“Boys” will be … spies.
Austin Powers will appear in Britney Spears’ video for “Boys,” the Neptunes-produced next single from Britney (2001) and the first release from the “Austin Powers in Goldmember” soundtrack.
Spears and Mike Myers, the man behind the international man of mystery, are filming the clip in a Hollywood mansion Tuesday (May 14) and Wednesday, according to Spears’ Jive Records spokesperson.
The duo also recently crossed roads (pun intended) at a Pepsi commercial shoot in Los Angeles that will tie into the third Austin Powers flick, due in theaters July 26.
Although it is Destiny’s Child star Beyoncé Knowles who co-stars in “Goldmember,” Spears makes a cameo appearance in the movie as herself (see “Britney Gets Her Shag On For ’Austin Powers’ Sequel” ).
The soundtrack will be released July 16, according to a spokesperson for the album. A track list has not been finalized, though the rep said it will include “Boys” and Knowles’ “Hey, Goldmember,” which was written by Myers and samples K.C. and the Sunshine Band’s 1976 disco hit “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty” (see “Beyonce Records Song Written By Mike Myers For ’Powers’ Flick” ).
After the “Boys” video shoot, Spears will prepare for the second leg of her Dream Within a Dream Tour, which kicks off May 24 in Las Vegas (see “Britney Returns To Vegas For Second Leg Of North American Tour” ).
