Britney Spears Writes Songs For Selena Gomez


While we are still all enjoying Britney Spears’s new album Femme Fatale (not to mention her SICK remix for Till the World Ends featuring Nicki Minaj), I am happy to report that we have some NEW Britney music to look forward to. Our dear Britney has penned 3 new songs that will be recorded and featured on Selena Gomez’s new album due out in June! It would appear that Britney has chosen Selena to pass on the torch of popstardom ;) Read on for all the deets.

Prepare to freak out, pop music fans. Selena Gomez recently announced that her next album will be released on Tuesday, June 28. Now, we have another nugget of news about the Disney darling’s new album… and it’s good. It turns out Britney Spears — yes, Britney Spears, y’all — wrote three songs that’ll be on Gomez’s new album. Three cheers for awesome pop collaborations! According to, one of the tracks is “Whiplash,” a song that didn’t make it onto Spears’ recent album “Femme Fatale.” Britney’s producers Dr. Luke and Kevin Rudolph confirmed the news to Billboard Brazil, with Rudolph saying, “The lyrics are like a drug, so catchy! They’re easy, fast and really sexy!”

Wow … this is cool. I’ve heard that Whiplash is a really great song and I was bummed that it didn’t it onto Britney’s album … so I’m really anxious to hear Selena sing it. You may know that Selena Gomez is “dating” Justin Bieber and now she has Britney’s popstar seal of approval? The little girl is blessed, y’all. I’ve never heard any of Selena’s music before but I am deffo planning to pick up a copy of her new album cuz I gotta hear these new Britney tracks :) Wee!!

    Oooh! I love this! Neither of them have fabulous range or stellar voices, but have ridiculously catchy pop ditties. I’m excited! Both are definitely some of my guilty pleasures. :)

  • Sabrina

    Am I the only one who thinks it is weird that Brit doesn’t write songs for herself, but is writing for other people?
    I’m excited to hear them nonetheless, but weird.

    And hooray for Selena getting the stamp of approval from Brit! I hope that means she’ll be around for a long time too! She’s so adorable and fantastic.

    • Zanne

      Yes, Sabrina, I think it’s really weird that Britney writes music for others and not herself. To me, that says that what she writes isn’t deemed “good enough” or “marketable enough” to her fans. Britney seems like a nice person so this isn’t anything against her personally but when it comes to her professional persona, it doesn’t seem like she has an ounce of control over that. It seems to me that she’s just a commodity that her managers and producers mold into whatever they want in order to sell the most CDs or concert tickets. But that’s just my perception. :)

    • @Sabrina — Britney does write songs for herself, they just don’t all get picked for her albums. Scary, a bonus track on Femme Fatale, was written by Britney. If she writes songs that don’t get used, they get offered to other artists. It happens all the time.

      i actually think that is weird to all tho i am a big fan of both that is very weird

    Trent, you should totally check out some of Selena’s music. It’s very fun and lighthearted for the most part. Not the most advanced stuff out there, but cute. :) She has a great voice, and actually sings LIVE when in concert. Big plus if you ask me.

  • Ama

    This is great news to read. I like Selena, as an actress I think she has a lot of talent. As a musician-she is still growing but shows a lot of potential. She is also a level headed young woman and I’m sure she will go far in both acting and music.

    Here is the video for Selena’s song “Who says” if you want to give it a listen:

    I’m curious to see how these new songs sound. I’m sure they will be good :)

  • Carrie

    Trent, I completely agree. As the mother of 2 young girls, I love Selena. She is adorable, not skanky, can sing, and seems to have a reasonable head on her shoulders (dating the Biebs notwithstanding). She is the anti-Miley and I sincerely hope she stays that way. While my kids don’t enjoy her TV show, they do love her music. Her cover of “Magic” is good, and I find myself singing “Naturally” and especially “Who Says” all the time. They’re even on MY iPod playlist!

  • Kieren

    It’s sad that everyone tears Britney apart for not writing her own material, yet the truth is that she does and her handlers won’t allow her material to be used on her albums. Britney seriously needs to break free from her conservorship and get away from all of these people controlling her and drugging her up.

  • errin

    Britney spears wrote songs? Should we be expecring a song like “my headband” from glee?

  • errin

    Expecting* I suppose if I’m going to talk trash about someone writing I should be able to spell… haha

  • jacqui

    Aw cute.

  • Dana

    Britney probably co-wrote with someone.Like all the other pretend songwriters like Avril and Christina Aguilera.

  • nicole

    i adore Salena, she has a few songs that i liked on her last album. and im glad someone big in the pop world is backing her. hope she stick around for a while, be it in movies or music

  • Brady

    I love love love selena for reals she is amazing! I loved both her albums and even tho her boice is thin I love the way she sings I would totally accept her right next to britney on the hall of fame!

  • Michael

    I’m excited to hear new music from Selena, especially the Britney written tracks. :)

    Trent, if you’re going to listen to any Selena Gomez, here’s the essentials:
    – Off The Chain (Addictive chorus)
    – A Year Without Rain
    – Round & Round (Dance/pop track – really addictive)
    – Rock God (Katy Perry written track)
    – Naturally (Super catchy)

  • Chad

  • ara

    I thought she wrote Everytime I am not a huge Britney Spears fan but I do like some of her songs and I know she has written a few herself. Selena Gomez is cute my niece just went to the show Wizards of Waverly Place and she was nice enough to take a picture with her and that made my niece’s year lol so she’s cool in my book for that alone.

    • robbie mathews

      Um she wrote everytime and me against the music with maddona she has written a fair bit but people like to tear her down and not look at her as a real artist

  • Dragonfly
