Ooooh, it looks like this music video is going to be FUN! I understand the choreography is going to be very upbeat and technical, something we haven’t seen from our dear Britney in some time. My fave of Britney’s videos are the ones where she is dancing her ass off. After the jump, check out a few more photos of Britney and her dancers on the set of the 3 music video shoot …
Sexay, sexay!! No word on when the video will be released but I suspect it’ll be ready by the time Britney Spears: The Singles Collection hits stores on November 24. Looooove it!!
