Britney Spears writes new lyrics for Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ as they team up for a duet

IT is one of Elton John’s most beloved songs, the lyrics of which are known to millions of people around the world.

But you may have to relearn Tiny Dancer when you hear the new version he created with Britney Spears.

He teamed up with the American superstar for a 1971 tune, and I can report that she tweaked the lyrics and offered to sing a new verse for a remix due out later this month.

The single, which will be titled Hold Me Closer, will be her first single in six years.

But it won’t be a straightforward Tiny Dancer cover, as it also features clever samples from other songs released by Elton, including his 1992 track The One.

The move echoes Elton’s hit single “Cold Heart” with Dua Lipa last summer, which gave him his first UK No. 1 in 16 years.

The monster track features elements of Rocket Man, Sacrifice and Kiss The Bride, as well as a track from the 1976 album Where’s The Shoorah?

A source said: “Elton has helped countless artists over the years, both publicly and privately, and was well aware of Britney’s struggle to escape her custody.

“They have known each other for many years, and Elton personally invited Britt to a number of his famous Oscar parties.

“He genuinely wants the best for her and hearing them together on a track is amazing.

“He really wanted to make it clear that they are both on an equal footing when it comes to loans.

“It will be Elton John, Britney Spears – she will not just be a popular artist.

“And she’ll get the money she deserves from her earnings.”

Although Tiny Dancer was not originally released as a single in the UK, the remix by Ironik and Chipmunk peaked at No. 3 here in 2009.

The new song was recorded earlier this summer, and Britney’s friend Paris Hilton revealed this week that she already had a preview.

Speaking enthusiastically about the collaboration, Paris said: “I heard about it a couple of days ago in Ibiza. It will be iconic. This is madness.”

Speaking of her love for Elton, Britney previously said, “I am the biggest fan of his in the world. Me and my mom, we love him to death.”

It’s safe to say that he’s also a British fan.

HE rose to fame with the boy band BLUE before launching a solo career selling over 700,000 records.

But Simon Webbe was initially rejected from the Noughties because music bosses thought he was “too fun”.

The All Rise singer, who is preparing for the band’s 20th anniversary tour in December along with bandmates Lee Ryan, Anthony Costa and Duncan James, was forced to shave off his hair and wear a vest to win over the record company at an audition.

Duncan recalled: “He had a strange hairstyle, didn’t he? He had bangs.

“He was a very handsome boy, Simon – he was very handsome because he was a model.

“They were like, ‘He looks too feminine, he looks too gay.’

“They didn’t seem to be interested in him at first, but we kept saying, ‘No, you have to see him, he’s great, he’s great, he’s great.’

“Then the record company told him, ‘Go and get your hair cut. So he came back with a skinhead and that changed everything.”

Speaking about Simon on Kate Thornton’s White Wine Question Time podcast, Duncan added: “He had a tank top on, he had muscles showing, he had a skinhead on, and then all of a sudden they were like, ‘Oh, we love him.’ because he cut his hair.”

MOVE over Anthony Joshua, KSI enters the fight as London’s most promising boxer – and still puts out tunes while he’s at it.

Today the rapper released his new single Not Over Yet featuring Tom Grennan and released a Rocky Balboa style video from which my exclusive photos are taken.

He will return to the ring for real on August 27 at London’s O2 Arena when he takes on longtime YouTube rival Alex Wassabi.

In terms of music, KSI has more competition when it comes to the charts as it faces a lot of new entries.

Joel Corrie and Becky Hill have ended their long-awaited collaboration, History, and The Killers are back with a brilliant track called Boy.

TikTok sensation Katie Buser talks about her exes in her new single X&Y, while Maisie Peters is also back today with her single Blonde.

Enough tunes to entertain me this weekend.

Emily’s mom knows best

Getting mom’s approval for her new man clearly means a lot to Emily Atack.

But just in case, she made sure Liam McGough and Kate Robbins met at a distance by taking her boyfriend to her mom’s comedy show.

Their meeting seemed to go smoothly, with Emily grinning as she left The Crazy Coqs with arborist Liam in London’s Soho, with Kate following close behind.

Emily and Liam met through pals, and while tree pruning is a world apart from Emily’s TV career, Liam is familiar with the box himself.

He appeared in the 2007 series Big Brother and was ranked third on Channel 4’s Reality Show Favorite.

Maybe Liam was just a loser back then, but judging by Emily’s smile, he was a winner in her eyes.

Package for Ollie

OLLY Murs has been nominated for a Brit Award six times, but now he’s finally got one after nine-time winner Harry Styles gave him one of his own.

The Troublemaker singer won Harry’s Video of the Year trophy for Sign Of The Times in 2018 because the former One Direction star couldn’t go to the event.

But now he has revealed that it was ultimately given to him.

Speaking to the Heart Bingo blog, Olli explained: “I love the new Harry’s Styles album and I love Harry. Harry gave me his first British for Sign Of The Times.

“He couldn’t make it to the Brit Awards so I hosted it on his behalf. I jokingly said, “I’ll take it because I’ve never won the British.”

“I didn’t think anything about it because when you go backstage you have to give it to one of the producers.

“About two weeks later, a gift arrived at my house and I opened it. It was from Harry saying, “All my love, mate.” And here he is.

And it has my name on it. And, of course, Harry’s name and Sign Of The Times. But I’m like, “I got a British award from Harry Styles!”

It’s easy to get confused between boy bands, but The Vamps star Tristan Evans says his own grandmother confused him for One Direction’s Niall Horan.

In the latest issue of Retro Pop magazine, he said: “My grandmother honestly thought I was Niall for a while.

“She collected posters thinking it was The Vamps, but it’s actually One Direction.”

JAMES Bay has admitted to berating himself when he supported Ed Sheeran on his Divide Tour because he wasn’t as successful as the superstar.

Hold Back The River singer James said he didn’t feel good enough as an artist because he was the opening act during the 2019 walk rather than selling out stadiums.

The star, who released her third album Leap last month, explained: “It’s really disproportionate and probably unhealthy when I think, ‘OK, Ed Sheeran invited me to open for him in football stadiums across Europe for three months, and there are 80,000 spectators.” man every night. Wow’.

“And I don’t feel like admitting – and I can’t wait to admit it – that there’s a voice in my head that says, ‘Why don’t you do stadiums? I call myself all sorts of names. Why isn’t this your show? ”

But speaking on the Diary Of A CEO podcast, James added: “At that moment, I was really grateful to Ed for taking me out in front of such a big crowd because it was great to see my music still succeed.”

Writing on the wall when it comes to what Sam Smith loves on toast.

Earlier this week, the singer went to a tattoo studio in East London and put on her favorite prayer, Marmite.

Sam shared a TikTok video of how it’s done and wrote, “You either love it or you hate it.”
