Britney Spears - Reference Tracks & Demo Pitches [Infopost + Masterpost]


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

I have literally dozens and dozens of possible rejects/demos/titles etc, and I'll probably never get to properly index them (like down to if they're confirmed or how likely they are etc).

It seems to be missing some obvious confirmed ones like Girls Aloud - Graffiti My Soul and Kelis - Milkshake...

I'm also pretty sure that some of the songs are under the wrong era...like The Diary Of is without a doubt a Circus reject, not Blackout. It's very obvious just from the sound of it compared to other Bloodshy & Avant productions. Michelle & Peter Wade did 2 other tracks with Bloodshy & Avant at that time, "Beware" & "Potential", so it's very possible those were also for Circus.

Anyway, I guess I'll just post a bunch of confirmed and IMO pretty obvious pitches, starting with Femme Fatale (since there's so fucking many):

Alesha Dixon - Download Me
[Alex Cantrall, Dwight Johnson, Laze & Royal]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/85148f55d6d940b383a4d2ad2080c9ef 

Not much to say, seems pretty obvious. Pretty bad track.

Alesha Dixon - On Top
[Heather Bright, The Stereotypes]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/427fac0bad8e4910ad197460256583e1 

Ditto. Pretty fucking good track though. It's weird how much it actually sounds like this is just Heather Bright's demo? I would love to hear that to see how many of Alesha's vocals are even on here. It's like they accidentally put the wrong mix on the album or something.

Ask Embla - Father's Eyes
[Ina Wroldsen, Arnthor]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/f97630a66d9044e0a05d659b780add2e 

Was registered as a Britney track long before they released it as Ask Embla. A lot of their other songs sound like Britney tracks, but I think Ina has denied any of them are.

Bebe Rexha - Some Girls -> Madonna
[Klas Åhlund & Diplo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/8683f28c7d2f4605b81a5059097e932e 

Although Diplo's credit got lost, he definitely originally did this track with Klas for Femme Fatale. There's another track by the both of them called "Satellite" that was registered at the same time and was most likely also a Britney pitch and probably reffed by Bebe. William Orbit ended up re-working this and Love Spent and placing them on Madonna's MDNA album.

Bonnie McKee - Psycho [Play Rough]
[Bonnie McKee, Neon Hitch, ...]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/3010eca98aa043b1ab0c27c6e3d86142 

Plenty of the recent Bonnie leaks sound like possible Britney pitches, but this one seems pretty obvious IMO.

Chasity Nwagbara - Drop My Name
[Alex Da Kid]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/c99313027330411f868508686b9c8c30 

Supposedly an early Femme Fatale demo. Definitely possible, but Chasity's voice is pretty similar to Britney's, so it's hard to say. She obviously has written for her, but if you want to, you can hear Britney in most of her songs. Uses the same instrumental as the not-for-Britney Frankie Storm track "Armageddon".

Claude Kelly - Beat Junkie [Clip]
[Claude Kelly, Lindy Robbins, Mike Elizondo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/896ff4cbc03548679e7a2ab5dd7e9744 

Seems to have been written at the Texas FF writing camp.

Claude Kelly - No Boys Allowed [Studio Session] [Clip]
[Danja?]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ac05793d8fa04e14abb728630772cf76 

Not sure where this came from, some interview with Claude or something - does anyone know?

Dizzee Rascal - Bad Behaviour Feat Tiësto
[Dizzee Rascal, Danja & Tiësto]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/aca988609d1e49d7b7036ad01a05706d 

I've seen this registered as a Britney track, and Tiesto/Danja sessions were confirmed. Pretty sure Tiesto's album from that time has some other random Britney spitbacks. If this was originally for Britney, it's probably been changed up a bit.

Eric Bellinger - What I'm About
[Danja]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/4c75037b8da64395864564053914b15a 

Intro says it all.

Genie Zhuo - Fan Pai [Villain]
[Kara DioGuardi, Nicole Morier, Henrik Jonback, Bloodshy & Avant]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/860c2e404f514cc4a52f9af82d99cc15 

Originally titled "Anything But Your Girlfriend".

Heather Bright - Crash [Clip]
[Heather Bright, Stef & Mango]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/f16fe101d5634e8f88c2ee8b3caf63a2 

'Nobody' probably has this...got a clip from a publishing site years ago. Said nothing about Britney or anything, but it sounds a lot like a track for her. Mango previously worked with Britney on Toy Soldier and even as far back as 2005, doing programming on Mona Lisa. Heather doesn't usually sound a lot like Britney, she seems to be really trying on this track, though. So this seems pretty likely IMO.

hitomi - Freedom
[hitomi] [Makeba Riddick, Scott Cutler, Anne Preven & Kevin Rudolf]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/045c52346d6544d19401327d1df96ddb 

There's a bunch of tracks on that album that could've been for Britney, but this one seems pretty obvious.

