Britney Spears' producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins confirmed that a leaked demo of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" is indeed sung by Spears.

Jerkins told an online video chat detailed on MTV: "As y'all know, it's been an overwhelming day today. I want to say to all the people on Twitter, all Britney's fans, all the Darkchild fans, I was caught off guard last night with this 'Telephone' leak of Britney.

"I've been asked to leak the version, and I haven't leaked the version, and then last night, there was a version leaked. I really don't know who leaked the version. It was an early demo stage of the version. It wasn't even a mixed version. I would never leak something without Britney's approval, without Larry Rudolph, without Jive Records," Darkchild continued.

Jerkins also talked about Spears' upcoming new album: "On Saturday evening, the night of the [Floyd Mayweather/ Shane Mosley] fight, and we had an incredible conversation about Britney Spears' new album. And we talked about the direction of her album, he gave me some insight into the direction and he wants me to work on stuff for the album."

Jerkins said he is plans to give the fans something great in regards to Spears' new album. "I think the fans deserve it, I think Britney deserves it and I can't wait to get back into the studio with Britney. I'm about to go crazy on making something that's so crazy. Since I've had that conversation with Larry Rudolph, I've studied some stuff from her last album and the Blackout album, and that was great stuff, but I think I'm going to bring something a little bit greater. I'm gonna give it my all to deliver something that's crazy, crazy amazing for Britney."
