The rumor is that new music from Lady Gaga is coming later this year, and producer RedOne did nothing to quell that speculation.
“Yes, let’s hope,” the GRAMMY Award winning producer responded when I brought up said rumor recently. “Yeah, let’s see what happens. We did eight songs so far and we’ll see what happens, yunno?”
Red, as his friends call him, has also been in the studio with Kaya Stewart and Enrique Iglesias. The latter artist is featured on the producer’s new single, “Don’t You Need Somebody.”
“I sent it to Enrique with two other songs,” he explained of how the track came to feature the singer. “He got the three songs but for some reason, he did not hear (‘Don’t You Need Somebody’).”
It wasn’t until the two linked up for a session in Miami that Iglesias heard the song. And that’s literally all it took for the artist to want to contribute to it. Iglesias immediately asked if he could jump on the song, and of course Red obliged.
Shaggy, who is also featured on the track, became involved in a similar fashion. During a music meeting Red simply played him the song.
“He was like, ‘Red put the mic on right now!’” recalled the producer of how Shaggy reacted after he heard the beat. “’Put the mic on!’”
Serayah and R. City, who of course scored a big hit last year with “Locked Away,” also added their vocals to the final product.
