The 42-year-old Princess of Pop got nostalgic as she gave a nod to the late King of Pop by bringing back her viral IG dance routines.

On Friday, Britney dropped a clip where she performed choreography to the 1995 hit Scream by Michael and his sister, Janet.


"Today dancing to Scream !!!" she captioned the video, which showed the singer twirling about in a neon green bikini bottom, a black crop top, and matching black leather knee-high boots.

Shortly after, the Toxic artist posted a side-by-side photo from her rehearsal and performance with the Beat It singer at his 30th-anniversary celebration.
