As a former artist, lemme just say we would’ve given our eye teeth to get big name producers to produce ONE TRACK on an album. Miley Cyrus is lucky enough get them all. Back in my day it was Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis or Narada Michael Walden or Teddy Riley and the list went on and on. We would sit back and covet the artists whose label would pay for them to do a track for their artist, while our record label (A&M) didn’t even know we had names other than Seduction. In the early ’00s it was all about The Neptunes and they were getting upwards of a million dollars per track. Producers in the late ’80s and early ’90s became stars and made as much as if not more than the artists themselves. Today it’s a bit different with the way the internet has changed the music biz. But one thing is for sure, Pharrell still garners a high wage for his genius services. Plus, he’s cute. Miley has the bills to snag him for a track or two on Bangerz, which she smartly did. Most of what Pharrell touches turns to platinum (ask Robin Thicke). As you can see, we have Nicki Minaj and Mike Will up in that piece too. She is gunning for hardcore success on this album; let’s hope it works.
