Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's "Pretty Girls" is finally here.
As with any collaboration of this magnitude, the pair's highly anticipated song leaked a day early on Saturday. Azalea, who lifted her Twitter ban briefly, addressed her followers and said:
I happened to have noticed that pretty girls, my song with @britneyspears has leaked and is on some radio stations etc... I'm really really happy to see so many people loving it but i also just want to clarify its not an "early" release its a leak and if you can we would really appreciate everyone holding out until monday to share links etc if possible (i know its hard, I'm excited too!) Also for the record brit and i are both singing the chorus's together... i guess you guys aren't used to hearing my singing voice :-) saw some people missed that aspect, maybe when we perform it it will be more obvious hahaha.
Spears wanted to do something different with the release of her new single. Before the song hit radio or online, she created a limited amount of Britney-branded SUVs decked out in black and yellow bumble bee print that drove around Los Angeles to play the song for a few lucky Uber riders.
“Pretty Girls” will have a video coming on May 11. The visuals are inspired by the sci-fi comedy Earth Girls Are Easy (a movie about three aliens befriending a California girl) and embodies a ‘80s theme. It’s also directed by Azalea, where photos of them dressed in their characters appeared online last month.
Give “Pretty Girls,” which is produced by The Invisible Men, a listen above and purchase the song on iTunes now. Do we have our new "Fancy" of 2015?
UPDATE 5/13/15: The video for Britney and Iggy's sugar pop collaboration is now out, and it pretty much follows the narrative set in the song's lyricism. Britney and Iggy act ditzy, wear '80s style clothing, and do whatever they want, whether it's in the streets or at the club. Must be nice.