Indigo Brown - Watch Me Go
[Misha Bryan, Kingsley Brown, Cutfather, Peter Wallevik & Daniel Davidsen]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ff97fc15ec6241c6a25117f1affc790d 

As I recall this was on their Soundcloud years ago and it was mentioned it was written for Britney.

Jeffree Star - In My Pocket
[Heather Bright, Kelly Sheehan, Sandy Vee & Azengo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/fce50c14e03445edaf5aaeb81d1ff2fb 

Never hear anyone mention this amazing track ever anywhere, sure sounds a shitload like a Britney track to me though. What a waste of an exceptional track...

Lauren Christy - Breathing -> Jason Derulo
[Lauren Christy, Julian Bunetta, Jacob Luttrell & DJ Frank E]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/604e6f93fb554ef59cd5276fa4a353a6 

Rumored to be a Britney demo, not sure where that came from but it seems pretty likely this was done along with Tonight I'm Fucking You.

Little Majorette - Never Be The Same

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ca6114d9cb1b4a6ab630524667f98905 

Little Majorette was Avant's brother Petter's former band. They're both members of Amason now. Even though this was officially released in 2011, the track had been out since 2009 or so on their MySpace. Anyway, supposedly Britney was interested in recording this track, IIRC that came from some Swedish music site. A few years later this remix came out:

Karlsson & Winnberg - Hearts Beating Weak [Never Be The Same] Feat Little Majorette

https://onlyfiles.io/f/85732eae6e2f4c829484cf6bc63761c6 

It sounds pretty...remix-y. But it lends credence to it having been a contender for Britney and having been re-worked by Bloodshy & Avant, and then re-worked further still into the Karlsson & Winnberg version.

Livvi Franc - High
[Livvi Franc, Lucas Secon]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/10115e2dff1b4524b4895dbe8a085caa 

Not confirmed in any way but Livvi was working alot with Lucas around that time, and Lucas was obviously pitching tracks to her other than It's A Secret & King Of My Castle. Frankie Storm mentioned that Heads Up wasn't written for Britney or anyone in particular, but she thought that it was pitched to her. It's also likely that at least Frankie did some other tracks with him for Britney at the time, and there are probably more with other writers. Technically those might be for her greatest hits or #1 or whatever album at the time, but I chalk those under Femme Fatale.

Livvi Franc - Peep Show
[Livvi Franc, Heather Bright, ...]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/5f11444942474b16903fa623c28706d5 

Livvi has mentioned that she did a raunchier track than Toxic or Trouble For Me, the title of which wasn't known. I think it might be this. If true, that would make this (at least) the 3rd Britney pitch called "Peep Show"...which might explain why the Ester Dean/StarGate & Sandy Vee track was referred to as I Need A Change.

Livvi Franc - Timebomb
[Livvi Franc, Heather Bright, The Writing Camp, Fraser T Smith]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/9bdc7fc22c2348e1ab87786bc151b291 

Not confirmed but I've assumed it was for Britney since I first heard it, and I've seen it mentioned as a Britney pitch a lot recently. The whole "I'm like a machine, I'm an automatic fiend" thing just screams Britney.

Neon Hitch - Alien
[Neon Hitch, Claude Kelly, benny blanco]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/6c433aa4c122432792fe160bdf8ba4a0 

Just a hunch.

Neon Hitch - Gun Shy [Clip]
[Neon Hitch, Evan 'Kidd' Bogart, Oak & Pop]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/c4e0aa51201a4d0b9c7aa262969d032f 

From the Texas writing camp.

Priscilla Renea - Love Spent -> Madonna
[Priscilla Renea, Alain Whyte, Free School]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/a1b765653aeb4d71b5a480541b7ced8d 

Never see this mentioned as a Britney track...it's like no one who's heard of Britney has ever heard Priscilla's demo.

Victoria Justice - Caught Up In You
[Victoria Justice, Lindy Robbins, Evan 'Kidd' Bogart, Fraser T Smith]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/22fddc122b3a470c844307a888a5711e 

Suspect this was also written during the Texas Femme Fatale writing camp and Victoria's credit was later added.

I used to have a huge list with tons of titles of tracks that were written during the Texas writing camp but I'm pretty sure it was lost when my laptop died a few years ago.

We never got titles for these, but there is definitely at least 1 track written by Bonnie McKee & produced by Danja, and 1 track written by Bonnie & Jewel.

