Can you handle it?
Britney Spears's new single is ready and could drop as early as next week, according to Entertainment Weekly. The song, called "Gimme More," is produced by Timbaland protege Nate ''Danjahandz'' Hills, and is said to be the track that Britney was filming a video for in July. You know, when she was wearing that hideous stripper outfit?
Anyway, the buzz is that the new song is an up-beat club song and -- get this -- it's good! ''People are going to love [the new single],'' raved a source. ''It's like when Justin [Timberlake] came back -- she's got a whole new sound. She's funky.''
A different insider, who's heard the new sound, is also loving it. ''It's a smash! She's going to come out strong. The only question is, with all the drama, are people going to want something fun or something more serious? This is a dance single.''
Do you believe it? I want to. I want to love the song. I want to be singing it in my car and dancing to it in the shower. I always root for the underdog -- even when it's a train wreck like Britney -- that's just how I roll.
