  1. I see many of u insult glory ( @SUCCESSICA IS A QUEEN) or question whether it deserves to be in her holy trinity, or say it isn’t her baby and is in fact Bazuuka Jolie part 2 ( @PokemonSpears) but I have something to SAY!!!!!!!! so let’s discount her entire discography for a second and just look at the music she released in the 2010s: Femme Fatale (Will.I.am thinks he executively produced this album), Balsamic Jerusha, or Glory? i personally think her best album from the 2010s is glory. I don’t love femme fatale but tbh…. The singles were catchy too. wooh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhh
  2. I just read "Broccoli Juice" in another thread and I died I also once read "Brenda Joanne" I need to read them all.
  3. I don't know if this is already known but i'm still making a topic about it. According to BMI, the singer Alanis Morissette recorded a song titled "Lover Boy", written by Myah Marie, Paul Geissinger, Jonathan Asher and Guy Sigsworth. Some months ago, Myah started selling a demo of a song called "Lover Boy" produced by Sigsworth on her Patreon. She claims the demo was sent to Britney Spears (team) during the sessions of her album "Britney Jean", but it was either rejected or "recorded" but did not made into the final tracklist. It seems that the song was later sold to Morissette, which recorded it but it still remains unreleased for now. Opinions about this?
  4. A trustable source has revealed that the Tik Tik Boom demo did not include GRL's vocals after all. The vocals were done by Onique "Sparrow" Williams, which is one of the writers of the track. This could lead up to think that the song was actually not meant for GRL, but that has not been confirmed. This YouTube video is only for reference. The info comes from 2 different guys who collect reference demo tracks and are very active on Genius and Soundcloud.
  5. Well, this is the whole story: Somebody (this individual claimed to be an RCA's A&R at the time) sent me here back in 2014 via PM this e-mail apparently sent to the authors of the track aswell by RCA when the ******* demo leaked. Don't remeber if this was posted but i'm going to share it anyway -> Y'all are free to believe if that content is actually legit or not, because i don't know either. I was simply checking my old pics inside my notebook when this screenshot popped up. Track:
  6. Here’s a snippet of her vocals on Body Ache It’s the second verse. Myah Marie confirmed in a podcast that Britney both recorded and performed it on the song. She has told other fans and independent artists that she ended up dubbing most of the song because Britney was unable to spend much time in the studio because of the Vegas residency. Myah said that the producers blended Britney’s vocals with hers in the final song. Although, it’s clear that Myah’s voice is more prominent. I hope this settles the debate. Fans have insisted for years that Britney had nothing to do with Body Ache and that it was a last minute filler song. The fact that she actually did spend time recording it settles it!
  7. I know what you're thinking right now; another Myah Marie thread. But seeing some of the posts over the years, I've seen that there's a lot of confusion about the BJ-Myah Marie situation, even 4 years after the release of the album. Due to this I decided to open this thread, where everyone could share his opinions on where Britney/Myah sings leads on the album. Perfect timing after the Britney Jean's Top 5 game. This may also avoid thousands of topics about the subject being opened every weeks This is NOT a hate thread: I actually like some of the songs of the album. Also NO PROOF IS NEEDED, THIS IS ALL BASED ON SPECULATIONS. However, counter a debated argument with audio or stem info is better than "NO IT's BRITNEY/NO IT's MYAH". Still, there's no need to fight with each other, again this is all meant to share opinions and, eventually, find the truth. Here's my opinion on this. I'm pretty sure of my answers (but if you don't agree with them feel free to tell me) with the exception of Til It's Gone, Hold On Tight and Now That I Found You. In blue, where Britney sings, in yellow where Myah sings. Now let's the discussion begin!!
  8. I'm looking for PROOF of this conspiracy theory that Myah Marie sang most/all of the vocals on Britney Jean. As in, actual factual evidence that this is supposedly the secret truth. Saying "I'm a fan, I know her voice" is not proof, it's opinion. Saying "Britney doesn't sound like that" or "The lyrics obviously aren't her style" is also not proof, it's more opinion. Please do not waste your time spamming this topic with your feelings and emotions and hunches. I want receipts, kiddos My opinion: I do NOT think that Myah Marie had as big a part in these vocals as most people say. When I hear Myah Marie's own songs and the demos that she makes for Britney, it's clear to me that their voices are similar but not identical. I'm not sure why everybody is so quick to completely forget power of electronic engineering of voices and pitch adjustment and all sorts of really nifty technology (e.g. Auto-Tune) used all over the music industry to intentionally modify the original vocals. Britney Jean was obviously heavily edited vocally and in its overall production. I don't find this as a reason to entertain this ridiculous theory that Myah Marie is the main vocalist here. But if your claims can be fact-checked, then let's hear them.
