“Original Doll” producer Micelle Bell leaked the full version of “Money Love & Happiness,” but it was an uphill battle. Team Britney asked her to stop after this.
She posted the song and this message on her Tumblr:
“Good news… out of all the artists I’ve worked with Britney has the best fans ever!!!!! With all the outpouring of love no wonder she continues to be such a great success and inspiration!!
I’m personally overwhelmed by the response to these snippets because I was devastated when that album didn’t come out. (Btw, those original doll album covers you tweeted me are ALL brilliant!)
Bad news… we gotta enjoy this as much as we can because I can’t post anymore songs. I’ve been asked to stop. I can’t make this album come out and I can’t release the songs. I don’t have the power to do that. I wish I could.
However all of you can make a difference. If I had to chose I wish she’d release “Take Off” it’s my absolute favorite. The lyrics are meaningful and of course the beat is unbelievably good!! It’s produced by Bloodshy & Avant.
Honestly I don’t know what happened with the album. I’m just a writer, producer and a fan.
The one thing I do know about great songs is that they will always find a way to the public but I have to respect the way things are done in the music business and let the songs go through the proper channels. Meaning the artist or the record label has to put it out!!!!
I’ve been true to myself by sharing what I could. As you can hear, Peep Show and Money Love & Happiness are unfinished ideas. I was honored to do this work and I respect everyone who I worked with on each song. These songs mean just as much to us (the writers and producers) as they do to you.
Thanks for the awesome feedback! But before I go… one more post..”
I think it’s refreshing to see a producer care more about the music than the dollar signs; ashame she’s forced to stop sharing more great Britney music with us in the future.
Thanks for the gift, Michelle!
