Wiz Khalifa And Taylor Gang Turn To A Legendary Soul Singer For Inspiration

The title is a nod to the late legendary soul singer Isaac Hayes, whose song "Never Gonna Give You Up" provides some inspiration for the Taylors. Hayes's 1971 track included the lines, "Never gonna give you up / No matter how you treat me / Never gonna give you up / So don't you think of leaving."
