I don't know about you, but I will shout from the rooftops that I am from New Jersey! I also love hearing when people from New Jersey make it into the "big leagues!" It's so exciting. According to NJ.com, two Jersey songwriters wrote songs for Beyonce's album The Gift. Nija Charles and Ant Clemons, both have pretty extensive resumes and both have worked in the hip-hop world before working with Beyonce.

Below is a clip of the behind the scenes special of the making of the album that aired earlier this week on ABC.

 

Below is a clip of Nija Charles is featured on and is listed as one of the song writers.

New Jersey is an amazing state and let me tell you, there have been many celebrities that have made it to the big time from the garden state. I think we need to add Nija Charles and Ant Clemons to that list.
