The latest dispatch from Britney Album Watch ‘013 is that spunky British badass Charli XCX is working on writing songs for Britney Spears‘ upcoming eighth studio album. Charli told Digital Spy that so far she’s written “one song and it’s a great track and if she likes it then amazing.”
I’ve been doing some writing for the Britney record. I was freaking out. I didn’t even want to go to the session I was so excited. I was so worried I would f**k it up. … I was doing some stuff for that yesterday actually. Who knows how it will go.
Charli shot to prominence this year as the co-writer of Icona Pop’s ubiquitous “I Love It.” She also released her own debut album in April, True Romance. Charli has already proven herself to be edgy and talented and this is just great news all around. A+ everybody.
