  1. While I love that song and the video. I just thought it didn't represent B3 at all. Aside from that song, every thing else on the album felt mostly wholesome. Her new image alienated half of her fans and hurt her pure album sales. What should've been the first single?
  2. On September 24, 2001, Britney Spears released I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney. Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes) wrote and produced the track. The song had already been performed live at the VMA on September 6 of that same year. Commercially, the song entered the Top 15 of almost every country it charted, but in the US, it only peaked at #27 on the BBH100. It is said that a radio boycott ensued Britney after she chose Concerts West to promote her tour, instead of Clear Channel Entertainment, which had promoted her previous tours up to this point, thus affecting the chart performance of all the singles from this era. The song was originally intended to be recorded by Janet Jackson. Its R&B sounds were like nothing she had done before in her first two albums, and it marked a departure from her signature bubblegum pop sound to something more mature. In fact, it was the only song of hers that has ever charted on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at #85. Music Video The same day the single was released, an accompanying music video premiered on MTV's Making the Video. It was directed by Francis Lawrence and it was filmed at the same studio, the same day that Shakira was shooting her video Whenever, Wherever, also directed by Lawrence. The steamy video shows Britney and her dancers, dancing until the point of dehydration in what seems to be an Asian bath house. It was nominated for three categories at the VMA's 2002 (but didn't win any) and it landed at the yearly Top 100 countdown made by MTV Latin America in 2001 at #38 (North), #12 (Southeast) and #9 (Southwest). Live performances Besides its debut at the VMA's 2001, the song was performed at many tv shows, as well as other awards shows in order to promote it. Its choreography, especially the dance break, became a signature of Britney's career, and the song has been performed at every tour of hers since the Dream Within a Dream Tour, including the promotional performances of subsequent eras like In the Zone in 2003, or the series of festivals she did in 2016 to promote Glory.
  3. On September 6, 2001, the MTV Video Music Awards aired live from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. Fatboy Slim was the biggest winner of the night with six moonmen, for the video Weapon of Choice, followed by NSYNC with 4 and the collaboration between Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mýa and Pink for Lady Marmalade with 2, including Video of the Year. It also featured memorials for Aaliyah and Joey Ramone. The show counted with performances by Jennifer Lopez, Linkin Park, Alicia Keys and NSYNC featuring MIchael Jackson among others, but the biggest event was Britney Spears' performance of I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney set to be released later that year. The performance had a jungle theme and she started it by standing inside a cage with a live tiger. Besides a heavy choreography that featured what would later become her signature dance breakdown, the performance included towards the end another live animal, an albino python (named Banana). The performance became an instant classic, and to this day is remembered as one of the best performances of the VMA's. That year, Britney was nominated for Best Pop Video (Stronger) but lost to NSYNC's Pop.
  4. On December 04, 2001, the Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Destiny's Child were the biggest winners of the night. Britney Spears performed I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney, on a platform placed in front of the Fountains of Bellagio.
  5. On September 04, 2003, Britney Spears performed at the NFL Kickoff concert with a medley of Me Against the Music, ...Baby One More Time and I'm a Slave 4 U.
  6. Rolling Stone published a list of what they consider the 30 ***iest videos of all time. At #4, I'm a Slave 4 U by Britney Spears: You can see the full list here
  7. On January 19, 2002, the NRJ Music Awards took place in Cannes, France. Britney Spears was there to perform I'm a Slave 4 U, and she also presented the award for Best International Male Artist. Earlier that day she also had a press conference
