Duet is a collaboration of 2 performers, 3 make a trio:)

The only albums you mentioned were Madonna's and they were released eventually so not exactly on the topic. Ok.

Not sure it counts, but Liberation by Mya was accidentally digitally released in Japan for a spell, and obviously leaked online. She left the label and the actual album was never released.

I've read that all the Kylie tracks have now leaked! The only demos which haven't are the session singer submissions.

Just going back to this one...

It wasn't a duet. It was a remix of Missy's Pussycat from her Under Construction album. Janet didn't pull the plug, Missy did as the single was scrapped.

And it featured Lil' Kim, not Aaliyah. She died in 2001. The remix was recorded in 2003.

Someone asked Missy about it on Twitter recently and she said she might dig it out and release it one day... :)

She also recorded a second album after, which also went unreleased. A few tracks have leaked from those sessions too.

The only one I can think of which hasn't been mentioned is Louise Redknapp's 4th album. It was due for release around 2004, but was abandoned when she became pregnant. There's around 18 tracks (including her final single Pandora's Kiss / Don't Give Up) which have leaked from various sources over the years.

Yes Blue was originally Melanie Blatts and 10 years or so later Xenomania dragged it out of the vaults for Amelia :)

Prince had some major leaks along his career and apparently there are tons of unreleased music in his vault still.

To mention a couple there are:

"The Black Album" was meant to be released in 1987 but it's still sort of unclear why they pushed back the release last minute although some copies already reached radios and press so it ended up being printed as a bootleg. Later in 1993 was officially released as anyway it was already floating around the fanbase.

"Camille" is another unreleased album by Prince. It was meant to be published under the pseudonym Camille, Prince female alter ego and so in all the tracks the voice is pitched up and it was ready to be realeased at the end of 86 beginning of 87. Some songs have been incorporated in "Sign Of The Times" and the rest leaked along the years...

I could go on and on and on :D

Prince used to give out demos to essentially every stalker back in the day, hence why he's had so many leaks (a lot in LQ though).

Once he realised that people were trading/putting it online he stopped. I imagine that he must have a vault for another 35 albums if they were ever opened as he was that creative in his peaks.

I remember reading about The Samantha Mumba album a while back. Apparently it's made up of a bunch of demos she recorded intended for her second album - from what I've read, she submitted these tracks to the label, and I'm Right Here came from the sessions she had afterwards.

She was sent back to record more tracks, as her label were unsure about the R&B tracks. She was then offered Girls Aloud's Sound Of The Underground and started working with Bloodshy & Avant. After I'm Right Here flopped in the UK, the label sent her back in to the studio to record. Woman (the song) was recorded around late 2002 / early 2003 along side a whole new album, but due to being difficult to work with, the album kept getting pushed back. The label ultimately felt like momentum had passed, and they released her from her contract.

So the album on the internet isn't the one intended for release, and I'm unsure if the late 2002 / early 2003 version ever leaked.

Hmm, the tracklist I posted is supposed to be the delayed 2003 album while the leaked stuff is from early 2002. I don't know, but her music career is confusing.

I believe that tracklisting are the songs which she first submitted to the label.

Although Woman and Wake Up (I think it's also called Wake Me Up?) are from the sessions she did after I'm Right Here flopped.

He was surely one of a kind.
Every time Warner didn't want to release his albums exactly the way they were conceived he was pulling back the release.
He wanted to keep total artistic control, so he rather recycle tracks himself from the shelved albums to put them onto a new albums rather than let the label edit his work.

To be honest I think he willingly leaked some material back then because he wanted his music to be listened but he didn't like that people were exploiting his leaks in order to make a profit so that's why at some point he stopped and locked the vault.

That someone was ME. She asked Janet and Janet said no. at least get your facts right when you're replying. She herself responded to me and Janet said NO. And no, lil kim was not featured. Aaliyah was. This was rumoured already during AFY era.
