"We had songs lined up that were breathtaking, you'll hear some of them on Chris Brown's new album," William Orbit recently revealed, discussing the tracks that failed to make Madonna's latest album MDNA due to time constraints. It's been known for a frustrated producer to overstate the value of their own music when it comes to label politics, but on this occasion it seems Orbit's assertion is wholly acceptable.

"If your heart is a pillow, this love is the bed/ Tell me what is the music, inside my head," Brown croons before the chorus flourishes into a pulse-racing mix of thundering beats and squiggly electronic swizzles that would make the most thrilling Cancun-based rave sound like a relaxed spa break. It's a style Breezy carries off with effortless swagger, which leaves us wondering: did Madge really pass on this summer's biggest anthem?
