Pitbull's "Hey Ma" With Camila Cabello And J Balvin Was Originally Meant For Britney Spears And Romeo Santos

Britney Spears recorded a song with Pitbull and Romeo Santos titled "Hey Ma," but movie execs traded her and Santos out for Camila Cabello and J Balvin.

Pitbull filmed a Miami-themed music video for his new collaboration with Camila and Balvin. Part of the shoot took place outside, and fans recorded a bit of the song, but the original would have looked and sounded entirely different.

“Funny story behind that,” Pitbull told Radio.com. “At first, it was me and Romeo Santos, Britney Spears was on the record. [The] Fast and Furious [team] ends up loving the record. And they brought on board J Balvin and Camila Cabello. So, it’s been an interesting journey. To watch it go on to become the intro to the movie — the first huge movie franchise to shoot in Cuba — is an amazing honor.” He adds the original version with Britney and Santos may be released at some point.

“You never know, there might be a remix with Romeo and Britney in the future. But it was an honor to be able to work with Britney.”

Britney, being the professional that she is, remained unbothered. “She was a great sport, she’s been in the business for years," Pitbull continued. "She said, ‘Don’t even worry about that. We’ll use it for the remix, or we’ll do another record together.'”

IN WHAT WORLD DO WE LIVE IN WHERE BRITNEY SPEARS WAS EVER REPLACED BY ANOTHER ARTIST? THIS IS BLASPHEMY. THIS IS MAD DISRESPECT. I'M NOT OK WITH THIS.

No disrespect to Camila and J Balvin though.

Pitbull’s upcoming collaboration with Camila Cabello and J Balvin, “Hey Ma,” was originally supposed to be a collaboration with Britney Spears and Romeo Santos.

The song will be in the upcoming Fast and Furious film, The Fate of the Furious, but Pitbull told Radio.com that the original version with Spears and Santos is in the can and that it may be released at some point.

Say Goodbye Barmy to our WW Smash Latin Hit :meltdown:. Romeo Santos is one of the Biggest Latin Artist Ever + The upcoming Fast and Furious film it's a MASSIVE promotion after the last film (1.5 Billions the last one)

**** you Larry & RCA they needed push for this much harder. Probably LA Reid put a lot of money in the table for Camilla... Another missed chance of have a Decent WW Hit :meltdown:

Probably LA Reid paid a lot for that (Fast & Furious it's a massive promotion WW after the last Film) and you know how CHEAP is LARRY AND RCA with Britney

Sadly this proves she's seen as irrelevant in today's music world. I mean clearly the label felt Camila would help make the song a bigger success than Britney would so that says it all right there, very unfortunate. 

Irrelevant because the shitty decisions of her team :unbelievableney:
