25-year old Memphis producer Cody Jordan Fayne, aka ThankGod4Cody, has gotten recognition this week for his work as a producer on SZA’s multiplatinum CTRL, which is up for multiple Grammy awards in 2018. In an interview with Billboard, Jordan tells how he went from a Memphis schoolkid performing at school talent shows, to producing the most nominated woman artist at the 2018 Grammy Awards. (SZA is up for Best New Artist, Best R&B Song, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and for two ThankGod4Cody productions, Best R&B Performance for “The Weekend”, and Best Rap/Sung Performance for “Love Galore”).
When asked about his 2018 goals, Jordan said, “I’m focused on becoming a better songwriter, better artist, and I’m also focused on developing some of my own artists I have right now back home in Memphis. I also would love to get on the next Beyoncé album. I already know it’s going to be legendary, so I’m shooting for the sky.”
