Britney Spears‘ eighth album is shaping up to be a major one, with will.i.am taking the lead as executive producer, with Hit-Boy and Naughty Boy hopping on board. The latest producer to be thrown into the mix is William Orbit (best known for his amazing work with Madonna). The producer hinted at a Britney collaboration back in June, and now the singer has confirmed the news.
Will.i.am dropped supernatural hints on Twitter, calling the collaboration “fabulous and out of this world,” with Britney claiming it’s “from another planet” (get it, because of his name?) There is still no official release date for Britney’s new album, but she said it’s coming “MUCH sooner” than we think. And with Katy Perry and Lady Gaga dominating the charts, now is the perfect time for Brit to reclaim the throne as pop princess. View her Twitter exchange with will.i.am below.
