Victoria’s unreleased 2003 hip hop album leaked online earlier this week.
Earlier this week Victoria Beckham suffered the embarrassment of having her unreleased hip hop album leaked online. Recorded in 2003 with Damon Dash, Come Together was probably best left undiscovered and even Boyzone’s Ronan Keating thinks it's proof that Victoria should stick to fashion.
Ronan Keating has given his verdict on Victoria Beckham's Come Together.
Speaking on 'The Kyle and Jackie O Show' Ronan said: “I think Victoria will tell you herself that she wasn't cut out for the music industry.” The Boyzone star did go on to add that Victoria has found her true calling in the fashion world.
17 demos dating from sessions in 2003 for a scrapped 'hip hop album' with Damon Dash, called 'Come Together', surfaced online this week.
We’ve just checked, and no, it isn’t April 1st. Apparently, once upon a time and not in a galaxy far, far away, there was such a thing as a Victoria Beckham hip-hop album.
Just as it sounds on the face of it, the project is not something that anybody involved with it is particularly pleased to remember, but now fans can get the hear what became of the sessions when 17 unreleased demo tracks were leaked online earlier this week, which can now be found on YouTube and SoundCloud, according to Digital Spy.

The music mogul claims he helped Daniels build up his career and saw nothing in return.
Director Lee Daniels (Precious, The Butler) has come under fire from hip hop mogul and Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash. Dash made a substantial investment in six of Daniels' movies, including The Woodsman starring Kevin Bacon, which he put $2m into. He is now suing the director for "unpaid principal, interest and royalties" all of which come to a total of $25 million, according to the lawsuit. The New York Post reports that Dash was also not given his promised producer credit on the films.
According to the Post, Dash's lawyer, Natraj Bhushan, the music producer helped Daniels' career early on and only wants to receive what he is entitled to.
Simply put, Walter (Kevin Bacon) is back in town after serving a 12-year stretch for molesting young girls. He gets a job at a lumberyard where the manager (David Alan Grier, in a rare yet welcome stab at dramatic acting) makes it clear that he only hired Walter due to a family favor. Antisocial to a fault, Walter goes about his work with sullen determination, retreating to his depressing apartment to share the occasional beer with his brother-in-law, Carlos (Benjamin Bratt), the only family member who will even speak to him. Walter goes to a therapist who tries, without much success, to get him to dig a little deeper and to deal with his problem. In the meantime, Walter tries not to stare at the pre-teen schoolgirls who ride the bus he takes to work, and stares sullenly out his window at the schoolyard across the street ("the only landlord in town who'll take my money" he remarks to Carlos's bafflement at his suspicious choice of living quarters).
