Will.I.Am revealed he’s executive producing Britney’s upcoming studio album, but he’ll also join Britney on a track.
Will and Britney have met up numerous times, “talking about our history, and making music, and the things we’ve been through in life and letting that dictate what the music sounds like.”
Britney and Will collaborated for the new song the same time “Scream & Shout” was crafted late last year.
“The other song, I’m not going to say the name of it cos Britney’s fans are gonna come and freakin’ hunt me down and try and get that song from me… but it’s really really good… at some point in time (it will be released), that song is really really good.”
Will told Rolling Stone last week the album will be a glimpse into Britney’s intimate and private world.
“I was like, ‘OK, look, guys, me and Britney need to have lunch four times a month for three months before I even try to go in the studio with her, because we need to talk. We need to talk about what she’s excited about in life. I gotta talk about the things that hurt her. I gotta talk about the things that make her concerned – she’s a mother. I gotta talk to her about all the things that her fans want to talk to her about. I gotta be the vehicle between her and her fans.” He added, “We can’t do another song about going on the dance floor. Really? Didn’t we see a bunch of Britney doing that already? Don’t we want to see something that comes from her heart?”
The album is rumored to debut later this year.
