Currently enjoying pop and R&B/hip-hop chart success with Enrique Inglesias’ “Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)/Dimelo” and Chris Brown’s “Wall to Wall,” Sean “The Pen” Garrett has more to come. He’s just finished up sessions with Britney Spears and is also working on songs for Usher, the Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger, Keyshia Cole and Ashlee Simpson.
Of his collaboration with Spears, he notes, “I’ve got this one record I’ve been holding for 10 months that everyone has tried to buy, but I stayed with Britney on it. I guarantee it will shake up the world. It’s uptempo, out of control … it’s wowzers, produced by me and Bloodshy. I can’t give the title yet, but the record is done and definitely what people want to hear from her.”
Despite a songwriting resume that includes Usher’s “Yeah!” and Brown’s “Run It,” Garrett — who in May shared BMI songwriter of the year kudos with fellow songwriter Kara DioGuardi — says he’s still at the learning stage.
“Winning songwriter of the year made me feel like, wow, I’ve accomplished something. But I’m not a person who feels he knows everything. Now I’m getting the opportunity to really start writing incredible records. And it’s not about making money. I don’t do it for that. I grew up loving music. This is my dream.”
