He’s the creative genius behind 50 Cent‘s ‘My Life’ and The Throne‘s ‘Murder To Excellence’, but for Pop lovers- it’s Beyonce‘s ‘Best Thing I Never Had‘ that Symbolyc One may be most renown for.
Only right then, that as the ‘Satelites’ singer readies the release of her fifth studio album, One stands as one of the many producers reported to have signed on to help craft it.Array
Now peep what he had to say on the matter in an exclusive interview with That Grape Juice. Net below!
On the chart topper, he explained:
“I met Beyonce while working with Kanye and Jay out in London and Australia on the Watch The Throne album. Creatively we bonded and she loved my work. That led to her asking me to fly out to New York at the top of the year to work on her album with her. January 2nd of 2011 I got that call to fly out to work with Bey.
My co-producer Caleb McCampbell and I went out there and created about 4-5 songs with Bey and “Best Thing I Never Had” was one of the ones that stuck. Then my fam Shea Taylor (who was lead producer on “4”) came in and polished the record up and it became Beyonce’s 2nd single from her album.”
“I can definitely say she’s already got a few joints from me for her new project. However, I’m not sure of her direction or where she’s trying to take it creatively this go round. Guess no one will really know till it drops (laughs).”
