Britney Spears has released the tracklisting for 'Britney Jean.'
Britney Spears has released the tracklisting for her forthcoming eighth studio album Britney Jean. The singer has been teasing details about the record for weeks - firstly with an 'album recipe' and later in a Twitter Q&A session - though she's finally given fans some cold hard details.

"Sneaky hackers always trying to ruin my surprises. Here is the TRUE #BritneyJeanTrackList http://smarturl.it/britneyjean pic.twitter.com/YZwfDdwXig," the singer tweeted on Monday after the list had leaked online.
We already knew that Britney was working with Will.i.am on the record, but what the tracklisting reveals is that both rapper T.I and Spears' own sister Jamie Lynn Spears also make appearances. The rapper shows up on Tik Tik Boom while the younger Spears lends her country vocals to Chillin' With You. The younger Spears reivented herself as a country single in Nashville earlier this year.
Another detail of Britney Jean that we already knew was that it was going to be her most personal album to date. We knew that because she told us. But the tracklisting appears to confirm it, with tracks including Alien, Body Ache, Don't Cry and Now That I Found You. This one looks as though it could be an emotional rollercoaster.
The album is already the subject of controversy after song Passenger allegedly leaked over the weekend with fans taking to Twitter alleging that Britney's long-time backup singer Myah Marie provides the bulk of the vocals on the song
Myah hit back at the claims, insisting she "most certainly cannot take credit for [Britney's] tremendous talent as a singer," according to the Daily Mail.
Britney Jean is due for release on December 3, one day after Britney's 32nd birthday.
