Producer Releases Never-Before-Heard Britney Spears ‘Blackout’ Track “Red Hot Lipstick”

Merry Britmas!

Merry Britmas!

This leak is very mysterious. A man going by the name Doug Elkins says he produced a song titled “Red Hot Lipstick” for Britney Spears some time before the Blackout album was released.

Elkins posted the song on a site titled Bandcamp, along with a description of his time in the studio with her, and his outlook on how she performs and exists currently.

“I produced and co-wrote this song for/with Britney Spears,” he says. “I could write a few chapters about my professional life with Britney Spears, but since I have always chosen to be pretty discreet on the subject.” He lists out several reasons.

 

 

“Britney can sing. I often would beg her to stop chewing gum in the vocal booth (to no avail), but she really can sing well when she puts her heart into it. It totally bums me out when I see her lip-syncing (which is almost always).”

See what Exhale is saying about it.

He adds: “One of the most exciting moments of my professional career was the day Britney handed in this song as part of her finished record to her label Jive Records.” Elkins says he waited for several months as Britney’s public life took center stage. “Blackout, the album that came out… included none of the songs she had turned in to the label originally. I have to admit ‘Blackout’ was pretty good… of course, minus one glaring omission.” Elkins is referring to this track.

“Red Hot Lipstick” is quirky-bubble-pop Britney at her finest. She sassily croons in falsetto over an electric guitar and wavy bassline about getting turned on. It’s fantastic.

This demo also features a verse from someone named Noterock (real name Christian Janson).

I’m wondering if Elkins’ timeline is off. “Red Hot Lipstick” sounds like it was recorded during the same sessions as several other unreleased tracks meant for Original Doll, including “Ouch” and “Welcome To Me.” I guess it doesn’t really matter in the end – either way we get to enjoy this for life.

Unfortunately, I cannot link you to or embed the audio, but if you Google the words “bandcamp red hot lipstick britney spears” it should be the first result.

It’s time for us to take our flight,

Something about you got me lifted,
Got me twisted.
All emotional,
You’re hips are gifted.
Red hot girl with red hot lipstick.
Ask her to dance?
Yes, I insisted.
(I like that)
Yes, I figured you would.
Lipstick on my neck,
We up to no good.
Don’t say nothing,
Just move to the beat.
Before I know it,
I’m in the passenger seat.

Come on take a second,
Take a ride with me,
Listen to the breakdown,
When you’re feeling free.
Come on everybody,
‘Cause we’re digging deep.
