Frederick Jay "Rick" Rubin (born March 10, 1963) is an American record producer and the co-president of Columbia Records. Along with Russell Simmons, Rubin was
the co-founder of Def Jam Records and also established American Recordings. With the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Run–D.M.C., Rubin helped popularize hip hop music. Rubin is responsible for producing several of the songs on Adele's album, 21.

Rubin has worked with artists as varied as Tom Petty, Black Sabbath, Trouble, Slipknot, Slayer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Mars Volta, Danzig, Dixie Chicks, Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Weezer, Linkin Park, The Cult, Neil Diamond, Mick Jagger, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Beastie Boys, Audioslave, The Avett Brothers, and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. In the 1990s and 2000s, he produced the "American Recordings" albums with Johnny Cash. MTV called him "the most important producer of the last 20 years." In 2007, Rubin was listed among Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World, a list Adele would later be listed on.

Adele songs produced by Rick RubinEdit

Rubin produced five songs from 21, as seen below:

Rubin worked with Andrew Scheps (mixer), Greg Fidelman (recorder), Sara Lyn Killion (assistant), Phillip Broussard Jr. (assistant), and Lindsay Chase (production coordinator). All of the songs he worked on were recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, California and mixed at Punkerpad West in Van Nuys, California.

Rubin originally planned to produce a cover of INXS's "Never Tear Us Apart" for 21, but Adele found her vocals "unconvincing", and the cover was scrapped in favor of a bossa-nova style version of "Lovesong" by The Cure, which Rubin originally had planned for someone like Barbara Streisand.
