From Rihanna to Skrillex, Sam Dew has written songs for a who's who of the Billboard Hot 100. So, while you may be hearing his name for the first time now, you're likely already familiar with his work. Now however, Dew is making the transition from songwriter to artist with his debut EP Damn Sue (April 7), a six track alternative soul record that was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek

Recently, Dew stopped by the Complex office to talk about why you (yes, YOU!) should fuck with his new project. He also touched on what it's been like to work with Rihanna, Usher, and Wale. Check it out.
