The acclaimed producer of artists like Rihanna (SOS), Sean Kingston (Beautiful Girls), Leona Willis (Better in Time) started on Sonar recording software and still prefers it to ProTools
J.R. Rotem has hit the charts with a recognizable sound for his hip-hop clients.

He has produced mega hits Rihanna (‘SOS), Sean Kingston (‘Beautiful Girls’ and ‘Take You There’), Leona Lewis (‘Better In Time’), Iyaz (‘Replay’), Jason Derülo (‘Watcha Say’ ‘In My Head’), Nicki Minaj (‘Fly’), and others. Most of those hits were recorded using Sonar DAW software.
