While there’s been lots of speculation about [artist id=”501686″]Britney Spears[/artist]’ next single, on Tuesday (May 10), it was announced that Spears would release “I Wanna Go” next from Femme Fatale.
The announcement about the track, produced by Max Martin and Shellback (“3,” “If U Seek Amy”), came via Spears fan site Breathe Heavy. “BreatheHeavy.com can officially announce Britney’s third music video off Femme Fatale is ‘I Wanna Go,’ ” the post reads. “The shoot will take place May 25-26 in Los Angeles.”
“I Wanna Go” is a funky dance track about going out, letting loose and having a great time, regardless of the consequences. On the song, Spears coos, “Lately I’ve been stuck imaginin’/ What I wanna do and what I really think, time to blow out/ Be a little inappropriate ’cause I know that everybody’s/ Thinkin’ it when the lights out/ Shame on me/ To need release/ Un-uncontrollably.”
A rep for Spears had not responded to MTV News’ request for confirmation by press time.
This single follows “Hold It Against Me” and “Till the World Ends” (both the album cut and Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha-fied remix ), as Spears readies to hit the road this June with Minaj.
“I feel like Britney kind of has her own genre: If you look at songs like ‘Toxic’ and ‘Piece of Me’ and ‘Oops! … I Did It Again,’ they all were sort of influential and led the way,” Dr. Luke, who worked with Spears on Femme Fatale, recently told MTV News. “She wanted to keep on with that and do stuff that was forward-thinking [for this album]. So we put some dubstep stuff in there, in bridges; snuck it in different places.”
