Madonna/Britney duet is real!
Britney Spears is hooking up with Madonna once again ? this time for the first single from her forthcoming album, now titled Get in the Zone.
Though Spears was coy about what the first single would be when MTV News talked to her following her NFL Kickoff Live performance (see “Britney Talks New Album But Remains Coy On First Single”), it turns out that the song she previewed that night, “Me Against the Music,” will indeed be her first released track, featuring Madonna. The duo, of course, most recently caused controversy when they locked lips at the MTV Video Music Awards (see “Madonna Smooches With Britney and Christina; Justin, Coldplay Win Big At VMAs”). The single ? co-written by Spears and produced by RedZone ? ships to radio on September 30, with a video set to premiere on MTV on October 13.
Get in the Zone will feature 13 tracks in all, seven of which were co-written by the singer. Some of the tracks slated to be on the album include “Early Mornin’ ” (produced by Moby), “Outrageous” (R. Kelly), “Every Time” (Guy Sigsworth) and “Showdown” (Bloodshy & Avant).
There’s no word yet if the new track Spears unveiled this weekend in Las Vegas, “Breathe on Me,” will also make the final track list (see “Britney Romps On Bed, Loses Her Shirt At Surprise Vegas Show”). Other songs that could be included on Get in the Zone are “The Answer” (P. Diddy), “Shadow” (the Matrix), “Brave New Girl,” and “Touch of My Hand” the latter two of which she previewed for MTV earlier this year (see “Britney Previews LP, Denies Rumors Of ‘Cry Me A River’ Response”).
Get in the Zone is due out November 18.
