Invading My Mind

Songfacts®:

  • Lady Gaga co-wrote two songs for Jennifer Lopez' seventh studio album, Love? with her frequent collaborator RedOne - this song and "Hypnotico." Before becoming a "Fame Monster," Gaga was a songwriter, who was hired by Sony/ATV Music Publishing to write songs for Britney Spears, Fergie, and the Pussycat Dolls.
  • Jenny from the Block admitted to MTV News that she 'lucked out' with the Gaga/RedOne tracks. "I think RedOne's sound is very specific, but he also can be very individual for each artist that he works with, which I like, but there's still kind of a commonality in it," said Lopez. "But it's him. He makes a record sound so big and important ... When he would play me different tracks and even the beginnings of ideas and when he told me, 'Actually I worked with Gaga on this,' and I was like, 'Really? That's awesome. Is it OK?' and he [was] like, 'Yeah, yeah.' You know, they write and produce together a lot. So, it was exciting. I kind of just lucked out on that one."
