Britney Spears may have finally announced the September 16 release date to album eight’s lead single “Work Bitch,” but that doesn’t mean the demand for details about the song has waned. So on Wednesday (September 11), Spears took to Instagram to post the track’s lyric sheet and writing credits. While the lyrics were blurred out (Brit, you sneaky minx!), now we know the international brain trust behind the song.
The song was written by Spears herself, along with the album’s executive producer will.i.am, Sebastian Ingrosso (one third of Swedish House Mafia), Swedish DJ Otto Knows (real name Otto Jettman), Irish singer/songwriter Ruth-Anne Cunningham (who has written for JoJo) and Will’s collaborator Antony (/Anthony) Preston. Sounds like “Work Bitch” took a lot of work, bitch (sorry).
