In 2006 I wrote a song called Lies Girls Tell. I didn't know how to produce beats (I didn't learn 'til 2008,) so the song sat around in my notebook until I received an instrumental that fit it well. After I recorded the song I ran into a little problem... the producer hated it. I reluctantly decided to go back to the drawing board. As time passed and I learned to produce my own music, I completely forgot about this tune...until yesterday when I found my old iPod.
I think this song would be great for licensing to tv shows. The songs I've written that are similar to it have done pretty well with getting placements. Since Matt (my co-producer) and I are currently working on my new project we don't have time to revisit this song. So I'm hoping to find a producer who can make a kick ass track for it.
Download the acapella, make a dope ass beat (please lay the acapella over your track,) and send me a link to your version of the song at firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on April 3, 2012. PLEASE MAKE A BEAT THAT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE ABOVE, we don't wanna rip off that producer's work. Gimme something that you think sounds like...well...something that sounds like Nikki Lynette!
My fans and I will choose the winner on April 3, 2012.
If you aren't a producer but you happen to know one who rocks, please share this post with them. I don't care about the producer's prior experience or whether or not they have had placements before, just trying to find someone who's talented and awesome. If you have any questions, comments, or questionable comments, hit me on my Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from y'all!
