Rodney Jerkins: Britney Spears Album Slated for Early 2009

Super producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins has reunited with Britney Spears for her new album for the first time in seven years. (They’re both pictured here to the left in January 2000.)

As late as four weeks ago, Britney and Jerkins were in the studio producing some tracks for Brit‘s as-yet-untitled sixth studio album, which is scheduled for an early 2009 release.

Says Jerkins, “I’m trying to reinvent her and myself. [The new sound is] very dancey, really uptempo, in the clubs, real aggressive, and catchy.”

Watch the complete interview at Rap-Up.com.

And below is the Darkchild remix of the hottttt Britney Spears track “Overprotected.” Check it out to relive the good ol’ days!

    “Overprotected” was pretty amazing back then (and still is now) without a doubt. I hope she can go back to singing songs like that again (as opposed to the modernized/party-like/clamorous type of music.).

  • britneyISaFATcow

    she is a has been loser. she is a big fat cow and looks pregnant all the time. her acne is bad, her hair is bad and her voice is bad. go away.

  • Ayla

    She was gorgeous before. She has come to be just pretty now. Her skin has a bunch of age marks and she just looks way older than she is.
    I love her music though, so I can’t wait to hear her new album :)

  • Zane

    Fat, punani-exposing, mentally ill, UGLY hag. Her career IS over and has been for a good while now. Get over it losers.

  • enough

    #10, 12, 25, and 27…if you don’t like her, why post a comment on this. her career is NOT over…she always has people rooting for her and always will. you people keep your negative comments to yourselves.

  • grace

    I guess we all saw what happened when she got her way and stopped being so “overprotected.”

    That went well!!! Now she has more minders and string pullers than she could have even conceived back then.

    Grass is always greener, Britters. Too bad you couldn’t learn that before you brought two innocent kids into your own personal tsunami.

  • Megan fox rocks

    can’t wait for her new album , you rock Britney

  • brittfan

    I actually like Brittany. I think she is great. I just believe she has made some bad choices. But who hasn’t? The best thing she could do is get back with the people who helped set her career off to begin with. She needs a hugh comeback. One that will help her. She was not ready a year ago with the VMA awards.

  • What

    YAY can’t wait go britney! Blackout was a great album perhaps her best.

    I think the new album should be called Whiteout! Hope she gets herself together.

    I’m 25 yrs. old and I’ve always been a fan of Britney Spears. Her music is really catchy and it makes you dance. I’m in the Entertainment Bizz and I think she’ll be fine. There’s so many things you have to deal with when your as famous as Britney Spears. Imagine everyone reading and watching your every move. It kinda makes you a bit paranoid and cautious. I mean she has to be very careful about what she talks about because little 13 year girls are looking up to her.

    I think it’s time Britney grew up. The 1st half of her new album, Blackout, is all for the little tweens, except Gimme More. I loved that song and the video was just great. I thought she was going for a more grown up sound and image. I was totally wrong. Her follow up video was crap. It’s so being sold to little MTV kids. I hated that video. Then the anime video was alright but still to kiddy like. I want to see her go all out and grown up. She should stop listening to her managers and do her own thing.

    I hope her New Cd coming up in 2009 shows her true self. I like her “Don’t Give a Shit attitude.”

    Gimme More Britney.

  • Oops i did it again

    Im very excited that the pop queen back on track and is going to release a 6th album in 2009 i loved blackout but i didnt think it was her best work so i hope her new album will go back to her good old bubblegum 90s pop music instead so Britney keep on singing and gimme more.

  • chad

    Well. her new album is already out. “Circus” came out on December 2nd, 2008.

  • Mary

    I think her 7th album will be
    “Darkchild”

    Her singles and tracklist:

    1. Love in the air
    2. Darkchikd
    3. Becoming better
    4. Understand
    5. Perfect person
    6. Stay my baby
    7. Many Years to go
    8. Girls Party
    9. Under cover
    10. Out from the under
    11. Flashing
    12. Move with me

    That would be so cool.

    Her first single can be Love in the air.

    Love in the air:

    Britney is at the beach with her boyfriend. They are on rock and they dance.

    GO BRITNEY!
    Her six album was Circus! She should put usual you as her 4th single.

    Seriously get over it then because the new Britney isn’t better nor worse then the old Britney. There the same person and if your a true fan then you’ll love her no matter what she does and you’ll stand by her even when it looks pointless.
