A lot has been made of the Katy Perry vs. Lady Gaga chart face-off this fall, but music fans shouldn’t count out OG pop queen Britney Spears in that fight. Spears dropped her new single “Work Bitch” on Sunday, a day earlier than planned, after a low-quality version of the song leaked online.
The will.i.am-produced song — which clocks in at a robust (for Britney) four-plus minutes — is tailor-made for the dance floor. Spears lets listeners know that, whatever they want in life, whether it be a Bugatti, a Maserati, or a hot body: “You better work, bitch.”
Listen to the full track below:
Spears tweeted about the leak early Sunday before surprising fans with the news that the single would hit radio and iTunes a day early.
