RedOne said he produced eight songs for LG5, but the first release won't include his efforts.
RedOne recently admitted he's played a big role in Lady Gaga's forthcoming studio album, but as she continues work on the much anticipated LP with other superstar producers like Mark Ronson, Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker and BloodPop, the "Poker Face" mastermind is getting pushed aside.
In a new interview, RedOne, who is currently promoting his solo single "Don't You Need Somebody," says things are a bit up in the air.
"I don't know where she is musically or mentally right now," he said to French MCM, reports Gaga Daily. "We tried to recreate the magic together in the studio and I think we have some amazing songs, but then again, she's very busy. At some point, one of [the songs] was going to be the first single, but then it changed. I don't know what happened."
He went on to reminisce of simpler times working with Mother Monster.
"I met he before she was signed to a label," he said. "There was no pressure then and she did things without asking questions. After The Fame she became so famous and the circumstances were very different. It wasn't easy in the studio, there were always lots of people around. It became something else and I couldn't continue that way. I can't deny that the first two albums were magical. It was really easy. Working with many artist is easy, but with Gaga, it was something absolutely magical."
But if you thought there was any bad blood... think again.
There NO problem between me & @ladygaga ! I love her and I just got a message from her she loves me too!
MONSTERS PLEASE IGNORE!LOVE! RedOne
