  1. On May 10, 2004, Britney Spears released Everytime, the third single off her In the Zone album. Recorded in November 2002, the ballad was co-written between Britney and former backup singer Annet Stamatelatos (now known as Annet Artani). Britney composed the melody, and the production was in charge of Guy Sigsworth. Everytime went #1 in the UK, Australia, Hungary, Scotland and Ireland, and was Top 5 in almost every other country it charted, including the US Mainstream Top 40, though it only peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song evokes a feeling of sadness through its lyrics, with which Britney is asking her lover to forgive her "... my weakness caused you pain and this song's my sorry". She also describes the suffering she goes through because of his absence with lyrics such as "I make-believe that you are here; it's the only way that I see clear". According to Annet in an interview for Muumuse, Britney and her forged a friendship after the Dream Within a Dream Tour ended in the summer of 2002. When she broke up with her boyfriend, she was supported by Britney, who had also gone through a very public breakup a few months prior. "Basically, we commiserated because she, at that time, had broken up with Justin [Timberlake]. Maybe like nine months before, but of course it was really fresh in the media. I was just breaking up with this guy, so we kind of like—I think we kind of needed each other." In October of that year, Britney Spears appeared at the Versace Fashion Show during the Milan Fashion Week. The house Annet mentions is Donatella Versace's, as Britney explained in this interview: Britney even mentions going back to L.A. to "record a little bit" after the fashion week. In the Muumuse interview, Annet suggests that the song was in a way a response to Justin Timberlake's infamous single Cry Me a River: However, in an interview for MTV, Britney denied these rumors, which existed even before the song came out, saying "You know, it's funny," she said. "I read that I wrote this song and I wrote these lyrics, and that's not my style. I would never do that." "Sometimes when I get kind of bored, I come behind here and play the piano. There's a piano in the hotel room, so I was really excited. I don't know what 'C' is or, like, all that, but I do my own thing." In an interview for Hip Online, when describing her involvement in the lyrical content of the album, Britney talked about Everytime and Guy Sigsworth as a producer: Britney performed the song several times on television shows, as well as various of her tours. The very first time, was at Saturday Night Live on October 18, 2003. She's performed it at her Onyx Hotel Tour, the Circus Starring Britney Spears and Britney: Piece of Me. Several remixes were released for the song, including the Hi-Bias Remix, the Valentin Remix, the Above & Beyond's Mix, among others. In 2018, Britney Spears received the Gold and Platinum songwriting credits award for Work *****, Everytime and Make Me... Last month, we celebrated the anniversary of the David LaChapelle-directed music video for the song, which was released on April 12:
  2. On April 12, 2004, the Everytime music video premiered on TRL. It was the third video to promote In the Zone, Britney's fourth studio album. It was filmed on March 13 and 14 in Los Angeles and it was directed by David LaChapelle, who had photographed her in 1999 for the Rolling Stone magazine. The video features Britney and her love interest (Stephen Dorff) arriving at a hotel in Las Vegas inside a limousine. They seem distant, and when Britney tries to touch him while he talks on the phone, he pushes her away . They're received by a crowd of paparazzi and fans, making them struggle to walk by, but they eventually make their way, entering from the backdoor of the hotel, after Britney's boyfriend had thrown some magazines to the paps. They keep arguing as they reach their room, where Britney gets in the bathtub while her boyfriend stays in the couch. As she touches her head while lying in the bathtub, she notices that there's blood from a wound she got at the beginning of the video, when a paparazzo accidentally hit her with a camera. She then loses consciousness and drowns. From here we see intercut scenes of Britney running in a hospital hallway and her boyfriend rescuing her from the bathtub. We see her being carried into an ambulance surrounded by the paparazzi, and the doctors trying to resuscitate her at the hospital. Her ghost or spirit is seeing herself in the bed, and when she walks to the next room, she sees a baby being born. At the end we see her rising from under the water in the bathtub and smiling, suggesting it was all a dream or fantasy. Before the video was shot, MTV news obtained a treatment of the video, which involved a cup of wine and a bottle of pills in the bathtub scene. She was supposed to die and be seen in the end walking past the paparazzi, who wouldn't notice her ghost. However, it received a lot of criticism from the public who accused Britney of "glorifying suicide". Britney, through her record label, decided against this treatment, clarifying it was not meant to be a suicide, but an accidental death, and that the treatment would be revised. The day of the premiere, Britney called the show and explained the concept of reincarnation of the video. She added "It's more like a movie. It's different than anything I've ever done. It's dark, and it shows me in a different light. Of course, I'm going to go back and do dance videos, but I wanted to be inspired and challenged." The video went #1 a few times on TRL countdown, and in MTV Latin America, it landed at #37 in the yearly Top 100 of 2004. In 2018, it became Britney's 15th video to surpass 100M views on YouTube. In May, she appeared on UK's TRL, where she clarified again the video wasn't about suicide, but that even if it were, it should be taken in a positive light by the parents, in order to raise awareness since the suicide rates were at their highest. She also talked about David LaChapelle, and played Rock, paper, scissors against her past self. On her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, an alternative cut of the video was released, including some outtakes:
  3. Hey! I just released Everytime in 4K 60FPS, edited for copyright but mainly to make it like how Britney wanted first. This time, with its original 4:3 format after many requests! Hope you enjoy! #Remastered #Everytime #4K60FPS
  4. She hasnt shown off any of her piano skills since the ITZ/Onyx days.. do you think she still knows how to play & write? Its almost like at this point she’s literally just a manufactured robot. No ability to play instruments, all of her songs are either “co-written” or not written by her at all, and the OBVIOUS fact that she goes into the studio, records one or two takes of a verse and then leaves. I cant be the only one who has thought this! If she can/still does she should really showcase that! Bring back the ARTIST in her!
  5. I was in the car the other day listening to an old playlist when Perfume feat. Sia came on. My initial reaction was to skip the song, since I wasn't in the mood to hear a heavily edited 'ballad' with upbeat instrumentals, but I started listening to the lyrics and thought... 'you know what? There's actually something here.' Granted, when you listen to the radio version of Perfume and/or re-watch the angsty music video, the entire production just feels painfully commercial. But when you strip everything away and add a couple new instrumentals (which I took the liberty of doing because I had time today), Perfume is really beautiful...and sad. Honestly, if Britney had released this acoustic version and if her team had created a video that reflected the depth of the lyrics, I think we could've had another Everytime on our hands. Forgive my average video editing skills, but what are your thoughts?
