Ever wonder why you download a leaked song from an artist like James Fauntleroy or Keri Hilson etc and half the song is mumbling?

For those of you who're interested in the creative process of a Pop or R&B record, watch this video of Ryan Leslie creating his track "Gibberish".

As a songwriter/producer, my process almost identically parallels that in the video above, minus the little trumpet and abundance of keyboards. Almost all of my songs start with unintelligible syllables to form a melodic guide which I then fill in later with lyrics.
