Sebastian IngrossoFormer Swedish House Mafia star Sebastian Ingrosso has distanced himself from Britney Spears' latest song after she named him as a songwriter.

On Wednesday, the 31 year-old singer took to her Twitter page to drum up excitement for her next single Work Bitch by posting a photo of her lyric sheet, along with a list of the songwriters, including rapper and Spears herself.

Ingrosso's name was included in the shot but the Swedish DJ insists he wasn't involved in making the track, telling, "I don't really know why they put my name in there. It's a really good song and I'm looking forward to what's going to happen with it. But I can't really take credit for it."

The producer has put the mix-up down to an error, admitting he gave the Black Eyed Peas frontman a beat that was actually created by an artist he manages called Otto Knows.

He explains, "I'm good friends with He called me up and said, 'I'm doing Britney's new album, do you have any beats for me to write on?' We have a good connection. You never know. I don't care if it's Britney Spears or if it's Led Zeppelin. I love music."

Spears will release the track on Tuesday.
