Between her defunct sophomore album Sunday Love and the upcoming Joy, [artist id="1239307"]Fefe Dobson[/artist] has kept busy writing songs — for herself and some other familiar names.
“In between then [and now], I got to write for some other artists, which was cool, [like] Miley Cyrus and some others. That was fun!” she told MTV News. “That was fun, just to get to write. … All those experiences really helped me create the best record, for sure.”
And although she didn’t get to actually hit the studio with Cyrus, she thinks what the singer/actress did with the song “Start all Over” for Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus was “great.”
“I wrote a song, she dug it, and she sang it,” Dobson explained. “But I didn’t want it for my record. It just wasn’t right for me, and I just felt like it was better for someone else, and she does a great job on it. I was really impressed. She sounded great. I’m actually happier she did it than I did it.”
“American Idol” alum Jordin Sparks also nabbed a Dobson song , “Don’t Let It Go to Your Head,” and Fefe couldn’t be more pleased that Jordin put her own twist on the track.
“Jordin Sparks just did [that song], which was on Sunday Love, which was very cool,” she said. “She did kind of, like, a more R&B version of it, which I think is really nice, actually. It was really cool that she didn’t try and do a rock version of it, and she did what she’s more comfortable with, which I thought was awesome.”
