Britney Spears has shared some mysterious and scantily-clad new videos via her Instagram page, causing fans to speculate that there might be some new music from the pop icon in the near future.

On Monday (January 25th), the 34 year old posted a series of videos that showed her in just a bikini, dancing seductively to ‘S.O.B.’ by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’. Their precise purpose wasn’t clear, as Britney didn’t add any captions underneath the videos.

In the three short clips, the mom of two can be seen with new (almost certainly temporary) tattoos on her torso as she gyrates on the floor in a black ensemble, flicking her blonde hair and generally channelling her early ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ years.

Brit is currently taking a six week break from her lengthy Las Vegas residency, in which she’s performing her ‘Britney: Pieces of Me’ revue taking in her back catalogue of hits. While some fans took the videos as a suggestion that a ninth Britney album might be in the pipeline, others suggested that they could simply be previews of new dance routines for her Vegas stage show.

“It's so hot in here… #PieceOfMe,” Britney wrote alongside one clip. “Just put your lips together and blow… #PieceOfMe,” another said on the right of the video.

With the show and setlist undergoing adjustments during the month and a half break, it seems more likely that the clips are sneak peeks of what might be different next time. Or, possibly, she could just be trying to break the internet a la Kim Kardashian.

Late last year, Britney revealed that she would be extending her Vegas residency until 2017. “I'm not ready to leave Vegas yet! And I just really really love this show and this city” she said at the time.