  9. On January 08, 2014, the 40th People's Choice Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Britney Spears was voted Favorite Pop Artist, beating Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake. There were two other categories that she didn't win though: Favorite Pop Artist - won Favorite Female Artist - lost to Demi Lovato Favorite Music Fan Following (Britney Army) - lost to Demi Lovato's Lovatics
  10. I listened to Britney Jeans like 6 or 7 times in 2020 (because I had to make a Britney game on another pop forum, where I pick each song from the 9 albums everyday that are similar and people rank them 1-9, let me know if you guys want that game here )... ...and you know what? Britney Jeans is so underrated and unfairly hated by the stanbase and other people. They didn't give the album a listen or enough listens to really get into the songs. Songs like Body Ache, Til It's Gone, Now That I Found You and Hold On Tight are bops that stick in your mind. #Justice4BritneyJean
  11. On December 10, 2013, Britney Spears released the Perfume music video to promote the second and last single off her, fan-favorite, eighth studio album Britney Jean. It was directed by Joseph Kahn who had previously worked on the Stronger, Toxic and Womanizer videos, and it was filmed from November 19 to 21 in the California desert and Lancaster. The video portrays Britney and her lover, played by model Alexander Kjellevik, doing several activities like taking a trip at night, walking on the street while the guy flips his middle fingers to the world, drinking a beer on the roof of a motel, bathing in a pool and at some point Britney makes a ring out of a crooked nail and gives it to him as a symbol of love. In 2013, in an interview for ET, she spoke very briefly about handling the situation of kissing a guy in a music video, while having a boyfriend in real life: "[...] we had a discussion about that, you know, it's like, it's really weird 'cause in Hollywood it's so acceptable to just like go and do a movie and make out with somebody and 'cause you're just, you know, flattered to be in a movie and stuff, but I think, you know, some people who are very old-fashioned kind of don't believe in that manner, so um, we're kind of like torn on the whole situation". Later in the video, we see Britney wearing lingerie, in front of the mirror of the bathroom, putting on her Fantasy perfume, when a message from Cindy, played by Alandrea Martin, pops up on the screen of an iPhone. Afterwards, we see the guy and Cindy meeting at a gas station, while Britney is watching them from the distance inside a truck. The guy and his new partner, repeat the same activities we see him doing with Britney at the beginning of the video, while Britney drives away and is later seen crying inside the room of a motel. At the end we see the guy looking at the window, holding the ring Britney gave him. Throughout the video, we see intercalated aerial shots of Britney singing the song while wearing lingerie and her lover's shirt, lying in a mattress, with her man sleeping besides her. Several teasers were released previous to the premiere of the video. Britney shared on Facebook: "We've set a date! Perfume vid will premiere Tuesday on VEVO. Had to dig deep and really play with some acting chops for this one!" After being uploaded to her VEVO account in December 10, the video received positive reviews from critics, but not so much from the fans. The concept and storyline of the video seemed confusing and dull despite the very theatrical overall vibe of the clip. The amount of views it received was very overwhelming, paling in comparison to the massive hit its predecessor Work ***** was. To this day, seven years later, it's still yet to hit the 40M mark. However it did pretty well on the VH1 Top 20 in Latin America, occupying the top position for several weeks. The original concept On December 05, Joseph Kahn, the director of the video tweeted "Sigh I love my original edit no one will ever see. I'm gonna go cry in the arms of a Senegalese hooker". Two days later, he continued: "Internet calm down. I never said I didn't like the #Perfume video. I said I preferred my very different cut but their cut is fine. Jeez. Artists have the right to release their videos the way they want. I'm just a work for hire. It's their money & their career. No worries". Then on December 10 he added: "Wish they'd release the director's cut of #perfume. Britney's performance is unbelievable. A tur artist in it. Game changer. Official cut is a good video as you'll soon see. But it's a true loss not to see what she really did. It's incredible. Beyond other artists. Maybe if your voice is loud enough they'll release it. But other than that, I just needed to tell the truth. Something amazing is waiting". "The DC is a minute longer and there's a very shocking ending. But not what you think. I call it BREAKING BADNEY." In January 2014, Joseph was asked about it in an interview for Videostatic (who had also seen the original video): In July 2014, a person that claimed to be friends with someone working for a production company in Los Angeles leaked through a Facebook group what was supposed to be the original treatment of the video: Joseph Kahn confirmed these claims to be somewhat true, explaining some things were actually changed prior to the filming of the video He also clarified that things like Cindy's phone call were added after he was asked to change the storyline In 2015, in an interview for BreatheHeavy, he talked about Britney and the Perfume video: Tbh, the comments section of the video is mostly positive, it seems that just not a lot of people know about it, or those that do, didn't care to go back and re-watch it after they did it the first time. Footage of the original Make Me... video, which was also scrapped in 2016, ultimately leaked and to me that seemed even more impossible to happen compared to the original Perfume concept, so who knows if the Director's Cut will ever see the light.
