Will.i.am: Britney Spears' new record is 'monster'

Britney Spears is putting the finishing touches on her new album "Femme Fatale," due out March 29, and that includes a collaboration with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am.

"In the studio with @iamwill…you guys are gonna love this one," Spears announced on Twitter yesterday.

Now will.i.am is telling CNN exactly what to expect.

"It's a monster!" he said at last night's L.A. premiere of the 3-D film "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." "It's like... mean, but pretty. It's edgy. It's next level. But the beat, it's got beat and she's singing fresh over it. It's something that today needs."

As for what it was like working with the pop princess, will.i.am told CNN, "Britney is the sweetest person. So sweet. So excited about music. And I can't wait till the people hear it."

    Her new record will probably be just as good as his superbowl halftime performance.

    Wow I never knew people can be so jealous of a person. Well have any of you sold over 50 million records? I doubt that. If you have nothing good to say then don't say it. Peace.

    Who's Britney Spears? Doesn't she do those Weight Watchers commercials? Or is that the hair color ones?

    Hey guys... remember me... "Leave Britney alone!!!" I have a recording career now too, and its going to be greater than Britney Spears.

    I think she's still doing music because maybe, just a guess here, she has a passion for it! Wow what a concept. good for her I hope she does make a comeback I was a fan for her when we both were younger. Most people work AND take care of their kids-and she's a single mother, so yeah if her work is singing of course she's still going to do it anyway in order to provide for her kids-so in a way she is focused on her kids. I mean, who else is going to provide for them?

    Yes Will, the world needs more auto-tune and computer manipulated sounds with the addition of club beats. Give me a freaking break. Britney has lost her singing ability, and it's time to call it quits. She needs to take care of her children, and actually be a normal mother for once.

      Kevin: I beg to disagree on one point. Britney has not lost her vocal talent because, as the great Muddy Waters used to sing, "you can't lose what you ain't never had."

    This guy will kiss anyone's rear to get ahead as his music obviously cannot stand alone. First Fergie and now Britney.
