Perhaps Britney Spears is a fan of "Fifty Shades."
The 31-year-old singer debuted the music video for her latest single, "Work B***h," on The CW Tuesday night, and the lengthy clip involves whips, chains and a little bondage.
But given that the song is called "Work B***h," you couldn't expect "soft visuals," as the video's director, Ben Mor, told MTV.
"I think this is a more adult Britney, definitely a more adult Britney," Mor said. "There's definitely a lot of surprises that I think people are going to flip over - [we] wanted to set the bar as high as we can."
The video, which is nearly four minutes long, includes the standard Spears hallmarks: seductive dance moves, costume and location changes, and a bikini or two. While the content has a harder edge, Spears' fans are embracing it.
"Overwhelmed with all the love, my goodness!" Spears tweeted Tuesday night. "Big kiss to all of u & Mr Ben Mor!!!"
Spears' next album, her eighth, is due to arrive on December 3.
