Britney Spears is back in full force. Fans eagerly anticipate her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, and her latest single "Work B**ch" has already received over 28 million hits on YouTube in just two weeks. 

Yesterday she revealed that the title of her 8th studio album is..."Britney Jean." Now, right away you may think that there's an immediate connection to "Billie Jean," especially since Britney looked up to Michael Jackson, but in fact, Jean is her middle name.

In an interview on London's Capital FM yesterday, she explained, "It's a personal album, and all my family, they all call me Britney Jean, it's like my term of endearment, and I just wanted to share that with my fans." While her song "Work B**ch" might not necessarily seem a great fit for a more personal album, perhaps it doesn't reflect the majority of tracks featured.

When asked about possible collaborations on the album, Britney smiled and said, "You have to wait and see!"

The album will release on December 3rd, which is perfect timing for the start of Britney's Las Vegas residency which commences on December 27th. 

There is little else known about the album, except that will.i.am is the executive producer. Given their collaboration on "Scream and Shout," it'll be interesting to see how they come together to form Britney's full album.

For the full interview in which she teases information about the album, check out this clip from London's Capital FM:
