Pop star Britney Spears' catalog of music is mostly compiled of hit songs and tracks featured on her seven studio albums – along with some unofficially leaked material. The “Till the World Ends” singer is no stranger to song leaks, but her bootleg demo repertoire grew by one track on Wednesday with a song believed to be titled “Pleasure You.” Recent X Factor USA reject Don Philip leaked the song he collaborated on with Spears.
Entertainmentwise reports that Philip leaked the sexy song on his SoundCloud account. “Pleasure You” is said to have come from a 2010 recording session, but the track could have been recorded even before then. It is not known if Philip and Spears actually recorded the song together or if he just added himself to the demo like Hills star Heidi Montag allegedly did in 2008 with her Spears “collaboration” on the track “Dramatic.”
The song was reportedly first heard in 2010, but not fully leaked, according to RadarOnline. The website got in touch with Spears' old label, Jive Records, and the representatives weighed in on the song leak.
"We are totally unaware of the song being leaked. We don't know how her song or any other artists song could have been released. We're looking into the issue,” Jive's reps reportedly told RadarOnline in 2010.
Spears and Philip trade verses on “Pleasure You” and sing the song's chorus together. The new track is about being submissive to a lover's every whim and desire. “Anything you ask / Let me release the stress for you / However may I pleasure you,” Spears seductively sings in this R&B-styled tune.
Philip and Spears originally collaborated on the teen-pop ballad, “I Will Still Love You,” from Britney's 1999 debut album, ...Baby One More Time. They were both label mates on Jive Records with Spears soon becoming a pop superstar after and Philip later being dropped by the company. The two had a recent exchange on The X Factor when Philip auditioned with Spears as a judge. He came out to Spears as being gay and the “Criminal” singer fully supported him, but he reportedly didn't make it through because of an underwhelming performance.
While Philip's song leak is the most recent that Spears has faced this year, back in April, Britney's former songwriters also released a few of the singer's old demos to the Internet. Her most recent album, Femme Fatale, hit No. 1 on Billboard's album charts in 2011. Spears will make her reality TV judge debut on The X Factor this September.
