Britney Spears records Tiny Dancer duet with Elton John

Britney Spears is making her much-anticipated comeback by secretly recording a duet with Elton John from his song “Tiny Dancer,” Vidak For Congress has learned exclusively.

The pop star, 40, met John, 75, at a Beverly Hills recording studio last week to create a new take on his beloved 1971 classic.

The track will be released by Universal Music next month, sources tell us.

“This was Elton’s idea and Britney is a big fan. They recorded a remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ as a full duet – and it’s incredible,” said a music industry insider.

Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills with Elton last week for the top-secret recording session overseen by uber producer Andrew Watt.

Watt, whose studio is located in the basement of his home, has produced albums for the likes of Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pearl Jam and Ozzy Osbourne, and won the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year in 2021.

“They’ve already played it for people on their record label, and everyone is crazy. It’s so good,” teases the source. “They say this is going to be the song of the summer.

“Britney is officially back. She’s back at work and she’s super excited.”

Spears has hinted that she is ready to return to work after her nearly 14-year-old conservatory ended in November 2021.

On July 15, the singer shared an Instagram video in which she sang a new, edgier rendition of her 1998 hit, “…Baby One More Time.”

She wrote in the caption, “I haven’t shared my vote in a long time…maybe too long.”

Spears also explained in the post how eager she was to release an updated version of the song on her eponymous diamond-selling debut album, but that her plans had been thwarted by her conservatorship.

This will be the Grammy winner’s first official single since 2016’s ‘Slumber Party’, which appeared on her album ‘Glory’.

The source tells us that the appetite for Spears’ comeback is so great that she also scored a “record-breaking deal” from the label to record with John.

“Tiny Dancer” was written by John and Bernie Taupin. It was originally released on John’s 1971 album, “Madman Across the Water”, and then as a single in 1972. It was ranked number 47 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2021.

Representatives from Spears, John and their record label did not immediately comment.
