TIME: While promoting her sleepwear line back in September, Britney Spears was asked who sheâ€™d most like to collaborate with. Her first answer: â€œKaty Perry.â€ And her second: â€œIggy.â€ No word on whether Spearsâ€™ and Perryâ€™s relationship will expand beyond trading compliments on one anotherâ€™s full-body denim wear, but Iggy Azalea confirmed on Twitter yesterday that she and Spears have something cooking together.
A fan tweeted at the rapper, asking whether she would ever work with Spears. Azalea responded, short and sweet: “I did and it was amazing.”
Beyond â€œamazing,â€ Azalea declined to provide further details on the project. Itâ€™s not yet clear whether the collaboration will appear on Spearsâ€™ next album â€” which she says is coming along â€œvery slowlyâ€ and will likely be â€œvery artsy-fartsyâ€ â€” or Azaleaâ€™s, which may also be a way off, considering that The New Classic just came out this past April (with a re-release due out next week).
Though Azaleaâ€™s earlier work has drawn comparisons to Spears â€” her song â€œNothing Like Meâ€ actually sounds a lot like â€œWomanizerâ€ â€” sheâ€™s much more squarely in the field of rap these days. And a rap-pop duet sounds more interesting than a Britney versus Britney clone duet.
