Alongside names like Soulja Boy, Ezra Koenig, and Father John Misty, portions of Animal Collective’s “My Girls” is used on “6 Inch” featuring The Weeknd. On Genius, co-producer of “6 Inch” BOOTS, explains the lyrics from “My Girls” were embodied by accident. The original line from “My Girls” goes “I don’t mean to seem like I care about material things.” Beyonce sings “she too smart to crave material things.”
Although it’s not a direct copy of the lyrics, Beyoncé decided to credit Animal Collective anyway since it sounds very similar.
BOOTS also says the song’s bridge is viewed as a “spiritual sequel to the ‘Ghost’ section of ‘Haunted.’” Read his annotation below and listen to “My Girls” here.
