Singer/songwriter/producer Sean Garrett has been responsible for creating hits like Usher's "Yeah," Beyonce's "Ring The Alarm" and Ciara's "Goodies." But it doesn't mean the hit-making machine hasn't had some blunders along the way as well.
Last year, Nicki Minaj released what was then dubbed her first single, a track titled "Massive Attack," produced by Garrett. But the track failed to meet radio and chart expectations, and eventually was dropped entirely from Minaj's debut album, "Pink Friday."
According to Garrett, the success -- or lack thereof -- of the track was "out of my control. I was only able to do as much as I was allowed to do. Sometimes you have to step back and get off the wheel," he says. "I didn't have control of the entire creative process. A lot of [other] artists trust me enough and allow me to do what I know is best to do as a producer."
