Spears' "Work B*tch" single is set to premiere on radio this upcoming Monday, September 16. Until then, she has been releasing small details about the highly anticipated track. Today, she revealed the songwriters behind the lead single from her eighth studio album on a lyrics sheet (with the lyrics blurred out).
Among the names listed as songwriters on "Work B*tch" are Spears herself and will.i.am. The two previously collaborated on his worldwide hit "Scream & Shout" last year and will.i.am is also the executive producer of Spears' new album so that was no surprise. This will be the second time Spears helps write a lead single on one of her album's following "Me Against the Music" from 2003's "In the Zone."
"Work B*tch" already seems like it will have an EDM-inspired sound. Along with Spears and will.i.am, the song also features a writing credit from Sebastian Ingrosso, a member of the Swedish House Mafia trio. The group went on hiatus in March so the members are once again collaborating with other artists. Otto Jetmann, known as DJ Otto Knows, penned the track with the group as well as will.i.am protege Anthony Preston and singer-songwriter Ruth-Anne Cunningham.
"Work B*tch" will be released to iTunes at 12:01am EST on September 17. She is also set to announce some big news (presumably about her Las Vegas residency) and perform on "Good Morning America" on the same day.
