Scrap That! 7 Pop Perfectionists Who Ditched ENTIRE Albums
There's nothing wrong with being a perfectionist - even if it means scrapping a WHOLE album. These superstars left entire records on the cutting room floor because they just weren't up to scratch.
1. Little Mix
We’ve been waiting what feels like forever for Little Mix’s next album and the girls have just revealed why it’s taken so long – they actually scrapped a whole album in the process! If 'Black Magic' is anything to go by, then maybe it WAS the right decision. More pop classics please, ladies!
2. Justin Bieber
Ahead of his EPIC Comedy Central Roast, Biebs revealed that he'd dropped an entire album because he wanted his music to head in a whole new direction. The 'Boyfriend' star had been hitting the studio with none other than Kanye West!
3. Kanye West
Back in 2013, Kanye did a typically Kanye move and just ditched an entire album because he felt like it. Ye was supposedly working with artists signed to his own label for the record - but it never came to light.
According to The Dream, Beyonce has around 100 unreleased tracks - including a whole album inspired by the Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti - lying on a cutting room floor somewhere. We NEED to hear all of Queen Bey's unreleased material!
5. Iggy Azalea
Iggy has been hard at work on the follow up to 2014's 'The New Classic', but the rapper has recently revealed that it might be a little while in the works as she "scrapped an entire six months of work and started totally new". Perfectionist or what!
6. Drake & Kanye West
Kanye and Drake were working on an album-length collaboration but decided to scrap the record, a fact that only came about when Kanye released 'Wolves' from his forthcoming album 'SWISH'. He explained, "The song came from a conversation me and Drake had where we were supposed to do an album together - it was supposed to be called 'Wolves'. We said we was gonna do it, he was sending beats back and forth."
7. Nicole Scherzinger
Not content with just scrapping one album, Scherzy recently dropped the bombshell that she's shelved FIVE albums worth of work. She said at the time, "I have probably five albums, and I wonder if the songs will ever see the light of day. Maybe one day I'll just release songs for my fans?". We hope so, Nicole!
