In Namie's Sweet July Interview she talks about putting together the album. To those debating about her involvement, you might like to read it. So Namie told the staff about her "vision" and the staff, understanding it, made the selection of 200+ demos. Apparently, Namie judges songs by their intros, so she chose the songs surprisingly quickly. However, sometimes she feels the feel of the intro and the feel of the full song aren't satisfactory. So she did ask for some songs to be changed for her. This is something she doesn't really do and she says _genic might be the first time she went so far as to ask for a song to be changed.
Also, to the people wanting her singles on _genic, if she included them then Golden Touch would be taken off the album so THANK NAMIESUS she didn't do that because Golden Touch is the best in the album.
