“I didn’t think it was going to be a record or anything. … The song took on a life of its own,” Parker explained.

Parker was only hired to create a song for a 20-second clip in the film and said he never imagined it would gain so much traction.

“I’m happy that it turned into what it turned into, but absolutely no idea, no clue that it could ever be this,” Parker admitted.

The Grammy-nominated musician additionally revealed he’s working on a new album, “Make America High Again.”

He discussed his decision behind the name of his project.

“For some reason, that just feels like the right thing to do. … I’d like to make America high again like we were in the ’60s … just back to that era where the country was pushing forward and going higher,” Parker told Fox News Digital.
