In the spirit of my upcoming collaboration (with an AMAZING producer from L.A – who will remain a secret until we wrap up recording!) I’ve been inspired to upload a selection of my faaaave collaborations from the past couple of decades!
Teaming up with different artists/producers/DJs is the best way to challenge yourself & get inspired… and I haven’t been this excited about a song in a long time.
While I don’t wanna give too much away, think along the lines of:
chill, pop x RnB, drake, girl vs. boy, and a touch of naughty miley sneaking in there… 😉
In the meantime, here are the artists who have paved the way!
DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT – SNOOP DOGG FT. PHARRELL WILLIAMS
(13 year old me fell in love with Pharrell the moment I heard this)
IF WE EVER MEET AGAIN – TIMBALAND FT. KATY PERRY
(the best part is watching the hilarious face that Timby’s pulls randomly throughout the video)
DILEMMA – NELLY FT. KELLY ROWLAND
(the ultimate song that represented every teenager’s feelings in 2002)
DEUCES REMIX – CHRIS BROWN, DRAKE, T.I, KANYE WEST, FABOLOUS, ANDRE 3000
(i know this isn’t the typical collaboration, but try not feeling f*cking thug when you listen to it. Andre 3000 kills it)
DIRRTY – CHRISTINA AGUILERA FT. REDMAN
(i wasn’t yet a teenager when this song came out but my friends & I probably worried our parents a fair deal by copying Xtina’s dance moves)
TELEPHONE – LADY GAGA FT. BEYONCE
(if only for the insane video clip with approx. 50 brand endorsements)
I’M AFRAID OF AMERICANS – DAVID BOWIE FT. NINE INCH NAILS
(Bowie + Brian Eno + NIN = suit up shit just got real)
GOLD DIGGER – KANYE WEST FT. JAMIE FOXX
(you can’t not like this song!)
