Britney Spears Reveals Art for New Single "3," Hitting Radio Tomorrow

September 28, 2009 4:32 PM ET

Britney Spears is giving fans an early look at the artwork for her new single, "3," on her official Website. The tune — which was produced by hitmaker Max Martin — premieres tomorrow morning on New York's Z100. The cover is pretty simple — and nothing like the covers RS contributors dreamed up when the singer put out Blackout a few years ago. Check out those options here.

Britney's wild ride: her ups and downs in photos.

As Rolling Stone reported, "3" will appear on a best-of collection called The Singles Collection on November 24th — just in time for the Christmas rush and a week before Spears' 28th birthday. The singer spent her last birthday making a grand comeback on Good Morning America, performing "Womanizer" and "Circus" at New York's Big Apple Circus the day Circus dropped.

Spears performed the last date of most recent U.S. Circus tour last night in Vegas and special guest Lance Bass hopped onstage and was serenaded during "Breathe on Me." Spears spread the word via tweet: "My good friend Lance surprised me on stage last night for Breathe On Me. It was soo funny! Good to see you Lance! -Brit"

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
