Daily Demos: Unknown – "Figure It Out", The Writing Camp [?] – "Rock Bottom" [Track Masters?], The-Dream – "Greatest X." [C. "Tricky" Stewart] [Janet]

Although this track was tagged as Teairra Mari, I definitely know her voice and this isn’t her. However, I decided to post anyway as its fantastic. The production by Votron (whoever that is) sounds like something Timbaland would do (see JF’s Brandy demo “Home”) with its muted strings and echoing heavy drum beat. The vocals are very Ciara-esque and this would have been perfect for her project, matching the mood of tracks like “Keep Dancin’ On Me” and “Ciara To The Stage” totally.

The next demos’ singer and credits are definitely up for contention too as I’m just following the original tags but they do seem a bit random to be wrong/fake. The track itself is decent, if a little formulaic with its soft piano-lounge style production and stripped down vocals but if it is TWC its definitely not their best work after a track record of banging tracks like “Right Here (Departed)” and “Don’t Think Twice” and an even more established catalogue from the Track Masters including their most recent amazing tracks for Keyshia Cole’s “A Different Me” album.

The-Dream demo is simply for collection purposes only for me as I hated the original track and think him and Tricky completely failed Janet with this track out of all the banging tracks they could have given her. [like anything from the Electrik Red album]
