Britney Spears has worked hard to promote her new album and Las Vegas show. Both are set to debut before the end of the year.
The first single from the album was scheduled for release on Monday. However, a low-quality version was leaked online over the weekend.
The leak prompted Spears to release “Work B*tch” a day early.
The dance track features a strong beat, which was created by DJ Otto Knows. The lyrics suggest that fame and fortune are only achieved through hard work.
As reported by CBS News, the album was largely inspired by Britney Spears’ personal life. She specifically mentions her ex-fiance Jason Trawick as an inspiration, pointing out that “breakups suck.”
The album is expected to debut on December 3.
Following months of rumors, Spears confirmed a two-year Las Vegas Show. Britney: Piece of Me will include a combination of new material and her greatest hits.
The show is presented by Planet Hollywood, which is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corporation. As reported by Reuters, Britney: Piece of Me will run for two years and include 50 shows per year.
Tickets for the show will be available beginning September 20.
Britney Spears made her debut on The All New Mickey Mouse Club at the age of 11. In 1999, she reinvented herself as a successful pop star with the release of Baby One More Time.
Spear’s personal life was heavily scrutinized by the media. Her transformation from a Mouseketeer to a sex symbol was simply too much for some people to bear.
Although she was no longer a child, she was often held to incredibly high standards.
Following a highly publicized breakup and custody dispute, Spears eventually entered a rehabilitation facility for treatment.
Britney Spears appears to have grown beyond the controversy to reignite her musical career. Although it has been a long road, Spears says she is “definitely ready” to hit the stage.