  12. On November 25, 2013, Britney Spears released her eighth studio album Britney Jean. Or not exactly, but it was actually put out for streaming for free through the iTunes store and iTunes radio. The official release would come on November 29 in Australia and some European countries, and on December 03 in the United States. Executive produced by will.i.am, with whom she had already collaborated in 2011 on Big Fat Bass, 2012 on Scream & Shout and early 2013 on the remix for the latter, the album features mostly pop and EDM sounds, with a mixture of up-tempo club bangers and ballads. Announced as her most personal album ever, the lyrics talk about a variety of topics, covering aspects of fame and its effects, in songs such as Work ***** and Alien, heartbreaks and breakups in Perfume or Til It's Gone and even touches more spiritual themes in songs such as Brightest Morning Star and Now That I Found You. The album features will.i.am himself on the track It Should Be Easy, rapper T. I. on Tik Tik Boom and her sister Jamie Lynn on Chillin' With You. The standard version of the album leaked online on November 20, days ahead of the planned release date. About the event Britney tweeted: "To those of you listening to the leaks... I hope you love... I made this album specifically for my diehard fans so I'm just hoping every song touches you because each one is a piece of me" The album debuted and peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200, with the lowest first-week sales out of all of her albums since ...Baby One More Time, 107K units. Which was still impressive considering the leak two weeks prior, the week of free streaming and the lack of promo. It went #1 in China and #2 in Venezuela though, reaching Top 15, Top 20 and Top 30 in the majority of the other countries it charted. No more singles were released besides the two that had already been put out before the album release: Work ***** and Perfume. On her documentary I Am Britney Jean, Alien was suggested to be released as a third single eventually, but this never happened. Audio clips for Now That I Found You and It Should Be Easy were uploaded to her Youtube channel in 2014, but nothing happened afterwards. In the following months, several songs of the album were sent to various radio stations across the US for testing purposes. Radio campaigns organized mostly by Exhalers were done in order to request such songs on each of the stations. It Should Be Easy was eventually sent to radio stations in Italy too. Though they weren't released for commercial purposes, official remixes for It Should Be Easy and Tik Tik Boom were issued in early 2014, but they were sent to nightclubs exclusively. Some fanmade CD's are still making the rounds on the internet. Where it all began As early as August 2012, while she was participating on The X Factor as a judge, anticipation for her eighth studio album started to show in the music scene, since this record would mark the end of her recording contract, which was owned by RCA after they absorbed Jive Records in 2011, the original label that had signed Britney Spears. People such as L. A. Reid, co-judge on the show, and Barry Weiss, the former head of Jive, showed interest in getting Britney to join their respective record labels after she was done with "B8". (She ultimately renewed her contract with RCA). In October, "Blackout" was trending on Twitter for the fifth anniversary of the album, to which Britney took notice and teased a follow up to the record with a tweet: "I heard Happy Birthday Blackout was trending earlier... thank u all for loving the album as much as I do. Blackout 2.0?" It ended up being a "Blackout 2.0" indeed, only in the sense that they both failed to hit the Top spot on the Billboard 200 chart, and they both lacked of promo performances or a corresponding tour as the other albums of hers did. Also because they're both fan favorites but anyways... It was earlier that October that she was seen on The X Factor with old collaborator Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins at the studio, while she was receiving a call from Simon. It was denied by her reps that they were working together on new music though, but in early 2013 it was confirmed that even though in early stages, she had started to work with "inspiring producers" like Hit-Boy (who remixed Scream & Shout). will.i.am was also confirmed to be part of the project. Another person denied by her reps was Elijah Blake, who had told MTV in December 2012 that he had spent some time at the studio with Britney: "I would say it's definitely the 'unexpected' Britney in so many ways, in that she's playing with new textures and stomping on new grounds and genres. From talking to her, she's definitely trying to push the envelope this time — and really talk from a more personal point of view, and with Rodney Jerkins by her side, I'm hella excited. You're talking about Darkchild, the guy who changes music over and over again and never runs out of ideas. This album is gonna be crazy!" At the set of the music video of Scream & Shout (Remix) Hit-Boy commented