While Max Martin and Dr. Luke oversaw Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, the pop maestros only actually produced five of the album’s 12 tracks. Likewise, the pair are overseeing Britney Spears’ forthcoming seventh studio LP—a project that very few concrete details have emerged about. But now, thanks to tweets from Dr. Luke and Spears’ manager, we at least know the dream team behind “Hold It Against Me” are also working the boards for the follow-up single.
“britney’s 2nd single gonna be fire!!!!!! watch out!!!!!!” Dr. Luke tweeted on Sunday. This prompted Britney’s manager Adam Leber to reply, “Never thought you and #MaxMartin would beat HIAM but I think the impossible has been achieved. Get ready world…..”
Last night, Leber was at it again, stoking excitement amongst fans of the photogenic singer. “Amazing day in the studio today,” he wrote on Twitter. “You guys should be very excited. This album is going to be incredible. Dare I say the best yet?”
Billboard reported yesterday that Spears’ current single “Hold It Against Me,” which was released last week, is expected to top the upcoming Hot 100 chart. This would give the singer a total of four #1 singles in the U.S., following “…Baby One More Time,” “Womanizer” and “3.”
Do you think “Hold It Against Me” will go down in pop history as one of Britney’s greatest jams?
