Less than a month from now the world will be graced with the newest single from Britney Spears featuring Iggy Azalea – “Pretty Girls”.

Spears and Azalea were spotted on the set of the song’s new music video in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Working totally 80’s fashions and hairstyles, the two mounted the back of a red convertible as they were driven down Sunset Blvd. singing the song’s lyrics.

This isn’t either of the musicians first time collaborating with another artist. It is, however, the first time Azalea has directed another artist’s video.

Azalea has collaborated with more than a hand full of musicians from Ariana Grande to T.I., so we counted down her top 5 collaborations based on YouTube.com views.

5. “Murder Business” ft. T.I.

Rapper T.I. has been credited with the discovery of Azalea since she first began to strut her way onto the music scene in 2011. The song itself is your run-of-the-mill rap song that has an infectious beat complimented by catchy lyrics. However, what sets this song apart is the video which pokes fun at child beauty pageants and shows such as “Toddlers and Tiaras”.

4. “Beg For It” ft. M0

Though the official video for this song was scrapped due to it “not needing to be done” according to Azalea, the song itself still saw much success on radio airways. The song peaked at No. 3 on the US Hot Dance Club Chart. Azalea brought aboard new artist M0 who delivers the chorus of this track.

3. “Black Widow” ft. Rita Ora

Azalea followed up the massive success of “Fancy” (see below) for another collaboration. This time with British pop singer Rita Ora. The video for the song pays homage to Quentin Tarantino’s film Kill Bill. The two women are dressed in outfits similar to that worn by Uma Thurman in the film and fight in a similar fashion. “Black Widow” peaked at No. 1 on multiple Billboard charts. The song is now one of Azalea’s signature tracks.

2. “Problem” ft Ariana Grande

Okay, so this song isn’t headlined by Azalea herself, but it is no denying that Ariana Grande helped usher Azalea into a  whole new level of super stardom. Her feature on this track helped the song hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and No. 1 on the US Rhythmic Chart. It is no doubt that without Azalea this track would not be the same.

1. “Fancy” ft. Charlie XCX

The breakout hit from Azalea has got to be without a doubt “Fancy”. Until releasing this song, Azalea struggled to find success with her previous singles. However, the song’s dancefloor beats and catchy lyrics paved the way for Azalea’s chart takeover. Not to mention she took advantage of the recent revival of 90’s fashion with the video that perfectly pays homage to the iconic 1995 film Clueless. The song hit No.1 on almost every US Billboard Chart and was named the 2014 “song of the summer” by Rolling Stone Magazine. It is Azalea’s defining song.
