He told MTV that he will mix his hip-hop background with her pop sensibilities on the album, creating a "global" sound. The producer said:
"I'm bringing my world to her world, so I'm infusing what I do in hip-hop and bringing pop elements to it. So it's just going to be a global sound."
He continued: "We've just been throwing ideas back and forth so far. So I can't really put a number on it or anything but it's coming together. I mean Britney, she's amazing. She's been around for years and she's gonna to continue to do her thing. I wanted to just show people that I'm not just a hip-hop producer, that I'm not just an urban world [and] that I'm just a music maker in general. When she reached out it [was] so perfect to make it happen. We went in the studio and started making some ideas already. It's coming out nice, so I'm excited about that."
