After writing Beyoncé’s “If I Were a Boy”, BC Jean was snatched up by Clive Davis and signed to J Records. Ryan Tedder produced her debut single, “Just a Guy”, co-written by BC Jean and The Matrix. Lyrically, the song has an almost similar theme to “If I Were a Boy”, but with a more positive, careless spin. I would have never guessed Ryan produced this, as it sounds nothing like most of his other work. However, he seems to be gravitating towards a more dance/pop/rock style with some of his more recent productions. I think this could be a hit if promoted correctly. BC has a pretty distinctive voice and she’s a great songwriter. Supposedly she’s also working with Max Martin and Howard Benson on her debut–definitely something I’m going to keep my eye on. Check out two of her other new songs here.