to MTV about working with Britney: He ultimately didn't appear on the album Other collaborators that didn't make the cut were Scoop DeVille and Wiz Khalifa. On her interview with Shape magazine, Britney commented “the record is definitely going to be more hip-hop than pop this time around.” Where it truly began In May 2013, will.i.am confirmed to be the executive producer of the record. In an interview for Billboard he explained a little bit about the process of recording he was having with Britney: According to Larry Rudolph, Britney told him about will.i.am “I want Will to be a central figure in the album; I don’t want to have hundreds of songs sent over.” will.i.am added "Sometimes I’d write songs; some of them came from other people. But Britney wrote a lot of the songs.” (Britney appears credited as co-writer on every single track on the album). "We need to talk about what she's excited about in life. I gotta talk about the things that hurt her. I gotta talk about the things that make her concerned — she's a mother," will.i.am said. "I gotta talk to her about all the things that her fans want to talk to her about. I gotta be the vehicle between her and her fans. We can't do another song about going on the dance floor. Really? Didn't we see a bunch of Britney doing that already? Don't we want to see something that comes from her heart?" Anthony Preston worked with him as associate executive producer. Later that month, Naughty Boy and William Orbit were also confirmed to be part of the record. Naughty Boy however, ended up not taking part in it, due to the tight schedule he had while promoting his own material. In July, Britney also confirmed to have created a song with Sia. She tweeted: "Had an AMAZING writing session today with the beautiful and talented Sia. We wrote such a special song together : ) " About working with Britney, Sia commented "Britney was extremely sweet, she came in with the title ‘Brightest Morning Star’ and told me that’s how Jesus found his way. She wanted to write a kind of gospel song that wasn’t ramming it down your throat." In August, Britney shared the recipe for Album #8: In September, the day of the Desert Performance announcement of her Vegas residency Britney: Piece of Me during Good Morning America, she revealed the still untitled album would be released on December 3. She also revealed there would be a song called Perfume. In October she traveled to the UK and did a bunch of interviews to promote the Vegas show, her single Work ***** and the upcoming album. She revealed the title of the record to Capital FM, Britney Jean At Ellen she explained it was the "term of endearment" her family would call her when "she was bad" Later that month she wrote her fans an open letter and revealed the artwork of the album. ( Standard cover / Deluxe cover / Arabia Saudi cover ) In November she confirmed the tracklist of the album after it had leaked online "Sneaky hackers always trying to ruin my surprises. Here is the TRUE #BritneyJeanTrackList" Before the album leaked in full, some of the tracks had leaked already, such as Passenger and an early demo of Alien. A demo of Tik Tik Boom performed by G.R.L. also hit the net. After it was available, it was very well received by fans, at least for Exhalers Sadly, those old threads are long gone now, but I remember clearly the countless threads done in order to support every song of the album: #TeamAlien #TeamBodyAche #TeamTilIt'sGone etc were the common topics you would see those days. Every song received the fan support to be released as the next single, except maybe Chillin' With You lol Later, the album would be surrounded by controversy, after the leaking of some audios of the recording sessions of Alien, where she sounded out of tune (which William Orbit explained to be just warming up exercises that weren't supposed to be released to the public) and the allegations of Exhale's favorite backup singer Myah Marie to be lead singer on the album instead of Britney. Myah Marie has denied the claims more times than the amount of singles she's ever released: “I am so grateful for the opportunity to provide background vocals for Britney Spears on a small number of her most recent works, I most certainly cannot take credit for her tremendous talent as a singer. She is a veritable ‘living legend’ with a longstanding reputation for excellence in all aspects of her artistry.” A, now iconic, glitch that can be heard in the final version of Alien was also criticized by fans, with William Orbit blaming it on will.i.am's production. "One day the story will.be.told But right now, the future is far too bright to look back". The album received mixed reviews because of how impersonal it sounded to some after the numerous occasions it was stated this would be her most personal album ever. Its sound was also criticized for being a bit dated. To this day, though the album hasn't managed to sell lots of copies around the world, it somehow is the only album of Britney that keeps charting on iTunes on over 15 countries simultaneously in a consistent fashion, 7 years after its release. Be free to share your memories and thoughts on the album, but keep your comments nice or else I'll have to start banning some trolls
