CIRCUS - The way it should've been!


Recommended Posts

Whenever I stream Circus on Spotify (which you flops hoes should be doing with Britney's music in todays world) I find myself pressing skip to the later half of the album. It just doesn't have the same impact on me anymore. Anyway, I noticed the bonus tracks are a lot stronger than the material that was released on the album.

First off songs that should've been axed (or just released as bonus tracks):

  • MMM Papi
  • Mannequin
  • Lace & Leather
  • My Baby
  • Radar (seriously what even) 
Spoiler

I would include If U Seek Amy, but I can already see you guys coming for me so I'd rather not :weirdmeout:

I would replace them with:

  • Quicksand
  • Trouble
  • Phonography
  • Amnesia - kind of weak but it's better than Rock Me In and RockBoy

Also wasn't Everyday an unreleased track from Circus, that should've been the Bonus Track at the end :mhm:

they had to if they wanted to release it as a single if I'm correct.. they didn't have to release it as a single.. :ponderney: 

Radar was due to be released as a single from Blackout around the time they started to rebuild her image, however as the Blackout album had negative connotations with her breakdown, they decided to release a fresh song from her upcoming 'comeback' album instead. However, by this point Radar was already promised as a single and physical copies of it were already being produced and distributed (even a MV concept was planned) so to fulfil their contractual obligations they included it on Circus as well to be later be released as its fourth single.

I wish they still went with its original MV idea though, she was gonna be chasing guys round London or something that were on her 'radar' - sounded so cool :tifftear:

They did have a contract with Bloodshy that stipulated if they worked together, the song must be a single. Because they moved from Blackout to Circus for obvious reasons, they had no choice to release Radar as a single, as the contract stipulated.

I agree that a lot of the bonus songs are great but I LOVE Mmm Papi, Mannequin, and Lace And Leather... so...

NO :jumpney:

pretty sure they put Radar on it because they had to not because they wanted to.

Yep they signed a contract to release it as a single. But it’s always gonna be a Blackout track to me.

I would get rid of Mmm Papi and My Baby, replace them with Phonography and either Rock Me In or Trouble.

I agree the original video sounded much better. The released video didn’t fit the song, I always thought it should have been the video for Unusual You.
