Tallahassee native helps produce several songs on Beyoncé’s latest album

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — In the spring, we told you about Denisia “Blu June” Andrews, a Grammy-winning producer and songwriter from Tallahassee for her work with Jazmine Sullivan.

But her latest achievement is her work on eight of the sixteen songs on Beyoncé’s latest album, released last Friday.

Denisia Blu June Andrews has the accolades most would dream of. She’s a Grammy Award winner and has worked with top artists in the industry, but none are bigger than Queen B herself on her new album, Renaissance.

“It’s just super fulfilling. I’m so happy to be a part of it with someone of his caliber who trusts me and trusts Chi, my partner and then yes, I would do it again,” the writer said and award-winning producer Denisia Andrews.

Andrews says she had no idea how much work she had done on the album until its final release. And when she saw that she had helped produce eight of the sixteen tracks, she couldn’t believe it.

“It’s super hard to land one placement but place eight times and fifty percent of an album. I think I can congratulate myself and be proud of this moment,” Andrews said. “Because it’s the moment as a creative that you’ve been working towards and I know it’s going to open so many more doors. So I’m just a super excited guy.

His exploits are considered a source of inspiration for those close to him.

“Just to see her come from Tallahassee for one, but just to come from someone who just works a steady job and we used to do music in the studio and complain about jobs and say how we’d like being able to make music full time and you know she makes it happen,” said colleague and friend of Andrew, Glenn J. Hutchinson Jr.

Hutchinson says he and Andrews collaborated a lot during their time in Tallahassee and says her pure soul is what sets her apart.

“I am much deeper than his music. I mean she’s a musical beast too, but I think she’s as a regular person, she’s expressed that and her music, so it goes together,” Hutchinson shared.

Although Andrews thinks this moment is one of the highlights of her career, she says she wants to do so much more.

“I want to be a tycoon. I want to sign artists, I want to release music myself and maybe do some theater and you just know a bunch of stuff. So stay tuned, we’ll see,” assured Andrews.

Andrews continues to push forward with those who support her saying they pledge to always be by her side.

“Now it’s the world. She inspires the world and I just want to say I love you and congratulations and if you ever need anything I’m here. Thank you,” Hutchinson said.

Andrews says she can’t wait to show people what’s next and wants to pay it forward and help other talents achieve their dreams.