  13. NOTE: I originally made this thread on GagaDaily in April. I recently thought that since I want to be more active here too, it would be nice to post this here. So a lot of us may know about this tweet: Britney Spears began the recording sessions for Britney Jean in December of 2012, though unfortunately like with Femme Fatale and Circus (to a degree) she did not get the concept that she wanted. In May of 2013 will.i.am was made executive producer, changing everything. In this thread I will try my best to give a taste for what Britney herself wanted before her label stepped in. Note: These were intended for Britney; just because she wasn't singing does not mean that they were not intended for her. Here are some of the songs.: "Spell" "Ten Seconds" "No Title" (Most likely not the actual title, but I am unsure. If it is not the actual title, then it is most likely called "Feeling so Low" or "Never Need to Tell You.) "*******" "Feel Me Up" (Since April I have become skeptical about whether this song was intended for Britney Jean or not.) "Lips" "Exhale" (I am about 90% sure this was for the original concept, but there is also a possibility that it may have not been. -- Since April, I have realized that this song could have a double meaning about both her relationship with Jason Trawick, and her conservatorship.) "Old City of Mine" This is a concept beat by Danja for the original concept (There is said to be another one on VK.**): "Zombie" (Cover) Now it is important to remember that few songs from the original concept have leaked, so this is most likely not a full list. It really is a shame that she did not get to go along with the original concept; it potentially could have been among my top albums from her. -- I should also mention that I genuinely think that this album could have been a Grammy front runner in its original form. Discuss. ---- Some things: *If anyone could provide me with info on the songs "Tell it like it is", the second Danja Concept beat, a concept beat titled "Diplo", and a song known as Never Lie, then that would be great.
  14. Okay... YouTube user B W says they have been talking to Myah Marie on SoundBetter (where she can be hired) and she revealed to them exactly what happened. They told me (public posts): "@RockVeteran I was talking to her on soundbetter about it" Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbOgCia5d4&lc=UgxBaPBV0mn0GgUo5dd4AaABAg.90WKE05_lFw9GL8rE64kf_ "@RockVeteran Basically this: That she went in to do backgrounds for Britney Spears (she had done so in the past). She was then asked to do some extra doubles (which is basically overdubbing the lead vocals for extra punch and emphasis) since Britney was unavailable. During mixing Serban confused some of them for Britney making them louder than Brit's leads in places. He thought they were all Britney. That's basically it. She could have been making it up but I doubt that ahahaha." Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbOgCia5d4&lc=UgxBaPBV0mn0GgUo5dd4AaABAg.90WKE05_lFw9GNepcNRsTh Another YouTube user, benG, wrote this: "@MelonPeach I actually hired Myah to do some co writing/backgrounds on my upcoming debut. It came up in conversation and she said she did indeed dub most of Brit's vocals (and some other songs too), just because Britney couldn't get to the studio to do doubles and harmonies herself. I believe then in the mixing process, the mixer got confused and put the doubles up higher in the mix." Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbOgCia5d4&lc=Ugzx0jaUb1KXpn0gOG14AaABAg.90gI3Y6APiU9ACVCYoD2c1 Mmm... So we now have not one but two YouTube users reporting the same explanation from Myah Marie. (Maybe Myah Marie should make it an official public statement, then.) Serban Ghenea worked as a mixing engineer on Britney Jean. According to the booklet, Serban only mixed the following tracks: Alien, Passenger, Brightest Morning Star, Hold on Tight and Perfume (The Dreaming Mix). Serban's official website lists the same tracks except for the alternate mix of Perfume. If Myah Marie actually did reveal this, it then explains why does she sound louder in certain parts of some of those tracks, but it doesn't explain the allegations pertaining to Work *****, Body Ache, Til It's Gone and Chillin' With You. (As for Tik Tik Boom, according to this video, it's all Brit except for a few words and obviously the ad-libs at the end, but singing ad-libs does not quite qualify as dubbing.) What's strange, though, is that prior to working on Britney Jean, Serban Ghenea had worked on the Britney, In the Zone, Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, Circus and Femme Fatale albums, related singles, maxi-singles as well as 3 and Ooh La La. Having worked on so much of Brit's material, heard all those vocals of her a cappella, etc., he should have been able to tell her voice from Myah's... And why didn't they properly label the stems? Serban then worked on Pretty Girls and Glory.
