Britney Spears strips down to nothing but a towel before strutting her stuff in a red ʙικιɴι as she celebrates release of her new single with Elton John

She recently deleted her Instagram account.

But that hasn’t stopped Britney Spears from interacting with her millions of fans, as evidenced by new content shared to Twitter.

On Friday the 40-year-old pop star tweeted out an image of herself posing with nothing but a white towel placed on her lap.

Hours later she reemerged in a video as she donned a red ʙικιɴι.

In the pH๏τo, Britney’s famous blonde hair fell around her visage and over her chest with face-framing bangs.

Light poured in from a large window behind her as she sat perched on the ledge of a bathtub.

She held her hands over her chest, protecting her modesty as one leg extended out of the frame and she bent the other inward.

Friday evening she tweeted, ‘BEST DAY EVER !!!’ with a rose emoji as she shared a twelve-second clip soundtracked by Jay-Z’s 2000 hit I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).

Britney began the recording wearing a long white coat with black trim along the collar.

A moment later she removed it, revealing her two-piece string swimsuit, which bared her midriff.

She had a beaded necklace with a round, green stone pendant layered around her neck and multiple bracelets on her wrist.

The corners of the Louisiana-born entertainer’s eyes were rimmed with black liner as she stared into the camera.

The Twitter posts follow the release of the singer’s new song with Sir Elton John, a remix of his classic tune Tiny Dancer.

Spears exclaimed, ‘HOLY S***!’ on Twitter after her first single in six years reportedly topped the iTunes charts in 40 countries.

The single is dubbed Hold Me Closer, and mixes his 1971 hit with his 1992 song The One, as well as parts of Don’t Go Breaking My Heart from 1976.

After it dropped, Britney tweeted a video filmed in the bath in which she playfully put on an English accent and said: ‘Hello, Sir Elton John, we are like number one in 40 countries.’

She then lapsed back into her natural American accent to excitedly yell: ‘HOLY S***!’ before reverting to the English accent to say with a wink: ‘I’m in the tub right now, and I’m about to go have the best day ever and I hope you’re well.’

Her video came as the New York Daily News reported Hold Me Closer had rocketed to number one on iTunes in 40 countries within hours of its release.

She also filmed herself smiling and waving while strutting through a hallway as the duo’s new track played.

Britney was decked out in a coat, white-rimmed aviator sunglᴀsses and a summery straw hat.

‘Keep smiling folks … KEEP SMILING!!!’ the Womanizer singer wrote above the video, adding: ‘Psss I LOVE YOU ALL !!!’

Sir Elton, 75, said he hoped the single would be a hit, in order to restore Britney’s confidence and inspire her to keep making music.

Ahead of the single being released at midnight on Friday, the British musician admitted he could relate to Britney being ‘broken,’ and revealed that it had been a struggle to work together as she had understandably been ‘fearful’ to return to music following the end of her 13-year conservatorship at the hands of her father Jamie.

He told The Guardian: ‘It’s hard when you’re young. Britney was broken. I was broken when I got sober. I was in a terrible place. Now, I’ve got the experience to be able to advise people and help them because I don’t want to see any artists in a dark place.’
