Jens Christian Liven Isaksen from Bergen is co-producer of the song and has been tasked with selling the star’s new record.
For some, release means a strong star in the biography.
This applies, for example, to Jens Christian Levin Isaksen (45), a Bergen native who lives in Oslo.
He works as a music producer and is listed as a co-producer on the song “Break My Soul”.
– It’s great, of course, Isaksen tells VG.
He says he works closely with Christopher Alan “Tricky” Stewart, one of America’s biggest hit makers in the last two decades, and one of Beyoncé’s regular collaborators.
– Then there will be results, Isaacsen notes.
According to him, they have been playing with “Break My Soul” for a few years now.
– Then it finally became a Beyoncé song, he laughs.
The producer says it works mostly online, although there are some flights to Atlanta and Los Angeles.
The star who has used his services now has not met Isaksen yet.
– I could have been more present in such situations, but I am more interested in programming and writing, along with Tricky.
I opened a door
“Break My Soul” is also the first single on the album, and has amassed 84 million Spotify plays since it was released on June 20.
The song topped the official charts in a number of countries, including number seven in the US and number four in the UK.
Isaacsen says that, for his part, he takes success with an overwhelming calm.
– I’m already in good heat, but it would also be a door-opener.
By the way, he’s not the first Norwegian to help Beyoncé up to the top levels of the charts.
In 2006, Norwegian mega duo Stargate and Espionage helped write and produce one of their biggest hits, “Irreplaceable,” along with R&B star Ne-Yo and Beyoncé herself.
Stargate consists of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, Spionage by Espen Lind and Amund Bjørklund.
