The X Factor USA: Britney Spears to Premiere will.i.am Collaboration “Scream & Shout”
If it’s anything that we’ve learned from reality singing competitions is that it is the perfect way to revitalize your career. Jennifer Lopez went on American Idol when she wanted to get back in to singing, even helping gain public interest in then hubby Marc Anthony as well. Steven Tyler signed on to American Idol as judge when Aerosmith was on hiatus and jumped ship as soon as he could to record new music. Nicole Scherzinger joined The X Factor to boost her solo career as well. Mariah Carey will do it this season on Idol, and now it’s time for Britney Spears to use The X Factor to promote her new music.
Britney just released her newest single, “Scream & Shout,” a duet with will.I.am. The song was released to iTunes and radio November 19th and now America’s sultry sweetheart will debut the new video next week on the results show. The video was directed by Ben Mor and will be available immediately on VEVO after the premiere.
“To be able to work with Britney again was amazing. Working with an artist like Britney is the reason I love making music. She loves music as much as I do. And I am so proud of this new song ‘Scream & Shout.’ This is the most exciting song I’ve worked on in a long time,” will.i.am said in a press statement.
The song is already making headlines as the first collaboration between the two. The new video will appear on the same episode as the return of Josh Krajcik and Alicia Keys.
