While chatting to Madonna-philes on his Facebook page, the producer revealed that due to time constraints, they were unable to record several songs which were "destined to become classics", and so Chris Brown got them instead.
"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," wrote William.
"We were very pushed for time due to … various pressing commitments that took up the artist's limited time such as perfume ranges and teen fashion contests and other such endeavours. Which are beyond my own limited understanding of pop star agendas."
Madonna’s many commitments seem to have done precious little to boost the album's sales. It would have been smarter to spend more time in the studio, it seems.
People are buying the music, not the perfume or clothing line with a complimentary album.
"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," William added.
But surely it would have helped if Madonna had recorded those "amazing" songs before all the crap ones that made it to the album?
