Miami, May 4 (IANS/EFE) Singer-songwriter Nayer says she’s grateful to rapper Pitbull for putting her in a position to be recording an album with famed producer RedOne.
Nayer Regalado, a Cuban-American who grew up in Miami, told EFE that Pitbull gave her career a boost by including her on his hit single “Give Me Everything”.
“That was really a platform because it put me on the map. It was a No. 1 song worldwide,” she said of the Pitbull production, which also featured Ne-Yo and Afrojack.
The collaboration with “Mr. 305″ was followed by Nayer’s part in Enrique Iglesias’ single “Dirty Dancer (Remix)”, along with Usher and Li’l Wayne.
Nayer joined Pitbull and Iglesias for the “Euphoria Tour”, picked up four Latin Billboard Nominations and a contract with the rapper’s Mr. 305 Inc. label.
In between recording sessions, Nayer is promoting her first single, “Suave (Kiss me)”, featuring Pitbull and Mohombi. And her first complete album is taking shape under the guidance of Nadir Khayat, a.k.a. RedOne, a “legend” she feels “very fortunate” to be working with.
The Grammy winner has produced discs by Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Akon, Jennifer Lopez and Cher, among others.
