They have recorded a remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ as a full duet — and it is incredible. Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills last week with Elton for the super-secret recording session overseen by uber-producer Andrew Watt.”

Sir Elton is no stranger to collaborating with younger pop stars. He released a holiday track with Ed Sheeran last December. Two months prior, he released his album The Lockdown Sessions which featured Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Charlie Puth, and more.
