Britney Returns to Music With Elton John Duet

Britney Spears is making her long-awaited comeback to record a duet with legendary British musician Elton John.

According to Page Six, the 40-year-old singer quietly met with John, 75, at a Beverly Hills recording studio to record a new version of Elton’s 1971 classic “Tiny Dancer” last week.

A music industry source told the media: “This was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan. They have recorded a remix of “Tiny Dancer” as a full duet — and it is incredible.”

“Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills last week with Elton for the super-secret recording session overseen by uber-producer Andrew Watt,” the source added.

Universal Music is reportedly set to release the track next month, the insider teased.

Watt is a famous producer who has gained popularity after producing albums for Justin Biever, Pearl Jam, Miley Cyrus, and Ozzy Osbourne. He won the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year in 2021, despite having his studio in his home’s basement.

According to the music industry source, Britney and Elton have played the track to people on their record labels. “Everybody is freaking out. It is so good. They are saying this is going to be the song of the summer.”

“Britney is officially back. She’s back to work, and she’s super excited,” the insider added.

The “Baby One More Time” singer has hinted multiple times that she is ready to return to business after her controversial 13-year conservatorship ended in November last year. Less than two weeks ago, she posted a video of herself singing an edgier version of her 1998 hit, writing that she hadn’t shared her voice “in an extremely long time…maybe too long.”

Spears said she had long wanted to release a new version of “Baby One More Time,” a track from her diamond-award-winning, same-name album, but her plans were stymied by the conservatorship and legal battle against her father.

The new version of “Tiny Dancer” will be her first official single since “Slumber Party,” recorded and released in 2016 for her album “Glory.”
