Charli XCX has finally shed some light on a persistent pop music rumour. During a May 6 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the 31-year-old singer confirmed that she was asked to write songs for a high-profile artist – Britney Spears.

After a fan questioned the validity of the Spears collaboration rumour, Charli hesitated before sharing her side of the story. "Um, yes, but it leaked to the press. Britney then did this post where she was like 'I don't have random people write for me.' And I was like, 'Oh, OK. Go off,'" she quipped.

Charli clarified that while she wasn't sure if Spears herself was involved, her team might have jumped the gun. Although songs were written, Spears never recorded them.

Despite the missed collaboration, Charli is still a huge Spears fan and hopes the pop icon will one day record one of her songs. It would be a "dream come true."

The singer also discussed her upcoming album Brat and her successful 2023 single "Speed Drive" from the Barbie movie soundtrack.
