Britney Spears will be featured on Giorgio Moroder’s new album entitled Deja Vu. The project will be released on June 12th, and the Spears collaboration has already surfaced online. The pop singer recreated Susanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner,” which has been transformed into a pop-electronic infused record.
The pop singer also collaborated on a song with Iggy Azalea entitled “Pretty Girls.” The single is expected to debut on May 17th at the Billboard Music Awards. Spears confirmed on Twitter that she and Azalea will hit the stage to perform their new single: “Time to put the rumors to bed & take #PrettyGirls to the stage! CAN’T WAIT to perform w/ @IggyAzalea at the #BBMAs.”
Azalea recently revealed a few details regarding the “Pretty Girls” music video. The rapper said the video will have a 1980s theme, but Azalea made it very clear that she isn’t dancing in the music video. “I didn’t dance. She [Spears] wanted me to. Since I was co-directing the video, the way I explained it was- it would be kind of obnoxious for me to direct a video and give myself a dance break as well,” Azalea told USA Today. She continued,”I don’t know if it necessarily fits my identity, but I think Britney’s identity is really embedded in being a dancer.”
Azalea said there is a lot of dancing in the video, but the video is a little more complex than a typical dance video. “It’s a little bit more complicated than that. You know me, I like having a narrative. So if it was just like 80s, that would be kind of boring for me,” Azalea stated. The rapper added,”What Britney made clear to me is that she really wanted to do a video where she got to dress up and play a character. That was really important to her and she liked a lot of the things I’ve done that were inspired by movies and stuff.”
Spears just returned to Las Vegas to resume her Piece of Me residency at the Axis Theatre in Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. The singer took a break for performing shows, but she returned a couple of days ago. Spears’ new residency at Planet Hollywood has already earned a reported $46 million dollars.
