January 06 - Toxic Las Vegas

RCA Records and Warner Bros. released the never-before-released Jamieson Shaw Remix 'Toxic Las Vegas' by Britney Spears and Elvis Presley as part of the 88th Birthday celebrations. 

Three months ago Baz Luhrmann explained that he was working on releasing the fan-favorite ‘Toxic Las Vegas’ remix from his recent film 'ELVIS' which fuses Elvis Presley’s 'Viva Las Vegas' with Spears’ 2003 hit, 'Toxic'.

Luhrmann said, “There’s a lot of love, a lot of intense love for the Britney / Elvis track in the movie, and it’s my commitment to release the song”.

The remix appears in the scene depicting a montage of Presley’s Hollywood career throughout the Sixties and the introduction of the members of the Memphis Mafia.

Here is another fan-made mix (which is actually much better :-) as it stays closer to both originals), but you be the judge.
