Coming Kings Vol. 6 – Bryan-Michael Cox

FACE CARD  Breathing new melodies into deflated careers may become Bryan-Michael Cox’s legacy. While he’s also produced hits for artists such as Usher and Bow Wow with Jermaine Dupri, it’s the Grammy-winning comebacks by Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige that have cemented his mark. At 26, he became the only producer with more consecutive No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 than the Beatles. Now 29, he’s ready for his next resuscitation: Whitney.

Producers and songwriters are easy targets because we’re not artists… We’re equated with the publishing and the points. We’re equated with the money.

I never looked at it like I was in J.D.’s shadow. I was paying my dues. He was the teacher, and I was the student. I did a lot of records outside of what I was doing with Jermaine, but the stuff we did together was so large. He taught me the formula to making a hit.

People ask me to write another “Be Without U,” and I think: “Why? Why do you want something that’s already been done?”

The one song I wish I had written
is “Lady of My Life” by Michael Jackson.
