Following up her seventh studio outing "Femme Fatale", pop icon Britney Spears has started writing new material for her next album. Her collaborator, American hip-hop songwriter Elijah Blake reveals the new album is set to surprise her fans and followers with a new sound.
"I think her fans will be surprised by it," Blake said in an interview with That Grape Juice about his work with the famous entertainer. "I would say it's definitely the 'unexpected' Britney in so many ways." Spears, who currently is one of the judges in the highly-popular TV show "The X Factor (US)", found time to work on her 8th album with the Roc Nation label talent in between her judging chores.
A prominent figure in mainstream pop music industry, Spears released her 1997 debut album "...Baby One More Time", which became the best-selling album by a teenage solo artist that catapulted her to stardom. Together with her second studio effort "Oops!...I Did It Again", the album broke records sales and established her as a music superstar.
A much-publicized personal life had also made her somewhat into a pop culture icon. Spears' latest work teams her up with Black Eyed Peas' member will.I.Am for his single "Scream and Shout".
As for Elijah Blake, he became prominent by writing hits for Usher and Rihanna. His recent works include writing songs for R'n'B artist Keyshia Cole.
