Madonna’s "MDNA" has been a record-setting failure and the legendary producer William Orbit knows the reason.
William Orbit states some Madonna’s best songs for "MDNA" went to Chris Brown!
During a spirited debate with fans on his Facebook page, Orbit gave two fascinating insights into the album’s genesis.
He told that the best songs written for Madonna's album went to hip hop singer Chris Brown.
Orbit admitted that they were strapped for time thanks to Madonna's commitments to her merchandising empire.
It has to be noted that the album experienced an 88% crash from week one to week two of sales.
Orbit, who produced Madonna’s 1998 smash hit record "Ray of Light", claimed: "We were very pushed for time due to… various pressing commitment that took up the artist’s limited time such as perfume ranges and teen fashion contests and other such endeavors. Which are beyond my own limited understanding of pop star agendas."
Orbit added: "We had songs lined up that were breathtaking, you’ll hear some of them on Chris Brown’s new album, Kreayshawn’s (INCREDIBLE) new album and my own, recently completed Strange Cargo album. Most of them, I believe, destined to become classics (let me know in a couple of months whether you concur with that). All of us fully committed to putting ourselves through extraordinary efforts to make "MDNA" the greatest album of the year, but alas the time wasn’t there."
What do you think of Orbit's explanation?
In my opinion, it is disrespectful to give his best songs to Chris Brown. I appreciate though his honesty. I wonder why Madonna has accepted something less than perfection. We all know that Madonna is a perfectionist. Anyway, the "MDNA" record has some amazing tracks. It took me back to the good days of 90's techno sound.
