London, May 27 (IANS) Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham made a hip-hop album in 2003 and it has been leaked online.
The 17-demo tracks were reportedly written with Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash. As well as collaborating on a fashion line, it turns out they were making music together. Now some of those demo tracks from their time in the studio have been released online, reports mirror.co.uk.
Last month, a demo disc which contained tracks that would have featured on her hip-hop influenced album “Come Together”, was auctioned off on eBay and some of them have found their way onto YouTube and SoundCloud.
Speaking about the album that never was, Dash previously said: “Because Victoria’s record company aren’t happy about the fact that she came over to New York to work with me they are putting out stories. Before anyone’s even heard the album they were making things up.
“I heard a story that Victoria was calling herself the female Eminem. That’s just dumb. She never said that. I’m going to open Roc-a-Fella Records in London. I’ll show these Telstar cats how it’s done,” he added.
Beckham recorded two full studio albums – “Open Your Eyes” and the Dash collaboration – that were never released following poor sales of her self-titled debut album, as well as disputes with record companies.
