My only wish this year is new Britney music.

Robbie Williams is releasing a new holiday album this Friday (November 22) titled The Christmas Present, and if it were up to him, it’d include a duet with Britney Spears.

Williams tells Vice he wanted to record a cover of The Pogues’ “Fairytale Of New York,” but because of the pop star’s precarious personal life, the “Work *****” singer could not commit.

“I wanted to [record “Fairytale Of New York”] with Britney Spears, he said, “but she’s not working, unfortunately.”

This marks the second instance Williams approached Britney for a collab. He wanted a duet with the princess of pop on his 2001 cover album, Swing When You’re Winning, but it never happened.

Looks like we’re sticking with “My Only Wish (This Year)…” this year.

  1. I’ve heard of Robbie wanting to work with Britney before but I never saw how it could ever work… They are so different in sound and even in their personal vibes. I feel like this is one of those cases in which he simply loves her (for obvious reasons -QUEEN!) but it just would never work and he just can’t let go. There’s a reason why she turned him down twice. And omg listen to his choice of song… Robbie is like this super charismatic CIRCUS character, but Britney is, well, the ringleader. Get it, *****.

    1. That Pogues song is so silly sounding, that’s not Britney. She actually has good taste in music, just take a look at her list of covers or simply the songs she chooses for her Instagram videos. Lately she’s in this French mood, but look at the song Robbie sents her way… *smacks face*

  2. I mean yeah I can f*ck with that. I love Robbie Williams growing up. And I probably won’t care no matter how bad the song might be. I just love the idea that Britney has a song with other legends cause it’s a good look and I’ll live for that. It’s something we can brag about.
