Rodney Jerkins reinventing star for new album

Britney Spears records 'aggressive' new material
Britney Spears’ new album is under way and according to the producer with whom she is working, it’s “real aggressive”.

Rodney Jerkins, who created hits with the likes of TLC, including the enormously successfully ‘No Scrubs’, and Brandy on her ’Full Moon’ album, is collaborating with Spears for the first time in seven years and says the new material is "very dance-y, very up-tempo, in the clubs, real aggressive, and catchy...very, very hook-friendly."

Jerkins told Rap-Up TV that Spears is a fast worker and that he plans to reinvent her sound for the 2009 release.

"It usually takes people a long time to record songs and we just did a song. She walked in at 8:30 and was out by 10:30 -- did the whole song -- in and out. …I love working with her. I'm just trying to reinvent her and reinvent myself with her project."

The pair have been working together for around four weeks and Jerkins says that after after her failed 'comeback' at the MTV Awards last year, the singer is on a new path to success.

"I was very happy to see that she was working on the positive side and she's moving toward new things now. I think it's about to be her time again."
