When we asked Jeffrey Gaines in 2011 if "Always Be" is about a real person, he confirmed for us that it was. As for who that person is and how their relationship worked out, Gaines replied: "She and Tom Brady seemed to have worked out just fine."
Tom Brady, the famous quarterback for the New England Patriots, married the supermodel Gisele Bündchen in 2009. So while Brady has won three Super Bowls and two league MVP awards, he's unlikely to deliver anything as moving as what Gaines tells her in the closing lyrics: "You will always have this song, you will see, you and me will always be."
Always Be was Gaines' fourth album, which in the United States was released on Artemis Records. It renewed interest in Gaines thanks to the inclusion of two popular cover songs: "In Your Eyes" and "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."
Will.I.am, literally dreamt up "I Gotta Feelin'." Said the Black Eyed Pea: "Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that! 'I Gotta Feelin' was one of those songs."
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
