The release of God Did has music fans once again debating the role of producers. DJ Khaled’s star-studded album arrived in all its early morning glory (August 26), and it’s been in heavy rotation ever since. Hip Hop dissects every song with precision, especially Jay-Z’s stellar appearance on the title track that blew fans out of the water.

Recently, Calvin Harris achieved a similar feat with his Funk Wav Bounce Vol 2 version that may have settled into a different genre, but it still packs a punch with its list of hitmaker features.

God made reignited conversations about producers, and on Twitter, one user asked, “I always wonder how DJs like Khaled and Calvin Harris make bread. Like all their songs, they’re other artists. Just revenue from production ?”

Harris caught wind of the matter and used it as a teachable moment by explaining that his money just did just about everything behind the scenes.

“Because I write, produce, mix, play all the instruments and sometimes the voice,” he said. “We found love, Summer, Feel so close for example 100% edition because I did it all. The only reason I got the Frank Ocean feature is because he said we found love was one of his favorite songs. I wrote that song.”

There’s a lot to learn about the ins and outs of producing, creating beats, publishing, and owning music rights. Revisit both God made and Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2 below.
