Lady Gaga/Beyonce Producer Launches Reality Series

Grammy award-winning songwriter/producer Rob Fusari — the man who helped discover Lady Gaga and has worked with artists from Britney Spears to Beyonce — reveals exclusively to Usmagazine.com that he is developing a TV docu-series that will chronicle artists he is working with as they rush to find musical stardom.

The show will feature an array of artists from different genres (electro-pop, rock, R&B, urban pop) and at different stages of their careers. The common thread? Each has the same dream: to share their music with the world and overcome every obstacle on the road to stardom.

NYC-based entertainment company Glowcast Ventures President Clay Mitchell, who is producing the project with Fusari, tells Us, "Rob has an undeniable eye for talent and a proven track record. Just as importantly, he has found performers who are not only immensely talented musically, but have dynamic, engaging personalities whose journeys we feel will translate into captivating television."

Fusari, who has produced/written seven No. 1 singles (including co-writing Gaga's smash "Paparazzi" off her Grammy-winning debut disc, The Fame, which he also executive produced), adds, "I will never forget the people who believed in me and gave me that one shot when I was first starting out. I have been truly blessed to have worked and continue working with dedicated and talented musicians and artists. For me to now be able to give another artist their 'shot' is the best feeling in the world."

Fusari has also worked with Will Smith, Adam Lambert and The Jonas Brothers. By Ian Drew for Usmagazine.com. To read more of Ian's blog, click here, and don't forget to follow him on Twitter

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
