Britney Spears has made a name for herself in the music world as a pop superstar, and many fans can still sing the lyrics to “Baby One More Time” and “Oops!…I Did It Again” at the exit of a cap. Now, the singer would return to music with her first new single in over five years after a secret recording session, alongside another musical legend: Elton John.
Spears and John secretly recorded a duet version of “Tiny Dancer,” according to Page Six, which also quotes a music industry insider saying this about the collaboration:
The so-called “super-secret recording session” didn’t stay secret for too long, but the news of a Britney Spears/Elton John duo is something that will delight fans of both singers. “Tiny Dancer” is, of course, one of John’s best-known songs, and it’s only fitting that Spears’ return to music should be alongside someone she’s already a fan of. The source further told the outlet that people at their record company were “freaking out” after hearing the song, and “Britney is officially back.” Representatives for the two musicians and the label have not officially commented at the time of writing. The song is slated for release in August.
Britney Spears hasn’t released a new album since 2016, when she released Glory as his ninth studio album. Three songs – “Private Show”, “Clumsy” and “Do You Wanna Come Over?” – were released as a single this year, and then nothing new from the singer since. In 2021, she claimed she was not allowed to perform new music during her conservatorship (which officially ended after 13 years in November of that year).
The singer has continued to perform in the years since the most recent release of new music in 2016, although she decided in 2020 that she was not planning any future performances, which led to another hurdle. in his trial under conservatorship, which wouldn’t be terminated for more than a year. Her fiancé (and now husband) Sam Asghari hinted last year that fans might see her back on stage. Although she hasn’t started gigging again, a single pairing her with Elton John is worth celebrating.
The report of Spears’ return to music comes just under two weeks after she took to Instagram with a new version of her “Baby One More Time,” with some changes. Her caption said she hadn’t shared her voice in a long time. Looked:
There are currently no details on when the Britney Spears/Elton John duo of “Tiny Dancer” will debut, but it’s good to see that Spears is ready to return to the music business. It’s been an eventful summer for her, after she was finally able to marry longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé Sam Asghari. Although her ex tried to crash her marriage, footage she released afterward showed that it happened like a fairy tale anyway. Let’s hope the future continues to be bright for the singer.
