Britney Spears has been dubbed the most focused and disciplined artist in the music industry by will.i.am.
will.i.am executive produced Britney's eighth studio album Britney Jean which is due out next week.
Speaking to Popjustice will.i.am sang her praises, "I don't want to name artists but Britney is the most focused and disciplined of all the artists in the industry. Britney's a pro.
"Her time is valuable: she has kids. And a lot of the time with an artist they'll go into the studio, they'll sit around, they're watching TV, they order some food, they're giggling and joking, they're searching and listening to other people's songs, they finally get to work then they take a break, they order some food, their friends come… And that happens for four or five months, sometimes eight months.
"Britney's like, 'I'm coming in from 2pm until 6pm'. She'll arrive at 1.30, and from 2 to 6 she'll be like BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM. BAM BAM BAM BAM. BAM BAM. I've never seen anything like that. Her work ethic is pretty admirable."
