“Her voice changes everything. I think she was able to craft for us, a more deep and personal aspect of the song” DIXSON said. “She’s very much like Serena and Venus (who) had a father who was very active in her life, so the parts of the song that feel most connected to the film, I attribute to her.”

He then broke down what it was like to produce music as well as songwriting. DIXSON plays eleven instruments and wheres many different hats in the studio. He explains he loves the whole process that comes with making music.

Now that his artistry has taken precedence, he says he is more likely to be the voice behind a beautiful set of lyrics he’s written as opposed to settling for a songwriting credit.

“The first two or three years of doing it professionally, I was like ‘if somebody bigger than me wants it, I’ll do that’, just so I can get established, just so I can be financially secure” DIXSON explained.”Now a days, I’m starting to take song back for myself — but I never have that conversation with Beyonce, she keeps everything I give her.” He joked.
