Well, Merry Britmas everyone!! We have a new leaked demo! Earlier this year, Pitbull and J Balvin released the song “Hey Ma” featuring Camila Cabello for the soundtrack of the 2017 film “The Fate of the Furious “. But then, Pitbull revealed that the song was originally supposed to be a collaboration with Britney and Romeo Santos. Here’s the full interview:
“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.”
“But,” he adds, “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.”
He notes that Spears was cool about hearing the news that her version wasn’t going to be used in the film. “She was a great sport, she’s been in the business for years. She said, ‘Don’t even worry about that. We’ll use it for the remix, or we’ll do another record together.’”
And now it turns out he wasn’t wrong! The original demo leaked today and here it is… Enjoy!!
