"If you record a song that I wrote don’t lie and say you wrote it."
The presence of the "ghostwriter" continues to cast a greater and greater shadow over the industry as time advances, but Starrah wants no parts in the title.
The songwriter and producer recently stepped onto the Internet to make known her distaste any lack in recognition and it's certainly recognition the Los Angeles-based artist deserve considering her hand in smashes like Drake's "Fake Love," Camila Cabello's "Havana," and Rihanna's "Needed Me" among countless others.
"For future reference; artists if you record a song that I wrote don’t lie and say you wrote it," she penned in a Tweet. "Don’t make a fake creation story and don’t make a fake meaning up for it. That’s corny."https://twitter.com/_/status/1082672509110038528
"I’m just making it clear for anybody who has any questions about how I operate," she adds. "I’m a professional songwriter and producer. At the end of the day it’s about mutual respect."
The strife of those who assume their position in the background within the music industry is certainly no secret, and Starrah's recent remarks only further underscore the delicacy that should be applied when tossing around props to our favorite artists. In recent times, though, we've seen an onset of talent who have stepped out of the sole songwriter's role to pursue a viable career of their own and the results have been promising to say the least (see: Asiahn, Pink $weats, Lucky Daye, Tayla Parx, Arin Ray etc...).
