Twenty-four hours after Britney Spears announced that the music video for “Work Bitch” will debut Oct. 1 on the CW television network, Billboard has exclusively obtained a never-before-seen still shot from the Ben Mor-directed clip.
In the photo, a dazzling looking Spears is caught in the headlights of a white luxury sports car. Earlier this week, the pop star teased 10 seconds “Work Bitch” on Instagram. The music video was shot in and around Los Angeles over three days and reunites the singer with director Mor, who also worked on will.i.am’s “Scream & Shout” (featuring Spears).
In related Spears news, Billboard was recently granted access to dancer auditions at CenterStaging in Burbank, Calif., for the pop singer’s Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood & Casino in late December. During our visit, Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph set the record straight on whether she’ll lip-synch her way through the two-year show, and also revealed new details about Spears’ eighth album, due Dec. 3. Billboard also received exclusive details from residency director Baz Halpin about what to expect from the production and visuals of “Britney Spears: Piece of Me.” Look for that story in the coming days on Billboard.com.
