, the track, which Britney Spears and Will.i.am recorded three months ago, is from the Black Eyed Peas star's upcoming album Willpower, which has been pushed to an early 2013 release instead of the December 7 release due to the leaks. Check out the song after the jump!
"Well, that's done," Will.i.am, who also served as a guest mentor to Spears' Teens group on The X Factor season 2, told Billboard on the American Music Awards red carpet. "You can't undo it. It's out. It made it real." Will, however, is quick to acknowledge that "once things go to the editing and coloring, it's not in your control."
Britney Spears, meanwhile, is just relived that fans love her latest song.
"Can't say I'm thrilled our song leaked but...," she tweeted
. "I AM super excited that my fans seem to love it as much as @iamwill and I do. What do you guys think about #ScreamAndShout?"
The music video for "Scream and Shout" will also reportedly arrive on November 28 instead of the originally planned X Factor debut on Thanksgiving night.
