*The secret to getting good information in an interview is to ask good questions. It’s that simple. That’s what happened in a sitdown between Dallas Austin and Vlad TV.
In the interview, Vlad asked the producer of hits back in the day for a slew of artists including TLC and Boyz ll Men‘s first (multiplatinum) album, why he didn’t produce the Philadelphia based boy band’s subsequent project?
Like we said, ask a good question and you’ll get a good answer. Austin, who produced Boyz ll Men’s mega-hits “End Of The Road” and “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye,” says they were super-cocky “assholes” after finding success, making it hard to work with them on their second album. He said all they did was BRAG about their Rolexes and new money.
However, even though he didn’t want to do it, Motown head man, the late Jheryl Busby, convinced him to get back in the studio with the men. He did and he tells the story of Busby sending in Babyface to play them a reference track called “I’ll Make Love To You.” Well, we know how that turned out, but the backdrop is not as sweet, so to speak.
According to Dallas Austin, the singers were straight-up rude to Babyface, saying the song was “horrible” and they could do better. Check out his comments in the video at the top.
