Speaking to Sportsmax following the release of the video, D-Major revealed the story behind the latest track "Unstoppable" and how his journey with the 36-year-old athlete paved the way for the partnership.

"Now that phone just crashed, and I lost the melody," he lamented, "I was reasoning with a brethren one day, and I was giving him the idea, and he was like, 'yow, all Bolt you could have linked on that, you know.' And I said, 'You know, you’re right.'"
