Written by Johan Carlsson, Rami Yacoub, Sofia Carson, Steph Jones and Tia Scola
Produced by Rami Yacoub and Matthew Engst

Really love this one, for some reason Rami is credited as "Rami for MXM Productions" which is a nice little detail but kinda odd to keep consistency on the database because you can search him on Tidal as Rami Yacoub, just Rami and that.

I'm surprised: Skrillex? Sabrina Claudio? Labrinth? AG Cook? Honey Dijon?

Curtis Alan Jones is a DJ and produced known as Green Velvet.
Moi Renee? She was a drag queen in the 90s who released a couple song and one of those is called "Miss Honey".
Donna Summer+Giorgio Moroder+Peter Bellote? That's a Donna Summer sample.

It's too many writers and producers to list them all.
I don't like the song, although I think I don't like Beyoncé at all, the hook is fine.

modern songwriting in a nutshell right here folks. A more truer example of too many cooks in the kitchen

You didn’t say anything racist, transphobic, or anti-Semitic. Congrats!

Don't be surprised. Very likely 100% of these songs on the Beyonce album were picked by the record label after they were presented to them as demos. This practice happens especially with A list artists such as Beyonce and Rihanna. There are actually lists of the record labels where they communicate to writers what type of songs they want to place with their artist so you can adjust your demo to their demands.
Hi, I'm Luke and I'm sitting on my throne! Oh, and have you noticed that Denniz PoP songs are extremely hooky?

I mean, she is the curator of her project. She chooses collaborators through her A&R team and guides the process I think.

Or am I being way too romantic?

I don't know the ins and outs of her specific project, but what I presume is that she gets to hear a bunch of demos which were selected by A&R and then picks what appeals to her emotionally. When the record gets done, it is presented to the label and they give it a go or not (see beyonce documentary of I am sasha fierce or its succesor I believe). If they don't give it a go, they might force certain songs on you or the album won't get released. This also happened with Ed Sheeran on the album with Shape of You. If there was no record label involved, shape of you wouldn't have been on the album - and probably wouldn't even exist as we know it now - but the record label insisted on a rhythmic song like that one or else the album would be too dry. This is documented in the documentary on that album.

But these are established artists. I don't think any recording artist with the same status as Britney Spears had in 1999 has more than limited influence on the songs on the album if they are marketed big time by the label.

How do record labels check if something is ready for release? Do they want every song to be good? No, there are singles and there are fillers. Fillers are unimportant songs and as far as the quality is medium and it falls within the concept of the whole, it is likely to be acceptable for release. They can let rihanna work on a song here and there but they won't end up being the singles cause of lack of quality (i mean, most artists are not max martin, steve mac, mutt lange or greg kurstin). Depending on how many singles the label likes to release (nowadays it's mostly 2 singles, back in the days 5 was more common), they check if there are songs that can deliver as a single. If there are enough songs with that potential + acceptable fillers, you are ready for release.

When listening to new music I barely listen to fillers - often i despise them - but just focus on the singles. There is much more to learn in listening to singles which are picked by a bunch office guys who believe that these songs have a chance of climbing the charts.
