Two music legends quietly met last week when Britney Spears 40, and Elton John, 75, reportedly met in Beverly Hills at a studio to record a duet last week! Brit and Elton have collaborated on a new version of his iconic 1971 hit ‘Tiny Dancer’. A source confirmed the news to HollywoodLife.
According page 6, Universal Music will release the inevitable hit in August. “It was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a big fan of it,” a music industry insider said. “They recorded a full duet remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ – and it’s amazing. Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills last week with Elton for the super-secret recording session overseen by the super-producer Andrew Watt.”
The source also talked about the initial reaction from people who heard the song. “They’ve already played it for their record company people, and everyone’s freaking out,” they told the outlet. “It’s so good. They say it’s going to be the song of the summer. And of course, they highlighted the biggest news of all: ‘Britney is officially back,’ the source said page 6. “She’s back at work and she’s super excited.”
It’s been a huge year for Britney, so a musical comeback seems like the next logical step. After gaining independence from her restrictive legal guardianship of 13 years in November, she finally married longtime love Sam Asghari, 28, in a lavish fairytale wedding. Britney also threw herself into an incredible $12 million mansion in an exclusive enclave of Calabasas, California.
The news is especially exciting, given that in 2020 the Princess of Pop was “far from” a return to her old life as a Princess of Pop. “Britney has no plans to make new music anytime soon,” a source says HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY in April 2020. “Britney shares with those close to her that she would love to return to music one day again, but she is far from it.”
Gaining independence was probably the motivation Britney needed to delight her fans with a new song, and we’re definitely here for it!
