Noel Fisher, professionally known as Detail, is an American record producer and recording artist from Detroit, Michigan.[1] He is perhaps best known for producing several hit singles, including "Sexy Can I" by Ray J, "I'm So Paid" by Akon, "How to Love" by Lil Wayne, "Drunk in Love" by Beyoncé and "We Dem Boyz" by Wiz Khalifa.

Life and career[edit]

In late 2005, he began to gain recognition in the music industry as a producer, after teaming up with American R&B singer Ray J, to produce the bulk of his third album Raydiation. Since then he continued to produce tracks for Ray J, and expanded his catalog by working with other prominent artists such as Akon, the Pussycat Dolls, Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, Ashanti, Marques Houston, Lady Gaga, Brandy, Shorty Mack, Christina Aguilera, T-Pain, Jennifer Lopez, R. Kelly, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and Snoop Dogg.

Detail co-wrote and produced Lil Wayne's hit single "How to Love", for Wayne's 2011 album Tha Carter IV. The single was certified 4× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Detail subsequently signed to Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, as well as Cash Money Records, as a producer.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8] Recently, he has produced the singles "Drunk In Love" for Beyoncé, "We Dem Boyz" for Wiz Khalifa and "I Luh Ya Papi" for Jennifer Lopez.

Detail received his first Grammy, when "Drunk In Love", performed by Beyoncé and Jay-Z, won Best R&B Song during the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.[9]

Personal life[edit]

On March 25, 2009, Detail and Christopher Walker were robbed by five armed men who were collecting on a debt that Detail supposedly owed to Suge Knight. Detail was asleep during the robbery, however Walker claims the men snuck into Detail's room and stole $170,000 worth of jewelry, a 130-pound safe, stereo equipment and the keys to a Mercedes.[10]
