Britney Spears’ new album is jam-packed with smash hits, according to RCA Records Executive VP Joe Riccitelli. “Britney’s really working on a fantastic record,” he told Billboard’s Chart Beat podcast. “I’ve heard about four or five songs that I think are just going to be big hits for her.” That’s a ballsy call considering the 34-year-old landed her last solo top 10 hit way back in 2011. The reason for his confidence? “She’s found a really great groove, and she’s working with some new, young producers.”

“We have an A&R person working on the project that’s just really been able to thread the needle, and I’m really excited about it… we’re waiting for her to finish the album.” The label big-wig also gave his two cents on lead single “Make Me (Oooh),” which is rumored to drop on May 20. “I’ve played this track for a lot of people over the last couple of months and the response has been everything I was hoping for and more, so I’m really excited about that. That’ll be a single sometime this summer.”

Britney isn’t taking any chances this era after being burned by the commercial failure of Britney Jean. She has worked with DJ Mustard, BURNS, Mischke Butler, Chantal Kreviazuk, Simon Wilcox and Ian Kirkpatrick. The pop icon has also spent a lot of time in the studio with Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, the songwriters behind Selena Gomez’s “Good For You” and Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.”
