Feature Artist Friday: Britney Spears

Standard

Britney Spears 7th studio album came out this week (March 29) so I wanted to feature some of her songs in the jukebox so y’all could have a listen to her new material. Love her or hate her, you have to be interested in artists new tracks, right?! I, myself have been a fan for a long time. I was that little girl dressing up like Britney and making up dances to her songs with my friends. Whether or not you have been a fan for years, take a listen to Britney Spears songs in the jukebox and let us know what you think!

First up we picked “Inside Out” because we think it’s going to be the next single. This song has serious scandal! It begins innocently enough as Spears croons about “gettin pretty” in the mirror but here’s where the scandal comes in: her soon-to-be-ex shows up at the door and Spears is crying out for him to give her something to remember! “Baby shut your mouth and turn me inside out.” Whoa! It’s a little hot in here! Spears also references two of her earlier hits in “Inside’s” chorus: “…hit me one more time, it’s so amazing…/…you’re the only one who drove me crazy…” (riffing on “…Baby One More Time” and “(You Drive Me) Crazy”).

“I Wanna Go” has a sister on the album (who’s name is “Till The World Ends”). Both are throbbing, pulsing, you-better-dance-now tracks. According to Billboard, “Wanna” was one of the tracks initially teased to fans by Dr. Luke well before the album dropped, a good sign that it may be a candidate for a proper single release.

Surprise, surprise “Seal It With a Kiss” also has a twin. The companion piece to this single, “Inside Out.” Chronologically, “Seal” comes before “Inside” as Spears wishes for a secret affair in “Sealed” that ends with someone showing up at her door in “Inside Out.” Brit excels at this type of sex kitten tease that pushes her listeners to an emotional edge.

The last song we picked is “Criminal” because it is the only ballad on the album. It’s the right close to a “nearly-completely excellent album,” says Billboard. The magazine goes on to cite a similarity in this song to Supertramp’s “The Logical Song” due to the singsongy chorus couplings where all the words end in “als”.
