Britney Spears has returned with yet another party anthem! Unfortunately, the X Factor judge was not able to release the new track on her own terms. Following an early leak of super hyped single Work Bitch, Britney decided to go ahead with the official release, well ahead of schedule.
These days, internet hype is a huge part of any music release. But sometimes, the very tool used to get fans excited also winds up destroying a much-anticipated debut. Such was the case the other day, when Britney Spears found her latest track Work Bitch leaked nearly a full day before the intended release.
Britney shared her disappointment via social media, tweeting, “Woke up today and saw that a low quality version of Work Bitch had leaked.” From there, she made it clear that she intended to get the official version out on iTunes as quickly as possible, explaining to fans, “I worked SOOO hard on this song! Can’t wait for you all to hear it like you’re supposed to…”
Looks like the effort proved successful — at this very moment, fans are busy downloading the single. So far, the reaction is decidedly enthusiastic, with many proclaiming Work Bitch the ultimate dance track for fall 2013. And while fans did their best to launch Britney to the top of the iTunes chart, the singer offered up plenty of gratitude. She later tweeted, “I am truly overwhelmed and so grateful for all of your support. The Britney Army is amazing. I may have teared up a little.”