Lindy was writing specifically for Victoria's 2010/2011 album, Lindy and Fraser only worked together on FF for a day as well

All this tracks sounds so good

But FYI, No Boys Allowed was produced by Benny Blanco, the snippet comes from a documentary of Benny's that is on youtube

And he can be seen in the studio with Claude Kelly and Neon Hitch writing/producing songs for Kesha, Britney, etc

Now, Some Girls by Madonna never was for Britney, one person had a chat with producer William Orbit and he debunked that

BTW, i confirmed "Gun Shy" with Neon Hitch Via Instagram a few months ago

"Drop My Name" had been leaked under singer Jojo's name, but it's possible it was for Britney, Alex Da Kid produced songs in 2010 for Femme Fatale, we just don't know which ones

Father's Eyes was never meant for Britney, just like Legion, those rumors were debunked by Ina Wroldsen on Twitter a long time ago

I only added the reference tracks we know exists and/or has a performer confirmed. I didn't added those 2 because I don't know anything about their "original demos" or if these even have writer/producer/pitched demos.

I remember Ina denying in Twitter that Legion (other of the Ask Embla tracks) was a Britney reject. About Father's Eyes, it's very likely it is a mistake on the music repertoires, somebody asked Ina about it but I don't remember what she said.

William Orbit already debunked about this song being a Britney reject already.

Britney definitely recorded Graffiti My Soul and Cheryl Cole has talked about it sounding "weird" before :cackle: 

Don't think she ever recorded Milkshake though, although it was definitely sent to her/her team

Yeah, i wasn't talking about Britney recording the tracks but rather if some of the writers or a reference singer recorded a demo of both songs that was offered to Britney and the other artists. I'm aware Britney recorded Graffiti My Soul but we don't know if there's even a previous demo before her demo, that's what i'm talking and that's why this wasn't mentioned on the post. :awkwardney:

Well she didn't write on either track, so it was definitely demoed for her by someone before they sent it to her for approval :awkwardney: Pharrell does some of his own demos so I guess he could potentially have done Milkshake, but I'm not really sure who Xenomania used for their demos

[Klas Åhlund & Diplo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/8683f28c7d2f4605b81a5059097e932e 

Although Diplo's credit got lost, he definitely originally did this track with Klas for Femme Fatale. There's another track by the both of them called "Satellite" that was registered at the same time and was most likely also a Britney pitch and probably reffed by Bebe. William Orbit ended up re-working this and Love Spent and placing them on Madonna's MDNA album.

Bonnie McKee - Psycho [Play Rough]
[Bonnie McKee, Neon Hitch, ...]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/3010eca98aa043b1ab0c27c6e3d86142 

Plenty of the recent Bonnie leaks sound like possible Britney pitches, but this one seems pretty obvious IMO.

Chasity Nwagbara - Drop My Name
[Alex Da Kid]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/c99313027330411f868508686b9c8c30 

Supposedly an early Femme Fatale demo. Definitely possible, but Chasity's voice is pretty similar to Britney's, so it's hard to say. She obviously has written for her, but if you want to, you can hear Britney in most of her songs. Uses the same instrumental as the not-for-Britney Frankie Storm track "Armageddon".

Claude Kelly - Beat Junkie [Clip]
[Claude Kelly, Lindy Robbins, Mike Elizondo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/896ff4cbc03548679e7a2ab5dd7e9744 

Seems to have been written at the Texas FF writing camp.

Claude Kelly - No Boys Allowed [Studio Session] [Clip]
[Danja?]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ac05793d8fa04e14abb728630772cf76 

Not sure where this came from, some interview with Claude or something - does anyone know?

Dizzee Rascal - Bad Behaviour Feat Tiësto
[Dizzee Rascal, Danja & Tiësto]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/aca988609d1e49d7b7036ad01a05706d 

I've seen this registered as a Britney track, and Tiesto/Danja sessions were confirmed. Pretty sure Tiesto's album from that time has some other random Britney spitbacks. If this was originally for Britney, it's probably been changed up a bit.

Eric Bellinger - What I'm About
[Danja]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/4c75037b8da64395864564053914b15a 

Intro says it all.

Genie Zhuo - Fan Pai [Villain]
[Kara DioGuardi, Nicole Morier, Henrik Jonback, Bloodshy & Avant]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/860c2e404f514cc4a52f9af82d99cc15 

Originally titled "Anything But Your Girlfriend".

Heather Bright - Crash [Clip]
[Heather Bright, Stef & Mango]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/f16fe101d5634e8f88c2ee8b3caf63a2 

'Nobody' probably has this...got a clip from a publishing site years ago. Said nothing about Britney or anything, but it sounds a lot like a track for her. Mango previously worked with Britney on Toy Soldier and even as far back as 2005, doing programming on Mona Lisa. Heather doesn't usually sound a lot like Britney, she seems to be really trying on this track, though. So this seems pretty likely IMO.

hitomi - Freedom
[hitomi] [Makeba Riddick, Scott Cutler, Anne Preven & Kevin Rudolf]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/045c52346d6544d19401327d1df96ddb 

There's a bunch of tracks on that album that could've been for Britney, but this one seems pretty obvious.

