Spears describes the dance producer as a "genius", despite his efforts not making the final cut of 'Britney'...
BRITNEY SPEARS has said the songs she recorded with producer BT will not be be used on the US release of her new album.
Speaking at a press conference in the US to promote her forthcoming, eponymous album, Spears said that only 12 of the 24 songs recorded for the record will end up on the finished disc.
As a result, the two songs recorded with BT won’t make the cut.
She said: “I was really disappointed we weren’t able to use the tracks BT had done. He’s a genius in whatever he does, but the type of music he ended up doing didn’t fit me and what I was going for. I think they will be on some of the stuff (released) overseas.”
However, co-writing and production credits on the album are shared with boyfriend Justin Timberlake of *NSYNC, uber-producer Rodney Jerkins and The Neptunes, who produced current single ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’, helped make the teen-star “nastier and funkier”.
She continued: “I was inspired by a lot of hip-hop and R&B while I was on my last tour. I was inspired by Jay-Z and the Neptune. I told (record label) Jive I really wanted to work with (the Neptunes). I wanted to make (the new album) nastier and funkier.”
‘Britney’ is released in the UK on November 5.
