Page Six was the first to report the collaboration.

The news comes after Spears and husband Sam Asghari enjoyed a rooftop hangout Saturday night with actor Taron Egerton, who played John, 75, in the 2019 musical biopic Rocketman.

“Coolest guy ever!!! Such a freaking fan… I was so stupid!!!” she captioned a since-deleted video of the visit.

The “Toxic” hitmaker missed out on John’s 30th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party back in March as her husband, 28, went in her place. “I wish she was [here]. She’s at home doing a couple of stuff… She’s traveling a lot,” Asghari told Extra.

The Goodbye Yellow Brick Road artist was also absent from his own event, sending his husband David Furnish and their sons with godmother Lady Gaga.

A source told PEOPLE that Spears is “talking a lot about her career” after her 13-year conservatorship was terminated in November, adding that she “loves creating music and wants to give her fans a new album. It seems like she is focusing on one thing at a time.”

Spears previously teased a “different version” of her 1998 breakout single “…Baby One More Time” in a video on Instagram, revealing that she’s been campaigning for years to re-record the track, which wasn’t possible during her conservatorship.

“I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time… may be too long,” she wrote in the caption.

After the ruling to end her conservatorship, the Glory artist’s attorney Mathew Rosengart called it a “monumental day“.
