I Hope Usher Didn’t Pay For This Out of His Own Pocket

Thanks to Mr. Lowe (who pointed to AHM) for bringing this up in the comments yesterday. The enterprising young man in the video that follows demonstrates that Polow Da Don's beat for Usher's "Love in This Club" (just typing that song title sent my side-eye to Mexico) is part of GarageBand software as stock. And is it any wonder? Remove the high-profile names associated with the track and what do you have? I own a nice pale pink button-down that could've come from any designer, but it's only until you look at the tag that you know it's by Sean John. But it's not like Diddy himself sewed the buttons on. The point is, when you really begin to boil down these #1 hits, all you have is a bunch of hype and very little effort. Although, if it's revealed that this is all a hoax, I'll concede by penning an apology to Polow on this very site. Maybe. All Polow, All the Time™.

  1. I think Usher just got Punk'd! Polow makin' ends off some already preprogrammed Garageband loops.

  2. That's nothing! Rihanna's "Umbrella" beat is a stock loop from GarageBand.
    Just go and check for yourself.

  3. Dang...smh...I'm a producer now.

  4. One might consider it wack but it's legal. I believe Garageband stock loops are royalty free.
    I remember when Swizz Beats jacked an entire Roland horn preset for Ruff Ryders' "Down Bottom". He's come a long way since then.

  5. This is the same kind of ish that gave us Soulja Boy.
