  • Sampled Up: "Here" is based off "Ike's Rap II" by the late Isaac Hayes, which was also sampled in Portishead's song "Glory Box". Amusingly, this was a meta case of Sampled Up to the producers of "Here" itself: producers Oak Felder and Pop Wansel argued about whether to sample Portishead or Isaac Hayes for the song before eventually realizing they were talking about the same thing.
  • Sleeper Hit: Her debut single "Here". It was released in April 2015, though didn't chart in any major country chart until about fall of that year. For example, in the United States, it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2015, though took almost six more months before reaching its peak of number five in February 2016.

How well does it match the trope?
