For those who don't know about this song, Gaga, Akon, Claude Kelly, Tami Chynn, and RedOne wrote this song for a then unknown singer from Jamaica, Tami Chynn, back in 2007. It was supposed to be on her 2008 album, Prima Donna, but the song itself, and the album were scrapped entirely. Hypnotico didn't get a fresh new start until 2011 when JLo released this song. However, this is JLo's demo for Hypnotico, and I'll post Tami's version as well.
Songwriter Claude Kelly, who's worked with Britney Spears on 2008's Circus, says she should not be treated like a toddler. “She’s 39 and she’s been doing this a long time, it doesn’t make sense that she’s being handled like a toddler who has no rights.” He adds, “there are hundreds of other celebrities that have had pretty tough times like public breakdowns, public divorces or embarrassments and they haven’t needed to lose all of their rights.” The situation “brings up a bigger issue of human rights and it doesn’t make sense to remove the right for people to live the way they want to live.” He added, “If that’s the case then we should all be worried because we are all going to **** up, fall short and make mistakes. God forbid that someone can come in, whether it’s your father or your mother, your husband or your wife or whatever, and decide, “You no longer have the right to decide how you live your life.” Claude says he recorded several demos with her which are among “thousands” of unreleased tracks she made. "Anyone is capable of putting out a great new body of work from her at any time. We’re talking about a mega star.“She’s not a has-been. She’s a genius at it and you can never, ever, ever count out a brilliant musician like that. She’s always a hit away.” Full article here.
