LATEST: RODNEY 'DARKCHILD' JERKINS' is backing Britney Spears to overcome her personal problems and resurrect her stalled music career.
Acclaimed producer Jerkins has praised Spears' "professional" attitude after they recorded tracks for her new album.
The Toxic singer went into meltdown last year (07) after the breakdown of her marriage to ex-husband Kevin Federline - who she is currently fighting through the courts for custody of their children.
But Jerkins says Spears was fully focused and quickly completed several songs during a recent studio session.
He says, "She walked in at 8:30 and was out by 10:30."
Jerkins described Spears' new songs as "real aggressive and catchy."
