What is the current trend of the music industry Britney needs to keep up with?

I know that the performing style is not similar to what Britney used to do in a sense that it is all about singing, nowadays either with a background band or just by oneself with some movement around the stage. Dancing and singing to big pop songs is not as important as it was in Britney's time.

It's also far more about writing about personal experiences and equality or feel good about oneself music than it is about every song being of a ****** nature.

Should she change her style or should she just improve on her dancing, try to perform like she used to, and just change her promotion style, such as paying attention to the streaming market and promoting it that way? Should she change her music to less electro pop and go more towards the electro hip hop/house style that is more trendy? Should she change her style of music completely by setting a new trend? 

Beyonce still performs the way she used to but has just grown with the times with her promotion AND music. Britney's problem was she did not grow with her music, which is why the general public cares less and is now looking at her style as dated(Even though it's a somewhat similar early 2000s performing style to Beyonce?) She also has the problem of not being as great of a dancer and STILL lip-syncing, which is just not acceptable to especially the younger crowd. 

Circus and Femme Fatale were great albums but she was kind of taking a little bit of a step backwards after Blackout. She got to do what she wanted with the latter but after her conservatorship, started to be the product of her team again. Now, she has Britney Jean, which was a disaster and Glory that is trend hopping. She is basically doing what she did with her first four albums instead of having her Lemonade moment. Blackout was the moment of her career that was like what Beyonce had with her self titled album. They are all different styles but those projects meant the same to them at that point in their careers.

What do you guys think she should do?

Honestly, this may be an unpopular opinion around here but I think she should just have fun with recording the next album. No focus on charts/success/trends etc. If she wanted to do a rockish type sound, I'm here for it. That 'urban' style, totally cool with me. 

I just feel feel like the best work happens when any individual acts on what they're feeling in the moment and puts heart and effort into their work. Trying to keep up with what is 'in' right now may make it seem forced, and as much as I love Glory, it really did sound like everything that was out at that point in time. 

That being said, I don't really care, my expectations for new music these days from any of the artists/bands I like are pretty low. I'm not huge on the current sound that's in right now, and kinda feel as if music in general has gotten progressively worse in the past 6 years or so. As long as we don't get another Britney Jean, I don't see myself being disappointed.

I don't care if she has major success. I just think that she needs to promote herself through current industry methods instead of going the route she did when albums were easier to sell.

What do you guys think she should do?

 
 

First of all, it's the sense of style.  I'm gonna be bashed for saying this but honestly, she needs to really change her look up. Don't get me wrong, I loved her low rider jeans and tank top days but recently, she's been looking frumpy in so many of her candids and her concert outfits lack a lot of style. Don't even get me started on how she does her own makeup. To those of you who think this is shallow, deal with it. People are judged by their looks and Britney made millions off of hers. She wasn't deemed the sexiest woman ever because she looked less than average. She's based her entire career off her looks, body, and **** laid-back style. 

Performance wise, If she wants to go for a much sexier route, she should hire someone like Robin Antin or her co-choreographer Mikey something. They KNOW how to create killer choreography and add a lot of sass and sensuality to it. The choreography for PCD's Buttons alone ***** on almost every choreo we see today. Her performance style nowadays is just unacceptable and downright embarrassing

As for the rest of the stuff like visuals, you guys are much better at coming up with this stuff.  

Oh and one more thing, she can lipsync if she wants (I don't like it but I can somewhat handle it) BUT PLEASE, STOP MAKING IT SO OBVIOUS!

Where was I wrong? Both dark albums about their lives when previously, they would have big top 40 hits and had albums that were more mainstream than quality. They both released albums that fit more of their identity(4 and In The Zone) but ultimately went more of the artistic route with their fifth albums. I never said they were the same projects but they did mean the same thing. Britney was setting trends and making songs that fit the dramatic state of her personal life, while Beyonce released her album as a surprise and the songs were all deep and meaningful.

They both are different type of artists, so obviously it sounds ridiculous when comparing them directly to each other or even comparing their careers to one another but it still makes sense in context when you see how connected they are, even if they live very different lives and have completely contrasting sounds in music.

Music style, Im down for whatever will make her proud so she likes promoting it. I just want choreo that actually matches the rhythm and feel of the music she puts out, and I'd like good pre-recorded vocals for performances. 

So instead of copying current artist's performing style with mostly singing, you prefer her to just work on the kind of performer she already is? It is true that the choreography is the only thing that truly needs work.

Blackout is nowhere near the level of BEYONCÉ. In 2007, people probably thought Blackout was what Britney did at a club or while driving her car. There was no impact outside of pop music followers. 

The only songs on Blackout remotely about Britney's life are Piece of Me and Why Should I Be Sad and the various interpretations of Gimme More, which I admit is a clever song that could fit the club or Britney's relationship with the press. The rest of the album is standard trashy *** pop. Artistically, it was a gigantic step backwards from In the Zone, essentially birthing the overly auto tuned and club crazed Britney that blossomed and peaked with Circus and Femme Fatale and had overstayed its welcome by the late and tired Britney Jean, the complete opposite of Beyoncé's progression as an artist.

whatever trend she starts or rides into will still flop if she doesn't promote. and by promotion, i mean decent ones where does her job as a popstar to:

1. sing

2. dance

nobody's going to give her a pass for another era where she will just lipsync and dance like a granny.

I disagree. The album may not be your favorite but Blackout had a concept that was executed well, just like ITZ. The record flows perfectly as a result, just like ITZ.

From the intro in Break the Ice, to the ex boyfriend kiss off Toy Soldier, to Heaven On Earth which essentially resembles Britney's hopeless romantic, to her sassy confidence in Hot As Ice, Blackout perfectly encompasses Britney at that point in her life. Just because it was slept on, doesn't make it any less well crafted.

There's really no point in trend hopping at all. She's a woman over 30 and the radio was never on her side sans Femme Fatale. They aren't going to play her stuff anyway so they need to focus on building her streaming up. I think she needs to stick with her performing style i.e. dancing, big choreography, etc and improve it to Britney/ITZ era. She was very authentic in those eras without trying and she needs to make good music. I don't care about the genre but whatever she does she needs to give it 1000 percent.
