Rico Love Produced All Of These Hits And You Had No Idea

-By Chris Carpenter 

It’s time to get to know the elusive Rico Love – the man responsible for producing some of pop, hip-hop and R&B’s hottest tracks.  He grabbed our ears a few weeks back with an incredible remix of Disclosure’s “Latch,” but that’s just the latest triumph in a career that goes back over a decade. After catching the attention of the almighty Usher (insert praise hands emoji), Rico was brought on to contribute to the diamond-selling Confessions album in 2004, and he’s been on a roll ever since! From writing, producing and guesting for a slew of popular acts—yes, even Queen Bey!—Rico is skilled at cranking out hit after hit. Heck, he’s won Grammy Awards, people! No wonder he won the heart of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s Teairra Mari

So now, let’s show some love to the great Rico Love by taking a look at some of his biggest smashes.

On the chanty, sucrose-soaked pop anthem “Love Like This,” Natasha paid homage to never-ending, transcending love. Written and produced by Love, the colossal hit packed an extra punch of feel-good with a feature from the king of jolly, Sean Kingston.