  15. On November 4, 2013, Britney Spears released Perfume, the second and last single off her eighth studio album Britney Jean. The song was co-written by Britney, Sia and Christopher Braide and produced by Braide, will.i.am and Keith Harris. Her first ballad to be released as a single in many years, talks about Britney's fears in her relationship, that her partner may have another woman, so she sprays her perfume on him to "mark her territory". In July 2013, Britney revealed through Twitter that she had written a song with Sia. In September, during the Desert Performance announcement of her Vegas residency in Good Morning America, she revealed that Perfume was one of her favorite songs of her then upcoming album: "I love the 'Perfume' song. It's really beautiful. I like that song a lot. It's a ballad." After the release of Work *****, it was announced in October that Perfume would be the second single, after RCA Record's CEO Peter Edge said about the song that "she sings it beautifully and it has a real sincerity to it. And it's outstanding - I think people are not only gonna be surprised but also see another side of Britney." Larry Rudolph, Britney's manager, also commented on the song "a breakup song that's about wanting the next girl to smell your perfume on the guy afterwards. The lyric[s] [are] really unique and she sings the **** out of it." Though it was scheduled to be released on November 5, the song was made available through her Facebook on November 3, and it went on sale on November 4. Upon its release, Dr. Luke revealed he had produced a song for Britney Jean and when a fan asked him about Perfume, he revealed that there was another version of the song on the album, a bit rawer (which would later be revealed to be the Dreaming Mix). On November 19, a lyric video was uploaded to her Youtube channel. On November 21, Britney and will.i.am discussed the song with Ryan Seacrest at the iHeartRadio album preview: She also revealed the perfume she sprays is none of her several Fantasy spin-offs, but pikake The song had a poor chart performance, peaking at #76 on the BBH100, while hitting #22 on the Mainstream Top 40. It went #1 on Ukraine though, and #6 in South Korea. A shortened version of Perfume was performed at her Britney: Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas from the beginning until the 2016 revamp, when it was replaced by the Missy Elliott Medley. A music video for the song was released in December 10, but we'll cry talk about it later.
  16. On October 1, 2013, Britney Spears released the Work ***** music video. It was directed by Ben Mor, who also directed Scream & Shout's video. It premiered on the CW Network during the iHeart Radio festival, and later it was published on her YouTube account. The video was shot in Malibu, California from September 7 - 10. Rumors sparked about the costs of the production and editing amounted to $6.5M, making it the second most expensive music video ever, but Ben Mor refuted these claims. According to Britney, some scenes had to be edited out of the video because of their ****** tone. She said about the video: "A lot of *** goes into what I do. But sometimes I would like to bring it back to the old days when there was like one outfit through the whole video, and you're dancing the whole video, and there's like not that much *** stuff going on. It's about the dance and it's about being old school, it's like keeping it real and just making it about the dance. I'd love to do a video like that". In the UK , the music video was banned from airing on music video networks before 10 pm, for displaying "a number of risqué scenes featuring bondage gear and Spears whipping her dancers". The music video reached the 100M views on March 2014, becoming the 4th video on her channel to do so. It rapidly surpassed I Wanna Go video as the most watched on her channel, until it was eventually surpassed by ...Baby One More Time and Toxic a few years later.
