Britney Spears is working on a new album, but she isn’t rushing the process. As a matter of fact, the pop singer has no idea when her new album is coming out. “I’m gonna do a new album slowly but surely. There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools, adding new sports and stuff like that,” Spears told Billboard magazine. Spears says she is going to try to put a great album, but her priority right now is being a good mother to her two sons. 

The pop singer’s manager, Larry Rudolph, doesn’t think albums are as important as they used to be. “We’re not really talking seriously about a new album yet. Albums just aren’t as important in the digital age as they used to be,” Rudolph told Billboard. He added, “Right now we’re just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come. Britney will get to one [an album] eventually but not right now.” Spears is currently working on a new song with rapper Iggy Azalea

The pop singer’s last album, Britney Jean, was released in 2013. The project reached the Number 4 position on the Billboard 200, after selling 107,000 copies in its first week. Two singles were dropped from the album including “Work Bitch” and “Perfume.” “Work Bitch” peaked at Number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Perfume” reached Number 76 on the Hot 100 chart. To date, Britney Jean is the pop singer’s lowest charting album. Spears’ debut studio album, …Baby One More Time, has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. It is the best-selling project by a teenage solo artist in music history. 

Britney Spears has been performing at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas since 2013, for which she initially signed a residency deal for $310,000 per show (fifty shows). The pop star’s new deal is reportedly worth $475,000 per show (140 shows). Her Las Vegas residency deal will supposedly run through the end of this year. Spears and Planet Hollywood are currently negotiating a new deal, which will extend her residency to 2017. This year, the pop singer’s shows have accumulated more than $40 million in ticket sales.
