11 Popular Songs That Were Written For Different Artists Than They Were Made Famous By….


Some say that music is not what it used to be. Perhaps that’s because certain songs are sung, not by who they were intended for. For example, do you remember Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s song, “Telephone”? That song was actually written by Lady Gaga, for Britney Spears. Britney declined it. And Gaga decided to cash in on it, instead. But, wouldn’t it have been better of Britney sang it and performed it, instead? Here are some more similar cases in the industry…
