The collaboration, which has already stormed the charts in America, will now be available for download on our shores from 9th December.
Spears' publicist announced that "due to demand", a decision was made to put forward the release, with the song now listed on iTunes for pre-order.
Scream & Shout is currently No.1 on US iTunes, with the track already topping the charts in sixteen other countries since it was unleashed last week.
The video for the song premiered on The X Factor USA on 28th November.
Britney, who is a judge on the Fox talent show, previously said of the tune: "You just have to hear it - he's just like a radical genius scientist [in the studio]. Just to be able to do a song with him is really fun."
Promo director Ben Mor also recently told MTV News that it was an honour to work with the pop princess on Scream & Shout, stating: "I mean, she's kind of an enigma. Every generation has their pop queen/icon, and I think she is just that person.
"Needless to say, her track record speaks for itself: her albums, her music, her iconic past videos and all the stuff she's done. She's earned her stripes. You're dealing with an institution."
