Britney Spears announces that “something is afoot” on social networks and then deletes the message

Music news

While the debate continues on social networks and in the media around the return or rejection of the return of Britney Spears To the music industry, the singer has surprised with a fleeting publication that has reignited the flame.

“Something is on the way,” tweeted the Princess of pop in the early hours of last Friday. A message that did not last too long on his official profile since it disappeared after a few hours. What would the artist be referring to with her message?

Many point to something related to the 25th anniversary of the Princess of Pop’s recording debut. In 1999 we discovered that musical hurricane that was the American with her album …Baby one more time. The album, in fact, was released on January 12 of that year, exactly the same day that Britney Spears tweeted her message 25 years after her.

In recent weeks there have been many rumors suggesting that there would be several composers as well as producers involved (such as Charli XCX, Will.I.Am…) in a supposed musical return of the performer. 2023 marked the musical return of Britney Spears, although with a certain trick since the leader of the Black Eyed Peas and the Princess of Pop took the opportunity to give a second push to a previous idea that they updated to publish Mind your business. A first step that could soon have a continuation as confirmed by the artist herself through her social networks.

However, in 2024, the Princess of Pop has put all rumors to rest. “To be clear, most of the news is garbage! They keep saying I’m going to use random people to make a new album. “I will never return to the music industry!!!” Britney Spears wrote in an Instagram post, thus denying the information that she was working on a new album. “When I write, I write for fun or I write for others people. I’ve written over twenty songs for other people in the last two years. “I’m a ghost songwriter and I honestly enjoy it that way.”

Now we can only wait to see if Britney Spears’ musical era is really over forever or if this year we will have a special reissue with unreleased material from that album that changed the course of pop at the end of the 20th century.
