Britney Spears Releases New Single Early After It Leaks

Image Courtesy Britney Spears via TwitterThe release date for Britney Spears' new single didn't work out as she'd hoped. After "Work Bitch" leaked online, Brit decided to officially debut the song on Sunday.

"Work Bitch" is a techno-pop tune co-written by her recent collaborator, will.i.am. In the song, Britney offers this advice: "You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti? You want a Maserati? You better work, bitch."

The single was originally set to be released Monday, and the fact that it leaked upset Britney. Hours before it was officially unveiled, she tweeted, "Woke up today and saw that a low quality version of Work Bitch had leaked :("

Britney's manager, Adam Leber, wrote on Twitter, "Disheartening that one bad apple had to spoil our release for the entire fan community but nonetheless, we hope you love."

Britney revealed the artwork for the single last week. It features her dressed as a showgirl, with a "Las Vegas" sign in the background -- a likely reference to her much-rumored, upcoming residency in Sin City.

Brit may spill the details on the residency when she appears on ABC's Good Morning America on Tuesday.
