Sharing a photograph of herself on Instagram on Tuesday, Billie wrote: “three days until my album ‘Happier Than Ever’ comes out and i want to cry thinking about it.”

Many fans were quick to express their own excitement for the new album, with over 3.3 million fans ‘liking’ her update, and with one thrilled fan commenting: “SO SO SO EXCITED WE WILL TAKE SUCH GOOD CARE OF IT.”

While another fan concluded that all of the singer’s fans would be shedding tears of joy, writing: “WE ALL GON CRY.”

The release of the album comes following a turbulent few weeks for the singer.

Billie has been battling an online backlash since the middle of June after old videos resurfaced showing her using a racial slur and mocking Asian accents.

Many fans turned on the star, and a campaign to have her ‘cancelled’ was swiftly under way – with her forthcoming second album already dismissed by many as her “flop era”.

Perfuse apologies were swiftly dispatched by Billie after her shameful videos went viral, with the star writing on Instagram: “I mouthed a word from a song that at the time I didn't know was a derogatory term used against members of the Asian community.

“I am appalled and embarrassed and want to barf that I ever mouthed along to that word.

"This song was the only time I’d ever heard that word as it was never used around me by anyone in my family.”

She added: “Regardless of my ignorance and age at the time, nothing excuses the fact is that it was hurtful. And for that I am sorry.”

Meanwhile her brother, and music co-writer, Finneas O'Connell, 23, hit out at a Twitter account that spins false quotes from the Bond theme writing singer.

One such quote claimed Billie laughed to a magazine: “When I got rich, I started balling my eyes out, I wanted to be poor so I can relate to most of my fans. I still want to be broke and poor, it looks really fun and cute.”

Fines blasted on Twitter: “Fake obviously. Honestly I just wish they’d label this account satire like the onion or something.”

He later tweeted: “Also the account BilliesUpdatess is posting relentless lies about billie so if you see that account, report and block Em.”
