Hypnotico

Songfacts®:

  • Lady Gaga and her frequent collaborator RedOne co-wrote both this dancehall-tinged tune and "Invading My Mind" for Jennifer Lopez' Love? album. The Moroccan producer told Billboard magazine how they penned material for the Latin songstress: "We sat down with her, had dinner and talked about where she is at now, what her image is. The thing that grabbed me is that she said, 'I'm a dancer first.' And we were like, 'Yes, Jennifer Lopez has got to have dance music. She started as a dancer.' So of course I had to make her move. She's incredibly happy with her family and her husband, and she's so inspiring - it was easy to make music with her."
