No longer content with crafting hits for artists such as Monica Brown and Usher, music producer Rico Love is going the route of other music producers-turned-artists. Love’s first attempt at recording a solo album was in 2007. Crooner Usher Raymond, who signed the 31-year-old songwriter to his US Records, encouraged Love to stick to what he knows best: songwriting and producing. But Love didn’t listen.
Today, Love released the new music video for his hit single “He Got Money” featuring Ciara‘s baby daddy, Future on auto-tunes. Watch the video after the break.
The Dream’s 5th studio album, IV Play, is a resounding failure, no thanks to you fickle fans who failed to run out and buy it.
Terius Nash, 35, released IV Play on May 28. Despite guest appearances by his close friends Beyonce, Jay Z and Kelly Rowland, the album landed at #16 on the charts, selling only 20,000 units in first week sales.
Nash penned hit songs for Beyonce (“Single Ladies”, “Love on Top”), Justin Bieber (“Baby”) and Rihanna (“Umbrella”).

A songwriter claims Keys stole elements of a song he wrote in 1962. Maybe Keys thought no one would notice the similarities between her single and a song written before she was born?
