The wait may soon be over to hear official new music from Britney Spears.
A new Spears single, reportedly titled “Gimme More,” is rumored to be ready to drop as soon as next week, EW.com reports, and it’s not either of the two supposed “tracks” that were leaked online last week.
‘‘People are going to love (the new single),‘‘ a source reportedly said. ‘‘It’s like when Justin came back (with FutureSex/LoveSounds) — she’s got a whole new sound. She’s funky.‘’
The comparison to Justin Timberlake’s sound may be appropriate, as the single was reportedly produced by Nate ‘‘Danjahandz” Hills, a Timbaland protege who has worked with both Timberlake and T.I.
Another “insider” is quoted as saying of Spears's single, ‘‘It’s a smash! She’s going to come out strong. The only question is, with all the drama, are people going to want something fun or something more serious? This is a dance single.”
EW.com notes that ‘‘Gimme More” was the reported name of the music video that Spears was spotted shooting in July, although other online reports at the time claimed the video was called “Get Back.”
Rumors of a pending new album release from Spears have been circulating for months, and while the album still has no official title or release date, a source “close to the top-secret project” told EW.com that it’s expected to hit shelves this fall with little to no promotional setup.
‘‘She’s got more than enough material,‘‘ the source reportedly said.
Representatives for Jive, Spears’ label, did not return calls seeking comment from EW.com.
