RedOne hits the island

Announces First Reggaeton Tour to kickstart in Bahrain

What was supposed to be just a five-minute meeting with an emerging artist ‘Stefani Germanotta’ who was changing labels at the time, quickly escalated to 5 hours of sharing ideas and then heading to the studio to put many of her songs from her debut album in writing. That artist was Lady Gaga and the man who played a major role in bringing her hits like “Just Dance,” “Poker Face”, and “LoveGame’ to life, was RedOne, an inspiring figure who Weekender was fortunate to have met recently, and interacted with, at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain.

One of the top writer/producers in pop, dance and hip-hop, known for co-writing & producing several smash hits for Lady Gaga, he has also created hits for Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull and others. Having won multiple Grammy awards, including titles like BMI Songwriter of the Year and Billboard #1 Producer, the down to earth maestro of a multitude of talents still holds the same charisma and passion as his 19-year-old version, who had left his home country Morocco for Sweden, so as to unravel his talent and make it onto the global musical platform. Having done that and so much more on his fascinating journey, he has now come to Bahrain for a short visit, announcing his Reggaeton Tour which will soon kick off in the Middle East, starting in Bahrain.

As he rightfully puts it- success comes when your passion aligns with perfect timing!
