The new Elton John, Britany Spears collaboration comes out Friday! I predict another hit for both artists!

Elton‘s on holiday right now in the South of France, tooling around on his yacht with his family.

They must have docked the boat and gone into town for some sightseeing and snacks because here’s Elton with a couple of dj’s entertaining the other diners.

While it’s really cool to get a preview of the new Elton John, Britany Spears collaboration, for me, the best part is seeing the patrons on their feet, cell phones in hand, smiling and bouncing to the music. Everyone looks so jubilant!

And why wouldn’t they be? They’re in a French restaurant on the French Riviera and, oh look! There’s Elton John singing karaoke to his new song next to the dj five feet away!

Oh happy day!

After you watch the video, make sure you scroll down and get a look at the cover art for the new single. It’s a picture of both Elton and Britany when they were kids, before all the glamour and glitz and yachts and unconscionable conservatorships.

I  hope this is a huge, worldwide hit song and Britany makes back some of the money her lowlife father and the deadbeat father of her boys robbed her of.

Elton, he’ll be back on the road soon for the last leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
