The “Leavin’” singer has been in the studio recording his fourth LP with producer-songwriter Sean Garrett, who he previously worked with on 2008’s Departure, including the single “How Do You Sleep?” “I’m doing three joints for Jesse on his new album and we got some really, really good **** already,” Garrett tells Rap-Up.com. “I’m really excited about that.”
The 22-year-old heartthrob has developed a more R&B sound since his solo debut six years ago. “He’s growing up on this record. I think what’s great about Jesse McCartney is that he definitely has a great voice,” says Garrett. “He could really do whatever he wants to do if he’s just produced well because he has an exceptional voice and he’s poised to really come into his own with this album. If that remains to be the focus, then he’s definitely gonna win.”
Although he doesn’t have any problems when it comes to the opposite sex, the hitmaker helped the ladies man elevate his game. “I gave him some swag, not corny swag ****. I wanted to give him real songs, but also give him some **** that has some real swag to it. Girls will be like, ‘Damn, I need to call up Jesse. He’s somebody I need in my life.’ And not just from a corny pop perspective, the Mr. Cool song, but more so like, ‘Damn, I need to see dude.’”
Fans will be seeing a lot more of Jesse McCartney when the project drops later this year.
