House DJ David Morales accused West of stealing the bass line from a remix of his 1991 song “What Is This Thing Called Love”
Amber Rose accused Kanye and Lil Pump of using her SlutWalk Movement as inspiration for the song without giving her any credit
The video was viewed more than 76 million times in it’s first week on youtube

According to Nicki Minaj, watching porn while in the studio is an important part of Kanye’s creative process
The vision for the video came from executive producer Spike Jonze who sketched it on the back of a book
“They may walk and talk and dress big, but in the presence of a woman, they’re just the little guys.”
“I Love it” is Kanye’s 17th top-ten song and Lil Pump’s second top ten on the Billboard charts.
