'The Greatest Thing' producer RedOne has revealed to 'MTV News' the story behind the upcoming single.
Music producer RedOne, most famous for his work with Lady Gaga, has been talking to MTV News about the track.
He said "[Gaga and I] recorded the song a few years ago, and we were always in the studio enjoying that song. It's weird we never did anything with it. So I remember my management and Cher's management were trying to get us together, and I thought, 'Oh my God, I'd love to meet Cher, just to meet her!' And so I met her, I played her some songs, and I played her 'The Greatest Thing,' and she loved it. She said, 'This is my song,' I said, 'Yes, it's your song.' "
He continued, "I cut the vocals with Cher first, and I was in Madrid and got a text from Gaga saying, 'I'm thinking about jumping on the song in the remix,' I was like, 'No, you should jump on the original! Make it a duet.' She said, 'Oh yes, OK, absolutely,' and then I spoke to Cher, and it became a party."
He then said, "Everybody loved it, Gaga on it, Cher, two big icons, [they are] part of music history. So it happened. I'm very happy to be a part of this."
Of course, Cher revealed that the single was planned for release this month. However, an October release is more likely.
