Williams co-produced half of the album alongside Madonna, including the hit single "Give It 2 Me", but the pair didn’t always see eye to eye in the recording studio.
Williams recalled in a US radio interview...
"The gist of it was that we kept doing this one take over and over and I just saw where it was going,
I saw her beginning to get frustrated, so I was trying to get her to deviate from that and just try something different and she was like, ‘I got it!’
Listen, you can’t just talk to me any kind of way,
We went upstairs and had our little battle. It was cool and we hugged it out."
