How Songwriting Took Elijah Blake from the Poor House to the Penthouse

Elijah Blake, who has written songs for Rick Ross, Rihanna, and co-wrote Usher’s number-one R&B hit, “Climax,” is coming into his own by making the transition from songwriting to being the main attraction.
When Blake was 16, he signed with Atlantic Records and worked with Trey Songz on his Ready album in 2009 and hasn’t looked back since.

He sat down with the Associated Press to talk about the value of songwriting. He tells an amazing story about literally being broke one day and in the blink of eye living in a penthouse. Check out the clip below to see what the young singer/songwriter had to say about working with Trey Songz.
