In a surprise collaboration between ’90s legends, Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys came together for “Matches,” a new track released on Friday, December 11.
The song, produced by Ian Kirkpatrick and Michael Wise, was released as part of the deluxe edition of Britney’s 2016 album Glory, which also includes her recent release, “Swimming In The Stars.”
The clubby, dance-pop tune is an undeniable banger – with Britney’s famous voice preceded by a smooth intro from the Backstreet Boys.
The song is signature Britney by the time it rolls around to the catchy earworm of a chorus, vaguely reminiscent of the pop star’s Circus era.
