Madonna’s producer thinks he knows why the pop icon's latest album MDNA failed miserably.
Legendary producer William Orbit took to Facebook earlier this month to explain his views on it being a record-setting failure.
Orbit, who has previously teamed up with Madonna to great success, claims the best songs for MDNA went to Chris Brown.
During a recent debate with fans on his Facebook page, Orbit gave two reasons for album’s lack of sales success.
He told the pop icon's admirers that the best songs written for the 53-year-old singer went to troubled star Chris Brown.
He also admitted that they were strapped for time because of Madonna's business commitments.
Orbit, 55, who produced the singer's 1998 smash hit Ray of Light, said: 'We were very pushed for time due to… various pressing commitment that took up the artist’s limited time such as perfume ranges and teen fashion contests and other such endeavors.'
He added: ' We had songs lined up that were breathtaking, you’ll hear some of them on Chris Brown’s new album, Kreayshawn’s (INCREDIBLE) new album and my own, recently completed Strange Cargo album.
'Most of them, I believe, destined to become classics (let me know in a couple of months whether you concur with that).
'All of us fully committed to putting ourselves through extraordinary efforts to make MDNA the greatest album of the year, but alas the time wasn’t there.'
Days later he backed away from his controversial comments tweeting: 'The MDNA comments. I should not have said them publicly. I see that and I regret that I said online. Not fair to M.'
MDNA debuted at the top of the U.S. album charts in April, selling 359,000 copies in its first week of release.
But experts say the CD's first-week sales were inflated by copies that were bundled with the purchase of some concert tickets for Madonna's upcoming tour.
According to Forbes Magazine, sales of the album dropped 86 percent to around 48,000 in its second week in stores.
The massive decrease set a record for biggest sales drop for a number one album since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991.
Chris Brown's new CD Fortune is scheduled to be released on 3 July in the US.
Orbit worked on the remix for the new single Don’t Wake Me Up but he is apparently unhappy with the way he was credited on the track.
Today his tweeted: 'Chris Brown 'Don't Wake Me Up' (says 'WO remix', tho actually am co-writer + co-producer with Free School').'
