Title: R City - What dreams are made of (Dr Luke)
Post by: kjdrapeau on September 23, 2015, 08:03:30 AM
I was able to hear the rcity album a couple weeks ago at a private session, great album. It's a great blend of their calypso/island vibe and pop elements. Their second single will be the record with chloe. They have one with akon that may take off as well. Theron and timothy are some genuine dudes and crazy talented. I'm a producer here in atlanta and have had the pleasure of being involved in their camp

I like that song. Well done Dr Luke.
Is Core water popular in US? You can see a bottle shining like a holy grail in every damn video.

''Beyond music, Luke has investments in bottled water (Core Natural), a private business conference (Summit Series) and real estate: Under the guidance of Sony boss Doug Morris, he’s purchased four buildings in Los Angeles on Hollywood Boulevard, including the iconic Kress Building, for studio spaces and offices.''

Core Natural is not popular because it's very expensive.

And cheap stuff don't appear in videos.

Thanks for that but I knew Core water's Luke's investment, I was wondering if it's any successful. It's smart to have retirement plans in this business.

It's Arrowhead. One of the most common and popular brands of bottled water in LA.

Theron from Rock City co-wrote Lizzo & Cardi B's new single.



Written by Cardi B, Lizzo, Nate Mercereau, Ricky Reed, Theron Thomas of R. City, and TORAE
Produced by Ricky Reed

I love the song. Before I knew Ricky Reed produced it, some elements of the song actually reminded me of Mark Ronson a bit. And I know she was in the studio with him for this upcoming album.

I've seen some fan reaction criticizing the chorus for not popping off enough but I think it's great! I enjoy the misdirect of the chorus starting with instrumental only. It's something different we don't hear often in songs.

Not sure why but this one gives me Jessie J's burning up vibes.

I didn't like that much either. The mixing is a bit messy to my taste.
The brass and strings sounds cheap and I agree with the song not being catchy but I guess it's more about the message.

I love it too. Hopefully Tyson Trax will hear this and bring it to the next level on some Doja stuff
Title: Re: Chlöe - "Have Mercy" (Theron Thomas)
Post by: melodicmoonlight on September 10, 2021, 04:14:20 PM


Written by Chlöe, FnZ, Jeremy McIntyre, Mighty Mark, Murda Beatz, Nija, Theron Thomas of R. City, TT the Artist & UNIIQU3
Produced by BoogzDaBeast, Chlöe, FnZ, Joseph L’Étranger & Murda Beatz

Favorite parts are the background vocals from the second chorus on. Her voice is a little thin, a cross between Normani and Tinashe, with a little Beyoncé. Fun song tho
