It's funny how you put all of redones mediocre productions.. What about his huge hits with gaga? A la BR and pokerface? Or songs like starships, on the floor.
"Starships" sounds like Dr. Luke production, funnily enough, and RedOne productions are massively mediocre. Luke is the more diverse producer, completely superior, but with new acts like these I doubt he'd invest time to give them anything substantial.
(That number was enhanced by Amazon MP3's decision to sell the set for 99-cents for two days during its first week. Billboard has estimated that Amazon MP3's 99-cent version resulted in 440,000 copies sold.)
I prefer Luke as a producer, but RedOne was ultimately a beter choice for this chick. Better suited to her voice. The dark-pop sound kind of reminds me of the gothic, monsterish stuff he did with Gaga. Luke's sound is too bubblegum for the type of artist she is.
another lady gaga copy cat what's so special about her nothin and I am sick of this kind of music at least offer something new
“Certain artists are more of a marketing concept where you’re buying into a lifestyle or a look, or a lyrical statement, or a fashion statement. Other artists are there because of pure musical excellence. The heavens opened and poof: Bruno Mars. He’s not a marketing concept. He’s a real deal.”
It's true RedOne probably isn't as versatile. I am so ****ing here for Mannequin Factory but I get Judas AND Scheisse teas from it (the few songs produced by Red on BTW). The song should be her breakthrough hit though, it sounds so good
