Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about the track, Vory said: “‘Daylight’ was a remnant of donda. We had probably recorded six records… ‘Daylight’ was just one that didn’t really make the cut. But everyone loved it, we just didn’t know where to put it. Pusha T kept telling me about it, saying it was one of her favorite records. I hit Ye and I was like, ‘Yo, we gotta do something with this record’ and he was like, ‘Yo, put it on your album.'”
