When I first heard California Gurls, I noticed the 8bit synth and simple electro pop kick snare pattern. It immediately reminded me of TiK Tok. So after looking up the producers, it turns out the both Ke$ha and Katie Perry hired Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco. These two have also produced some other notable smash singles for Katie Perry “I Kissed a Girl”, Britney Spears “Circus”, and Ke$ha “Blah Blah Blah.
Expect to hear more of these electro pop producers soon. They’re topping the charts on billboard.com.
…and heres the evidence that could be heard in court…a mashup of the two tracks proving they are one of the same.
