Billboard Bits: Britney Spears Has In-Home Club, Neutral Milk Hotel Boxset On the Way

Britney Spears and Rihanna have teamed up for a raunchy remix of the latter's hit single, "S&M." The collaboration, which premiered today on New York radio station Z100, features the pop divas trading lines from the song's original chorus and an entirely new second verse by Spears.

"If I'm bad, tie me down," Spears coos, taking a cue from Rihanna's just-as-provocative original version of the song. "Shut me up, gag and bound me/'Cause the pain is my pleasure/Nothing comes better."


The "S&M" remix comes at a time when both Spears and Rihanna are riding high: Spears' new album"Femme Fatale" just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, while Rihanna's original "S&M," which is perched at No. 2 on the Hot 100, just became her record eighth chart-topper on Pop Songs.
