On March 04, 2011, Till the World Ends was released as the second single off Britney Spears' album Femme Fatale. It was produced by Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Billboard and Emily Wright, and it had additional writing by Alexander Kronlund and Kesha. The electropop, dance, uptempo track talks about literally, dancing till the world ends and it's characterized by a chanting chorus that repeats several times throughout the song.


She officially premiered the track at On Air with Ryan Seacrest:


The apocalyptic track was acclaimed by the critics, with Rolling Stone naming it the third best song of the year. It sold 117k copies on its first week, debuting at #20 on the BBH100 and eventually peaking at #3. It hit the #1 spot on the US Dance Club Songs chart and it was Top 10 in almost every country it charted, including #1 in Russia, Poland, South Korea and Spain.

In 2015, it was voted the best song of the 2010's by Billboard readers.




In April, a few days before the release of its music video, a lyric video was uploaded to her YouTube channel:





She first performed the song on March 25 at Rain Nightclub, and it was later included on her sets for GMA and Jimmy Kimmel.


It was later included on her Femme Fatale Tour.


And it was also the closing song of Britney: Piece of Me for the entirety of its duration.





Till the World Ends received several remixes, the most notable, The Femme Fatale Remix, was released in April and it featured Nicki Minaj and Kesha. Britney joined Nicki Minaj at the BBMA 2011 to perform a shortened version of the song. Nicki would later join Britney to perform her rap on the Femme Fatale Tour at selected dates.
