Sean Garrett has a whole lot to be proud of. The Atlanta singer, songwriter and producer has impressively penned big-time hits for Usher (“Yeah!”), Fergie (“London Bridge”) and Beyoncé (“Upgrade U”). But his latest collaboration with Meek Mill is what has him most excited now.
“We’re making the new Dreamchasers/ Bet I Penned It collaboration,” Garrett told MTV News. “Me and Meek Mill are just forming a new company and forming a new movement. We’re coming together and doing a new label deal together.”
Ever since he released his debut album, Dreams and Nightmares, last year, Meek has been establishing his Dreamchasers label, signing new artists like Lee Mazin, Louie V Gutta and R&B singer Jordanne. He also signed 18-year-old rapper Lil Snupe, who was shot and killed last month.
“Me and Meek are just two people who really connected on a personal level, having the same mentality and coming from nothing,” Garrett said. “We watched [Jay-Z] and watched people like Diddy create these dynasties with music and branding and breaking artists and building mega corporations.”
Now the pair have linked up for one common goal and have already started to work on building the new artists in their collective stable. With Meek’s raw street appeal and Garrett’s hitmaking ability, the pairing makes for a most interesting combination.
“We’re really, really excited about the new Dreamchasers/ Bet I Penned It situation. It’s going to be huge,” Garrett said.
