The grungy pop star, who wrote Icona Pop's smash hit 'I Love It' and who released her own debut album earlier this year - 'True Romance' - has sent a song to be considered for Britney's new album, which will be the eighth in her career.

The singer said that she was honoured to be asked to contribute to the LP but 'freaked out' moments before the writing session.
