Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys were elated to share their new collab, ‘Matches’. It became available globally on 10th December.
Two 1990’s powerhouses got together for their latest track which can be found on the deluxe version of Britney’s 2016 album, Glory.
She dropped another surprise track ‘Swimming in the Stars’ before this collab. The track was actually recorded in 2016 while Britney was prepping her Glory album, and so fans were delighted to receive this unreleased track as a gift from Britney on her 39th birthday on Dec. 2
