"We've put down a few ideas, but we don't know how many will end up on there. They have a very special way of working. A song is never done until the day before it comes out almost, so you never know," Contactmusic quoted RedOne as saying.

We were just like musicians jamming. I loved it," Billboard.com quoted RedOne as saying.