  17. On September 17, 2013, Britney Spears released Work *****, the lead single off her eighth studio album Britney Jean. It was written by Britney, will.i.amwill, Otto "Knows" Jettman, Sebastian Ingrosso, Anthony Preston and Ruth-Anne Cunningham , while the production was handled by Ingrosso, Pasquale Verrigni, Jettman and will.i.am. The song peaked at #12 on the BBH100, while managing to land on Top 10 in 14 other countries outside the US. In the EDM track with mostly spoken lyrics, Britney exhorts "*****es" (a term of endearment) to work in order get things in life such as a hot body, a Bugatti or to party in France. Prior to its release, a countdown appeared on her website hinting at the release of new music. The site displayed the text "ALL EYES ON ME" leading fans to believe that that was the title of the new song. Rumors sparked about RuPaul being featured on the track. Work ***** originally premiered on radio on September 15, but the official release was on the 17, the same day she announced her first Las Vegas residency, Piece of Me on Good Morning America. The Desert Performance After months of speculation that she would be starting a residency show in Las Vegas, Britney Spears made the official announcement after a helicopter stunt broadcasted by the T.V. show Good Morning America. More than 1000 fans gathered in the desert to see her perform holding signs that together showed the picture of Britney Spears while she hovered in the helicopter. Live performances Work ***** did not receive any promo performances upon its release. Instead, she said on an interview she would be performing it on the music video ( ) which was released on October 1 (anniversary thread coming soon). Eventually, the song was finally performed for the first time as the opening number of her show Piece of Me. It stayed as such, until the end of the residency, as well as the respective tours in 2017, and 2018. It was also performed on her various festival appearances in 2016 as well as at the Billboard Music Awards medley from that year. The song was also performed along with Toxic during the **** Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2018 T.V. special. A clean version of the song titled Work Work was also released the same day.
  18. This version of Alien without Myah Marie or that awful glitch in it is so much better in my opinion. The link is here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvgOqOw75NsrggtJ3NPeFwWkseJT I created it myself, what do you think? Is it better?
  19. Hey Y’all! So after reading all of Brinty Joan’s nicknames on another thread, I decided to reimagine the Britney Jean Era. Some things may not be the most realistic, but I tried. *Imagine that the songs are completely Britney* The track list would be: 01 Alien 02 Strangest Love (Re-recorded and Remixed) 03 Zombie 04 Body Ache 05 Work B***h 06 Plastic 07 This Time 08 Passenger 09 Spell 10 Tik Tik Boom ft. Wiz Khalifa 11 Til It’s Gone 12 Don’t Cry 13 Brightest Morning Star 14 Hold On Tight 15 Perfume (The Dreaming Mix) Deluxe Track 16 It Should be Easy 17 Co cane (I’m not so sure about this track so I made it a bonus) 18 Old City of Mine I see the promotion being similar to the FF era. Singles: Work B***h would be released in March with a follow-up GMA performance. She promotes the song more at other shows, radio, etc. With no other large releases and riding S&S’s success, the song debuts at #1 on the bb100 for the first week, then stablizes at #4. Body Ache is released as the second single in May. She promotes the song more at other shows, radio, etc. Debuts at #9 In June, she has a desert performance (hehe) and performs Work, Body Ache, and the third single, Zombie. The video drops that night, along with the album. Album debuts at #2. Zombie debuts at #10. The Fourth single would be Alien, released in late July/ early August. Debuts at #18 For the fans, Perfume MV is released in November with the original concept. Debuts at #58 Britney Jean would get a small tour, focusing on places Britney loves to go. The tour would go from October 2013—February 2014. After the tour ends, Britney starts the promotion of her residency. What do you guys think?
  21. So, I was just listening to Britney's first self-titled album (the beautiful gem that it is) and when I got to "Bombastic Love" a connection was made in my mind. I feel like Britney's vocal delivery in this song is what Myah Maire tried to imitate while recording for Brit. I can really hear the inspiration on some of the Britney Jean tracks especially "Til It's Gone". Just a thought but what do y'all think, do you hear the specific "Bombastic Love" inspiration too or is it just me?
  22. I love this demo Do you guys think she ever recorded it?
  23. The Britney Jean vinyl is back in stock at Urban Outfitters! Only a few left!
