When you are doing writing for songs are you contracted by the label or artist to write that song? For example is there a version of loyal out there with you and bobby brackins on it or was the song always meant to go to chris brown.
Secondly, do you write songs knowing it will get more play from someone like chris brown and you get royalties instead of keeping it for yourself?
There is a version of Loyal with only me on it, Bobby was suppose to lay his verse but he never did, he had the producer changed the beat
