Britney Spears was forced to bump up the radio release of her comeback single on Sunday after a low-quality version of the song leaked online.

The “Toxic” hitmaker had been gearing up to premiere “Work B****,” a collaboration with will.i.am and songwriter Otto Knows, on Monday evening, but her plans were ruined after discovering it had already surfaced on the Internet over the weekend.

In a Twitter.com post on Sunday, Spears wrote, “Woke up today and saw that a low quality version of Work B**** had leaked … iamwill OttoKnows and I worked SOOO hard on this song! Can’t wait for you all to hear it like you’re supposed to…”

As a result of the leak, Spears’ track made its big radio debut on Sunday afternoon.

“Work B****” had already hit headlines before it was even released – Swedish DJ Sebastian Ingrosso was forced to speak out to distance himself from the tune after he was listed as a songwriter on a lyric sheet Spears posted online on Wednesday.

Ingrosso insisted it was not his work on the track – he had simply passed along a song, created by his artist Knows, to the Black Eyed Peas frontman to use for Spears’ new project.
