You may not recognize [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]RedOne[/lastfm] if you walked past him on the street, but most people know his name because he’s the man behind most of Lady Gaga’s biggest hits.

Our morning show host, Carson Daly, chatted with the super producer on his late night show, Last Call with Carson Daly, and we’ve got the interview right here for you!

[pullquote quote="Just talking to her, I just felt this thing, you know? We wrote the first song called 'Boys, Boys, Boys' and the new sound was born that day. " credit="RedOne on working with Lady Gaga"]

Born in Morocco in a family of NINE kids, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]RedOne[/lastfm] definitely had a unique upbringing that molded him into the talented artist we know and love today. 

[It was] a very musical family.  Every day, it was a party!

His siblings would try to convince him to like certain artists like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm]. It wasn’t hard to get him on their side because [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]RedOne[/lastfm] enjoyed listening to all types of music:

I love everything because it’s good music! That’s why I’m trying to bring melodies and bring those big choruses and all that because of those “teachers.”

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]RedOne[/lastfm] sacrificed a lot to get to where he is today.  When he was 16, he moved to Sweden and could only afford to sleep on the floor of a restaurant that his friend worked at, but it certainly paid off. In fact, he had an instant connection the moment he met [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]:

Just talking to her, I just felt this thing, you know? She knows everything thing about music…All these names and songs. From Motley Crue to everything! I said, “Do you want to go in the studio?” From 5 minutes [meeting], we end up working the whole day! We wrote the first song called “Boys, Boys, Boys” and the new sound was born that day.

What’s next for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]RedOne[/lastfm]? His next single with Gaga, “Judas,” will be coming out soon and he promises that it will “shock” people.
