Britney Spears And will.i.am Reunite For Scream & Shout
A few weeks ago, singer and musician will.i.am joined judge Britney Spears on the set of The X Factor in order to help the pop singer accrue the best team possible. Since Spears and will.i.am have worked together in the past, the TV team-up didn’t seem particularly weird; however, now the two have announced a new collaborative single, the team-up seems even more fitting.
Spears and will.i.am are set to release “Scream & Shout” on Monday, November 19 at 3 p.m. The single will first hit homes via U.S. radio. According to Billboard, the two also have a music video in the works, which will premiere on the Thanksgiving night episode of The X Factor. That’s quite a bit less exciting than a live performance from the two would have been, but it’s still a score for The X Factor, which has been rocking out with new music and pulling in some big guest stars, including One Direction, over the past few weeks.
Currently, there is no exact news concerning when the single will leak. Regardless, “Scream & Shout” is set to appear on will.i.am’s upcoming sophomore album, willpower. The last time the two stars collaborated was in 2011, when will.i.am created and produced the track “Big Fat Bass” for Spears. While that song didn’t end up being a hit on the album, I’m still hoping “Scream & Shout” will be a little more worth a listen. The former Black-eyed Peas star is particularly talented and between his energy and her sultry voice, I’m pretty sure they have the capacity to produce a hit.
