Raisen's credits indicate his frequent use of live musicians in his productions.

ControversyEdit

After the Lizzo single "Truth Hurts" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2019, Raisen, alongside his brother Jeremiah, accused Lizzo of plagiarizing a line from his song "Healthy" and asked to receive songwriting credits.[9] Instead, Lizzo filed a lawsuit in order to receive a declaratory judgment blocking the Raisens from receiving any songwriting credits.[3] The Raisens responded in February 2020 by filing a counterclaim, asking to receive royalties and songwriting credits for the song.[10]
