Pop superstar Britney Spears is set to record a cover of troubled R+B singer Bobby Brown's 1988 hit MY PREROGATIVE.

The TOXIC singer has chosen to remake the song for the first single off her next project, a greatest-hits album called GREATEST HITS: MY PREROGATIVE, due on 16 November (04).

The cover, according to those who've heard it, is very different to the original.

There's speculation Spears chose the song as a statement against the reactions to some of her recent decisions, including her engagement to dancer KEVIN FEDERLINE.

The song, which will hit American radio on 14 September (04), will be one of two new tracks on the collection. A separate greatest-hits DVD will be released on the same day as the album.
