Sean Garrett Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Beyonce "Ring the Alarm" (2007)

Album: B'Day
Producer: Swizz Beatz, Beyonce Knowles
Label: Columbia, Music World
Sean Garrett: " On 'Ring the Alarm' it was angry and I just trying to challenge Beyonce. I feel like she challenged me so I challenged her and tried to give her something. She always made me feel very comfortable. It's trying different ideas and you never really knew what she was thinking so I just imagine what she was thinking if things went south, just in general.

"What if things went south? How would she react? How would she feel? As a person, you think of that artist who has it together so what if she didn't? That was the perspective. What if someone did make her vulnerable and eased up on her, her thing? How would that make her feel?"
