Sean Garrett Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Jo Jo "The Way You Do Me" (2006)

Album: The High Road
Producer: Swizz Beatz
Label: Da Family, Blackground

Sean Garrett:"Jo Jo was one of those artists who I really thought was a big star. I just knew she was one record away from really exploding. For some reason I felt like she didn't get the looks that she deserved. I was a big fan of Jo Jo before working with her. It just seemed there was always something that was just pulling her back. I don't know what it is, she would sound great on records. There would always be something and it would just pull her back.

"She was really talented. I enjoyed working with her. I wanted to do different things with her voice. I wanted her to try different things and that's why we did 'The Way You Do Me.' It was about doing records that let you see yourself elevate and get out of the box that you've been in for a while. She has a R&B tone and a real R&B feel to her. I told her she could still keep it R&B but still do mainstream music that would show some dynamic."
