Sam Hunt recently shared in an interview why name dropped Toronto in his new song, “Outskirts.”

Hunt says that as he’s working on a song, he likes to get on the microphone with the music playing, and he “scats” out the bones of the song.

“Sometimes it’s mumbled, and it makes no sense,” says Hunt. The Toronto lyric came from one of those freestyling moments.
