One of the producers of Madonna’s new album, Nate ‘Danja’ Hills, has discussed the recording process of the superstar‘s new collection, saying that Madonna would "just vibe with us" during production sessions.
The new as-yet-untitled album – due for release later this year - includes collaborations with some of the biggest names in the music business, including Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Pharrell Williams.
Hills spoke with Rolling Stone magazine about the album, revealing that the material mom "wanted uptempo, dance, club [sounds]" and wanted "everything to have a hip-hop underlining." The first single, he added, is set to be a duet with Timberlake called ’4 Minutes To Save The World’.
The producer revealed that the production team spent long hours in a London studio getting the sound right, but said Madonna was easy-going and willing to put in the hard yards.
"She would come in and sit in her chair in the corner, and just vibe with us," Hills said.
