Britney Spears is reportedly making her much-awaited comeback to music in a duet with the queer icon himself, Elton John.
According to PageSix the singer met with John at a Beverly Hills recording studio last week to secretly record a new version of his 1971 classic “Tiny Dancer”.
It is reportedly set to be released by Universal Music next month.
“This was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan,” one source claimed, “they have recorded a remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ as a full duet – and it is incredible.”
Another source added: “They’ve already played it for people at their record label and everybody is freaking out. It is so good. They are saying this is going to be the song of the summer.”
Her last studio album Glory came out in 2016 and she also released an off-cut single from that album “Swimming In The Stars” in 2020.
This is Britney Spears’ first major music project since she was released from her cruel and controversial conservatorship in November 2021.
Britney did make a soft comeback on her Instagram on 15 July after she uploaded a video of her singing her classic hit “…Baby One More Time”.
In the caption she wrote: “I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time … maybe too long.”
She revealed in the same post that she had been trying to re-record a new version of the song for years while under her conservatorship but without success.
Britney stans have been buzzing at the news of fresh music from the pop singer and have taken to Twitter to show their delight.
One fan wrote: “I can’t believe Britney Spears is actually returning to music! I honestly never thought she would! I’m so happy we’re getting new music and that she’s now able to make music on her terms!”
Another said: “If this is true I will literally ascend to the heavens.”
