Britney Spears joins Will.i.am on a new song called ‘Mind Your Business’ – listen below.
The track, announced earlier this week, follows the two artists’ collaboration on 2012’s #1 ‘Scream & Shout’.
“Mind your business soith,” Spears sings over club synths before an electronic beat is introduced. According to a press release, “the duo’s unmatched attitude and energy take the song to new heights.”
“The irresistible hook and contagious energy of ‘Mind Your Business’ confirms its status as the ultimate song of 2023,” he says.
During a recent interview with CBS Mornings (via Variety), Will.i.am explained: “I’ve been a fan, friend and supporter of Britney over the years.
“Support as someone who goes out and listens to her music, support as someone who is there to help protect her in her days when she was fighting for her release. She’s a great person.”
The Black Eyed Peas member, soloist and producer also appeared on Spears’ song ‘It Should Be Easy’, which was on her eighth studio album ‘Britney Jean’ (2013). He is credited as a co-producer on that track, as well as other cuts on the album.
Mind Your Business” is the intro to Will.i.am’s upcoming fifth solo album, following Lil Wayne’s “The Formula.”
Last year, Spears teamed up with Elton John on the single “Hold Me Closer,” a reimagined version of her hit “Tiny Dancer.”
The song was Spears’ first new release since she was released from her 13-year hiatus in late 2021. Created by her father, Jamie Spears, the hiatus started in 2008 and sparked the #FreeBritney movement.
Earlier this month, Spears announced the details of her long-awaited memoir, titled The Woman In Me: “It’s here, my story, on my terms … finally. Are you ready?” wrote the pop star in a post on social media.
