‘Oops…I Did It Again’. ‘Toxic‘. ‘Me Against The Music‘. ‘Hold It Against Me‘.
The above, mark only four of the hits responsible for making Britney Spears the most iconic Pop Princess to arrive in the last twenty years. Only right then, that as she prepares to the release of her eighth studio album, that she calls one of the industry’s rising stars to help craft the release.
A Grammy nominated star, by the name of Elijah Blake.
Speaking exclusively to That Grape Juice.Net this week, Blake revealed that he and the ‘X Factor USA’ judge had begun working on cuts for the release, explaining:
“I think her fans will be surprised by it. I would say its definitely the ‘unexpected’ Britney in so many ways, in that she’s playing with new textures and stomping on new grounds and genres”.
The mastermind behind Usher‘s Hot 100 winner ‘Climax’ and Rihanna’s reggae flavored ‘No Love Allowed’, the singer’s comments on the album came days before the release of his Roc Nation backed EP, ‘Bijoux 22′, and weeks after he reportedly joined the star and ‘Telephone‘ producer Darkchild for LA studio sessions.
While Blake couldn’t share any potential release dates for the Pop piece, his news comes as the latest piece of good news for Spears’ fans, who recently took her Will.i.am led single ‘Scream & Shout’ to #2 in the UK, #12 in the US and #3 in South Korea.
