Beyonce, Britney Serve Up First Singles From 'Goldmember'

Leave it to Austin Powers to have two leading ladies, and two fine ones at that. Britney Spears and Beyoncé Knowles will release the leadoff singles from the Austin Powers in Goldmember soundtrack, with Knowles’ “Work It Out” dropping shortly before Spears’ “Boys,” which was remixed by Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes, who produced the original version.

Knowles’ up-tempo “Work It Out,” which was also produced by the Neptunes, will premiere Thursday (May 23) on AOL.com. The Destiny’s Child singer will shoot a video for the song in New York in early June.

“Work It Out” will also be the first single from Knowles’ solo album, Dangerously in Love, due in October, according to her manager and father, Mathew Knowles.

Spears filmed a video for “Boys,” which appears in its original form on her Britney (2001) album, last week with “Goldmember” star Mike Myers.

Knowles, who plays Myers’ love interest in the latest “Austin Powers” flick, has another song on the soundtrack, “Hey, Goldmember,” which was written by Myers and samples K.C. and the Sunshine Band’s 1976 disco hit “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty”.

The track list for the rest of the soundtrack is not yet available, according to a spokesperson for the project.

Destiny’s Child are nominated for Best Group at the second annual BET Awards, which will broadcast live from Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre on June 25.
