One Hell of a Song (Audio) by Mike Posner

Media Type: Music Topic: Marginal Thinking

Between 1:24 – 1:46 the lyrics are:

“Wrote one [song] for Snoop, did not take long

Wrote one for Bieber and one for Sean

And Jay Z offered me a deal

I said dawg, throw in another mil'

'Cause you know I can write one hell of a song,”

Stars such as Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, and Jay Z, despite their uncontested ability to write and perform, choose to outsource some of the compositional process; most likely due to the relatively high opportunity cost involved. Posner’s comparative advantage is writing the songs.
