Britney's 2003 in the zone bonus track "The answer" is being used to pay a German man 1,000,000 dollars


Recommended Posts

Producer Ryan Leslie (popular for the production on Cassie's only studio album) worked with Britney Spears in 03 for one song, fan Favorite bonus Track "The answer", well future royalties aren't going to Britney Spears or the Songwriters Ryan Leslie and Sean Combs, This is due to a deal Ryan made with a man who found his lap top, Since Ryan thought music was in the lap top, and it turned out it wasn't, he refused to pay the 1.82 Million reward. 

 

The man took him to court where a court ruled in his favor, Unfortunately Ryan Leslie had to file bankruptcy as he didn't have the money to pay the man. They made a deal using any and all future royalties for the next six years to pay the 538,000 that's remaining, which includes The Answer by Britney Spears, and ourhers including Cassie, if he didn't make 300,000 by 2023, the German man will keep all the royalties on a permanent basis. 

 

Unfortunately since Britney didn't write the song and was paid upfront to record the track. She really doesn't get royalties at all.

Songwriters and producers gets royalties, which is where touring is Britney's breadwinner as many of her hits aren't written by her or co written, and she isn't known for even producing the music as well.