Indigo Brown - Watch Me Go
[Misha Bryan, Kingsley Brown, Cutfather, Peter Wallevik & Daniel Davidsen]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ff97fc15ec6241c6a25117f1affc790d 

As I recall this was on their Soundcloud years ago and it was mentioned it was written for Britney.

Jeffree Star - In My Pocket
[Heather Bright, Kelly Sheehan, Sandy Vee & Azengo]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/fce50c14e03445edaf5aaeb81d1ff2fb 

Never hear anyone mention this amazing track ever anywhere, sure sounds a shitload like a Britney track to me though. What a waste of an exceptional track...

Lauren Christy - Breathing -> Jason Derulo
[Lauren Christy, Julian Bunetta, Jacob Luttrell & DJ Frank E]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/604e6f93fb554ef59cd5276fa4a353a6 

Rumored to be a Britney demo, not sure where that came from but it seems pretty likely this was done along with Tonight I'm Fucking You.

Little Majorette - Never Be The Same

https://onlyfiles.io/f/ca6114d9cb1b4a6ab630524667f98905 

Little Majorette was Avant's brother Petter's former band. They're both members of Amason now. Even though this was officially released in 2011, the track had been out since 2009 or so on their MySpace. Anyway, supposedly Britney was interested in recording this track, IIRC that came from some Swedish music site. A few years later this remix came out:

Karlsson & Winnberg - Hearts Beating Weak [Never Be The Same] Feat Little Majorette

https://onlyfiles.io/f/85732eae6e2f4c829484cf6bc63761c6 

It sounds pretty...remix-y. But it lends credence to it having been a contender for Britney and having been re-worked by Bloodshy & Avant, and then re-worked further still into the Karlsson & Winnberg version.

Livvi Franc - High
[Livvi Franc, Lucas Secon]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/10115e2dff1b4524b4895dbe8a085caa 

Not confirmed in any way but Livvi was working alot with Lucas around that time, and Lucas was obviously pitching tracks to her other than It's A Secret & King Of My Castle. Frankie Storm mentioned that Heads Up wasn't written for Britney or anyone in particular, but she thought that it was pitched to her. It's also likely that at least Frankie did some other tracks with him for Britney at the time, and there are probably more with other writers. Technically those might be for her greatest hits or #1 or whatever album at the time, but I chalk those under Femme Fatale.

Livvi Franc - Peep Show
[Livvi Franc, Heather Bright, ...]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/5f11444942474b16903fa623c28706d5 

Livvi has mentioned that she did a raunchier track than Toxic or Trouble For Me, the title of which wasn't known. I think it might be this. If true, that would make this (at least) the 3rd Britney pitch called "Peep Show"...which might explain why the Ester Dean/StarGate & Sandy Vee track was referred to as I Need A Change.

Livvi Franc - Timebomb
[Livvi Franc, Heather Bright, The Writing Camp, Fraser T Smith]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/9bdc7fc22c2348e1ab87786bc151b291 

Not confirmed but I've assumed it was for Britney since I first heard it, and I've seen it mentioned as a Britney pitch a lot recently. The whole "I'm like a machine, I'm an automatic fiend" thing just screams Britney.

Neon Hitch - Alien
[Neon Hitch, Claude Kelly, benny blanco]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/6c433aa4c122432792fe160bdf8ba4a0 

Just a hunch.

Neon Hitch - Gun Shy [Clip]
[Neon Hitch, Evan 'Kidd' Bogart, Oak & Pop]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/c4e0aa51201a4d0b9c7aa262969d032f 

From the Texas writing camp.

Priscilla Renea - Love Spent -> Madonna
[Priscilla Renea, Alain Whyte, Free School]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/a1b765653aeb4d71b5a480541b7ced8d 

Never see this mentioned as a Britney track...it's like no one who's heard of Britney has ever heard Priscilla's demo.

Victoria Justice - Caught Up In You
[Victoria Justice, Lindy Robbins, Evan 'Kidd' Bogart, Fraser T Smith]

https://onlyfiles.io/f/22fddc122b3a470c844307a888a5711e 

Suspect this was also written during the Texas Femme Fatale writing camp and Victoria's credit was later added.

I used to have a huge list with tons of titles of tracks that were written during the Texas writing camp but I'm pretty sure it was lost when my laptop died a few years ago.

We never got titles for these, but there is definitely at least 1 track written by Bonnie McKee & produced by Danja, and 1 track written by Bonnie & Jewel.

No, was confirmed that "Diary Of..." was for Blackout. Also was for Circus.
