GOOD Music label-mate and founder Kanye West, for “Pt. 2“, a song on West’s seventh studio album The Life of Pablo, which had the british producer claiming that Kanye West hasn’t paid anyone yet.
Debut hit for the artist, the song and video gathered a billion views in only three youtube posts, with two third thanks to the audio only.
