Britney Spears & Elton John's Huge Collab Proves Her Fans Were Right All Along

We've all waited for this day. Britney Spears ends her year-long music hiatus to record a duet with none other than Sir Elton John.

It has been too long since we’ve heard new music from Britney Spears. The pop superstar announced in 2021 on her @BritneySpears Instagram account that she would no longer perform as long as she was still battling her court-ordered conservatorship.

"I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I say, do, or think!”

To the delight of all, Spears was finally released from her nearly 14-year conservatorship and the draconian control her father had over her life. And the newlywed is making the most of her newfound freedom; she’s married her long-time love Sam Asghari and now she’s making her long-awaited comeback to reclaim her spot as one of the most beloved pop stars of her generation.

Leave it to Spears to make her come back epically. Not only is she returning to the studio on her own terms but she is collaborating with legend Sir Elton John on a duet of one of his most famous songs.

And the reviews are in! According to Page Six, “This was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan. They have recorded a remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ as a full duet — and it is incredible."

Britney and Elton met up last week at a studio in Beverly Hills to record the duet. “Tiny Dancer” is set to be released next month and it will be Spears' first single since 2016’s “Slumber Party.”

“Tiny Dancer” was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and was originally released on his 1971 album Madman Across the Water.” It was released as a single in 1972 and reached #41 on the charts. It was hindered by its more than six-minute length. In 2021, Rolling Stone named “Tiny Dancer” the 47th song on its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. 

Britney’s fans are going nuts over the news. The account @britneycharts tweeted, “Tiny Dancer is the perfect song for Britney, cause she’s tiny and a dancer.”

Britney has indicated she’s ready to get back to work and she’s excited about it. She recently shared an Instagram Story of her grooving out and singing a sultry, more adult version of her classic 1998 song “…Baby One More Time.” In her Instagram caption, she wrote, “… I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time … maybe too long …”

She hasn't worked since 2019 when she took an indefinite hiatus but fans can get their Spears fix from her personal account. While her posts showcasing her dancing, vacationing, and singing have held us over, knowing she is back in the studio is the news fans have been waiting for.

As Page Six says, "people are 'freaking out' after hearing the song, and 'Britney is officially back.'" 

What Can Britney Spears Teach Us?

Of course, most can't take the time off that millionaires can. It took Spears years to extract herself from her conservatorship, a team of lawyers, and a #FreeBritney movement, but she stuck to her guns and proved that she was competent to run her own life.

Britney shows us that we have to fight for what we believe in and what we know is right for us. Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle. We need to shine like the stars we are and make the choices that work for our own lives. It's the idea of standing up for yourself and unacceptable work environments, and knowing that, "No" is a complete sentence.
