will.i.am Leaks Britney Spears ‘Big Fat Bass’ Collaboration
will.i.am has posted a 30-second teaser of a track he worked on with Britney Spears, entitled “Big Fat Bass.” The Black Eyed Pea joins a handful of producers who have leaked their work with Britney; this is the fourth leaked track from her upcoming album Femme Fatale. Last week, the pop princess previewed three other tracks from the album’s co-executive producer, Dr. Luke: “Inside Out,”“I Wanna Go,” and “How I Roll.”

“I can be the treble baby you can be the bass.”
will also posted updates on his Twitter yesterday about his love for the direction that the album’s producers – Dr. Luke and Max Martin – are taking.
He tweeted, “Im editing the snippet. there are so many parts in this song. I have so many favorite parts. It’s difficult to pick which part to show 1st,” he wrote, going on to discuss all the things he loves about the tune while showing a series of screen images of the audio file. “There are soo many hot parts … the second verse??? I love this section…the beat is nuts here and britney kills it … or the 2nd hook? Because [on] the second half of the first hook the bass build up is crazy … or the breakdown??? At this point a brand new beat is revealed. (The sickest beat) … [that] section is my favorite…my favorite new beat…I’m excited to dj this section…
Will concluded his tweets, saying, “Ok…I’m going to reveal the intro…I will give u a taste of the bass,” and included a link to the 30-second snippet.
Femme Fatale hits U.S. stores on March 29th. It was just announced last week that Britney will be celebrating the release with a special performance on Good Morning America.
