Israeli multi-platinum record producer and songwriter Johnny Goldstein has produced a new song by Britney Spears and Will.i.am, which is expected to be released on Tuesday.
“Working with two living legends is the biggest honor ever. I can’t wait,” the 32-year-old from Motza Illit told Ynet News about the highly anticipated single, called “Mind Your Business.”
Word about the two artists reuniting for the single has been spreading on social media, with Will.i.am posting a preview of the new song to his Twitter account. The two performers last collaborated on a song for the first time 10 years ago with the hit “Shout and Scream.”
“Will and I have been working together for the past four years and love it,” Goldstein told Ynet. ” Our collaboration is working really well. He is one of the people closest to me and a man I appreciate. He is also my friend and mentor and it is fun to create music together,” he added.
Spears last performed in Israel in 2017. Her first concert in the Jewish state drew 55,000 to Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park.
Will.i.am performed in Jerusalem in 2021, rejecting calls to boycott the country. The rapper said that his close ties with Israelis led him to oppose the boycott.
“Do I turn my back on people that live here because of politics? No, that’s not the way we were built,” he said at the time.
Last month, it was announced that five-time Grammy-award-winning American pop singer Christina Aguilera will perform in Israel for the first time this summer. She is scheduled to take the stage on Aug. 10 at Live Park in Rishon Lezion.
