7:10 am
does not suggest this race could still shake up a great deal? >> oh, yes. we have seen that in the past where candidates were at the top of the polls, both in 2012, but also in 2008 then they totally disappeared. we should see a lot of shaking out and there is an opportunity for a candidate who is lower in the polls to kind of make their mark, grab a moment. and so there -- you know, that is something to watch, in addition to the carson/trump back and forth. >> at this stage of the campaign four years ago wasn't herman cain in first place? >> he had his moment and michelle bachman had her moments. yes, a lot of opportunity here for other candidates and why a lot of them are still staying in the race even thorough in single digits and stuck there for a long time. >> good information, john dickerson. thank you so much. john will moderate next

put something on top of it. that is the unique sound. every piano has been heard but if you can create something brand new is interesting to your ears now. that song for son a brand-new song. >> do you consider yourself a musician? >> 100%. i'm not a great player but i think anybody that creates music is a musician, you know? i'm not going to be able to play an acoustic rendition of any song for you guys now but i try hard to do the best i can. what i lack in playing abilities i have strong abilities what can change in music. >> how do you work with someone like, let's say, justin bieber, or madonna? how does that relationship work? >> every time is different. you know? as i get further in my career i think i have a lot more leverage with artists like madonna or justin. when i started out i was doing busy work to get my door into the producer. madonna sought me out and we
8:35 am
have great respect and so much great chemistry. i would never expect somebody of her size but it's a matter of leverage. it's how you can take somebody. >> she comes to you with a song and you do your magic? >> with madonna we had one song i had written that was specifically for her but everything else, we wrote together. she is a classic girl that everything had to come back to the acoustic guitar and had to play it and make sure it's great song. as a producer when you're dressed up in fashion every year you're the same person but you the music always changes. it always has different bells and whistles around it but the music has to be a classically well-written song. >> that's a really good analogy. you are considered one of the best deejays in the world. did you think you could make a living being a deejay? >> a good living! >> when i first start deejaying in florida, i knew maybe three guys in the world that i knew made a living off of deejaying, you know? >> what were you doing before that? >> i had every job. i worked at the zoo.
8:36 am
i worked as a school teacher, social worker in philadelphia. >> you said i want to do music? >> i think at the end of the day, i was about 23 when i just realized i wasn't good at any other job and i think that music was the one thing that i could do. a huge step when you're young and you take a step into being a creative person for your work, it's a huge step, you know? i think that it was scary and i started doing it for three years and build up from scratch. >> are you doing mainstream media? witness your appearance here. >> i think for me i'm just always glad to be able to take it to another level. i think that my attitude towards making music is always the same. push the boundaries as far as i can. people like all over the world are able to hear. "lean on" has 7 million viewers and we made that song in a small bedroom in a studio, basically. it's how far the music can take it. it's 35th most watched video on youtube at the moment. >> people like you. you've been described as pop's

bad boy on. you had a feud with taylor swift out. table. nothing bad boyish about you. is that a persona for you or is it blown out of proportion? >> i never expected to be on "cbs this morning." i never thought it would ever happen or be with charlie rose and blessed to do these things. when i first started, social media was a funny thing. it's images and it's funny. >> the interesting thing you're good at talking, number one. >> right. >> beyond making music. i mean, you have an interesting way of talking about the music and yourself. >> i think that, you know, at twitter, you only have a hundred characters? >> can you say something outrageous. >> i just like to put funny pictures. i never thought people would pay attention what i'm writing on twitter but they do and everything is scrutinized at this point. i'd rather discuss music with you who are excited and interested to learn.
8:38 am
>> it's an old r&b stong in the '90s and we recreated the song and made a whole new beat around it and something i made for my deejay sets and it's number three right now in england on the charts and i think, you know, it's growing here in the united states. >> the other interesting thing to know about 300 days you're out in concert. you draw huge crowds. >> you work hard. >> i play everything from cecil for a hundred thousand people. >> hundred thousand? >> nightclubs and bars. for me, it's a different style of music i play. like the bieber song, the major laser to my own solo stuff. for me, that's how you communicate with the audience now. i guess i'm not a pop star but being out there and working hard and distributing my music to people at live venues is the way to do it nowadays. >> according to your social media you like girls that twirk and norah was going to do it but she didn't wear the right outfit
