Boots On World Cafe


Jordy Asher, who goes by the name Boots, knows what it's like to work with high-profile artists: He's produced and written for musicians like FKA twigs and Run The Jewels. He didn't come into his own prominence, though, until his name was listed with many tracks on Beyoncé's self-titled 2013 album. Who was this newcomer contributing to hits like "Drunk In Love" and "Flawless"?

Boots has answered that question with an ongoing solo career and a couple of mixtapes, including this year's Motorcycle Jesus. On this episode of World Cafe, Boots discusses his work with Beyoncé and his rising solo career.
