Claude Kelly Talks Britney & Album 8

Claude Kelly, who wrote “Circus” and “Gasoline,” says he’s brainstorming ideas for Britney’s eighth studio album with producers Danja and Ammo.

Britney’s next album will have a hip-hop flare, but Claude tells Rap-Up.com he’s not taking that into consideration when he begins crafting her next hit.

“When I write for her, I kinda ignore the directions. I just write what I think is a great pop song, and I’ve been lucky that she’s taken it two albums now.”

Completely agree! Come up with a song that’s unique and innovative over having a seed planted in your head about what it should sound like. However, let’s have it sound more “Circus” than “Gasoline,” please.
