Beverly Hills, CA (TYGEREYE ENTERTAINMENT) - While Jonathan Rotem's work sizzled on the charts this Spring
with Lil Kim's "Whoa" and 50 Cent's "Best Friend
" remix with Olivia, it was the slow burn of Rihanna's "SOS (Rescue Me)
" that is now the fire-hot Summer anthem.
After 12 weeks on the Hot 100 chart, "SOS" jumped to the No 1 spot in May, making it the second biggest leap to No 1 in Billboard history. After enjoying a three-week stint at the top of the Hot 100, the song hit No 1 on the Pop 100 chart. "SOS" is currently No 5 on both charts.
Needless to say, J.R.'s magic touch is in demand more than ever, and his list of Summer releases is mind boggling. His track "In Love With The Moula" on Mobb Deep's new Blood Money LP dropped in May, and his song with Lil Eazy on the Waist Deep Soundtrack hits stores in June.
In July, Rotem's production can be found on albums from Obie Trice, Mya, Penelope and LeToya Luckett. More tracks follow on projects from Tha Dogg Pound, Paris Hilton and pop sensation JoJo in August.
