Stewart co-wrote and produced two songs on Ciara’s third album “Fantasy Ride” in the shape of “Keep Dancin’ on Me” and “Like a Surgeon.” He also served as executive producer for her fourth studio collection, “Basic Instinct.”

His extensive resume includes additional works for Rihanna (“Umbrella”), Beyonce (“1+1”), Mariah Carey (“Obsessed”), Nicole Scherzinger (“Your Love”), Celine Dion (“Skies of L.A.”) and Tamar Braxton (“Stay and Fight”).

For the highly-anticipated new project, the “Overdose” star has reportedly teamed with Dr. Luke, Rock City, Henry “Cirkut” Walter, Polow Da Don, Mike Will Made It, Kenneth “Soundz” Coby, Diane Warren and Harmony Samuels.
