Last month, Britney Spears caught everyone’s attention with the feisty “Work Bitch,” including her “SMS” songwriter/producer, Sean Garrett. He was so impressed that he’s begging Britney’s executive producer will.i.am to let him in on her December 3 album release .
“I definitely got my eyes set on it. will.i.am, wow I mean, I’m a big fan of will.i.am as well. But this first single, man, that ’Work Bitch’ is crazy. will, you got to let me in on this, G,” Garrett pleaded when he stopped by the MTV News offices earlier this week. “I just got a call from will’s camp, so it looks good. You know what I’m saying? I just got to turn up, turn up one of them magical things.”
He continued, “I mean she just completely shut it down with this first single. I think she just took the world by storm with this first single, see. I’m not one of those producers or songwriters who hate. When it’s right man, it’s right and I ain’t even trying. I ain’t messing with the cake.”
Despite showing love to “Work Bitch,” he does really want the chance to show the world what he can “turn up” for the singer. Before working on Miley Cyrus’ “SMS” with Spears, he also produced her Blackout track “Toy Soldier” and worked with her on 2009’s Circus.
“I got to go in my bag and pull out one of those monster records, which is gonna happen,” he said, adding, “When it’s right at that point, I’m just like, ’Yo, respect. Let me get in and do my thing, so I can get in this car.’ And that’s the thing about being successful, you have to know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em. You can’t just always think it’s about you. It’s about Britney right now. It’s about will.i.am.”
