Origin and background

Capital Bra (2017)

The song was written by Vladislav Balovatsky ( Capital Bra ), Hussein Akkouche Samra, Lea-Marie Becker ( LEA ), Wim Treuner and Robin Haefs . [1] The hookline is sung by Lea. The song was produced by the production team Beatzarre and Djorkaeff from Berlin . The song was released as the fifth single and the tenth track from the album Berlin Leben 2 on the major label Universal Urban .

For Lea it is the first collaboration with Capital and Samra. She said: “The story behind '110' is that Samra, Capi and I partly work with the same producer. And Samra and Capi told our producer that they somehow celebrate my music and that they would love to have a feature with me on their new album. " [2]

In contrast to the previous single releases from Berlin Lives 2, which were announced several days in advance , 110 was only announced about an hour before the release on Capital Bra's Instagram account. [3] The song came on the same day as Bushido's previously-announced big comeback song Ronin out and therefore had a particularly explosive, not least because the two singles in a direct duel for the highest new entry in the German single charts faced. [4] In January 2019 to Capital Bra and Samra separated from Bushido's label Ersguterjunge . [5]On the day of the official separation, Capital issued a minute-long statement. In it he reported for the first time about police protection that Bushido received. [6] He threw his former label boss also cooperation with the police and betrayal of friends before and was disappointed by it. He ended the statement with “But we are not a team. Police are your team now ”. Since then, there have been taunts from Capital against Bushido in this regard. At the end of August, Bushido first announced that he was working on a new album. In an Instagram post he wrote "Do you also think that it is enough with LaLaLa and LeLeLe?", Which was understood as an allusion to a diss against Capital Bra, which was for the frequent use of Adlips like Leleleis known. [7]

The reasons for the dispute remain unclear.
