I may or may not have started hyperventilating at this news. You may or may not have heard. It hasn't even dropped, yet. But, Britney Spears is releasing a new single on May 5th
… And Iggy Azalea
The song is a joint venture by Queen Britney Spears and I-G-G-Y. The song is labeled as Britney Spears featuring Iggy Azalea. What does it sound like?
The last Britney album, Britney Jean, went largely under appreciated, despite the icon status that “Work Bitch” should be given. This residency tour is sucking the life out of Britney and the album was not promoted the way it needed to be. And, as a member of the Britney Army. It failed.
And, let's be real. “Trouble” is not everything. If it gets radio play, I might throw up. I like Jennifer Hudson and all. I want her to do well, But, is this going to be the “Fancy” of 2015. No. It isn't.
So, Iggy needs this hit. Britney doesn't need it. But, it wouldn't hurt. Now, I don't feel like pairing up with Iggy was necessary. She is reportedly working with Giorgio Moroder on his solo album. He's one of the record producers behind Daft Punk's smash album Random Access Memories. Giorgio will release a hit with Britney on vocals and it will smash the world.
End of a long story. This song is going to slay. I don't doubt that. Apparently Iggy is going to be releasing a new album this year and this is the kick off single. Someone should probably explain to Iggy that if this was her song it would “Iggy Azalea & Britney Spears” instead of “Britney Spears featuring Iggy Azalea”. Sit down.
Cross your fingers that “Pretty Girls” is the anthem we've been waiting for.
