  1. Blackout & Its Relationship to the Tabloid Culture of the 00s https://www.culledculture.com/britney-spears-blackout-10th-anniversary/ any thoughts?
  2. If you wanna fly, come and take a space ride with a…wait, wrong artist. I didn’t think I’d remix Gimme More again after already doing 3 of them, but this is the best yet. Complete with a synthwave solo. I guess I just wanted more. DOWNLOAD
  3. On October 25, 2007, Britney Spears released her fifth studio album Blackout. The dance-pop / electropop record was executive produced by Britney, and recorded between 2006 and 2007. Other collaborators of the album were Danja, Bloodshy & Avant, Sean Garrett, Jim Beanz, Keri Hilson, The Neptunes, J. R. Rotem, among others. Blackout incorporates Euro disco and dubstep influences and its lyrical content revolves around fame, ***, clubbing and the media scrutiny she was subject of during the time of its recording. Though the album was scheduled for a November release, it had to be rushed released due to a leak of the tracks ahead of time. It was released on the 25 in Spain, and in the subsequent days it was released across other European countries and Australia. It was officially released in the US on October 30. In June Britney had posted on her website a poll for the fans to choose the title of the album. The options were: OMG Is Like Lindsay Lohan Like Okay Like What If the Joke Is on You Down Boy Integrity Dignity Ultimately, in October Jive Records announced that the album would come out in November and that it would be titled Blackout. According to Jive it “refers to blocking out negativity and embracing life fully.” The album peaked at #2 on the US BB200, becoming Britney's first album not to reach the top position on that list. It was also #2 in France, Mexico and UK, but it did reach #1 on the European Top 100 Albums charts, as well as the Australian, Canadian and Irish lists. Three singles were released off this album: Gimme More, Piece of Me and Break the Ice. Besides the VMA's 2007 performance, the album didn't receive more promotion except for phone interview with Ryan Seacrest for his radio show. No tour accompanied this album either, however, many of the Blackout tracks were performed during the Circus Tour in 2009, as well as subsequent shows of Britney. She mentioned Heaven on Earth as a highlight of the album. According to Ezekiel Lewis of The Clutch, Radar was also intended to be released as a single but was pushed back once she started recording new material (after being placed under the conservatorship). In 2017, The Fader did an article for its 10th anniversary, where Britney commented about the album Danja also shared his experience recording the album You can read more of it here. In an interview uploaded to Britney's official Youtube channel to promote Circus (released a year after Blackout), Britney is asked to compare both albums and describes Blackout as darker and edgier: In 2008, Blackout won Best Album award at the MTV Europe Music Awards, and also International Album of the Year at the NRJ Awards. In 2012, the album was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's music library. You can listen to the album here:
  4. Hello everyone! I decided to make this little game where you have to choose the worst single from every Britney album. In Round 4 Outrageous was chosen as the worst single from In The Zone with 229 votes. Round 5 is starting and you have to choose the worst single from Blackout. I think that the era served really good singles and the choice isn’t really easy. Sadly, I'm going to choose Break The Ice, because Piece Of Me is my fave Britney song of all time and Gimme More is too iconic. I love Break The Ice and it's definetly an amazing single choice, but the others are just better for me You can share your choice with us down in the comments.
  5. On October 5, 2007 Britney Spears officially released her Gimme More music video through the iTunes store, after having leaked the day before. It debuted on October 8 on TRL and other outlets. It was directed by Jake Sarfaty and it was filmed on July 19, 2007 in Los Angeles. An alternative version with unseen footage leaked in 2011.
  6. “Baby **** you...” I mean the way she says that line slayed my 15 year old existence and still does. The ATTITUDE. The SASS. The NOT giving a F! We love this Britney. This song has always been intriguing to me. It’s so dark, gritty, truthful....B girl was serving a mood. Anyone have thoughts on this song? Know any fun facts? Memories? Who is it really about? I'd be curious to hear everyone’s opinions. Now there’s another ringing my bell...
  7. Can someone tell me if this was intended for Britney please? It sounds like a Blackout demo and the girl singing is clearly trying to sound like Britney. I’ve never heard this and it randomly popped up on my Spotify playlist. Thanks!
  8. I know we're all a little disgusted that Mood Ring hasn't entered the Hot 100, but that can't get us away from the idea that we can't let Britney be forgotten in music while we wait for something new. Every The time we do a #JusticeFor, believe it or not, we are making the media and fans in general have to talk about Britney. I think that is the goal of all this. I also think Britney listens to us and knows that she is still present in our hearts and it is also a way of saying to her team: 'We are here and we need new music' and press them a bit to do it. For now I will be supporting the #JusticeForBlackout for the meaning it had for us, in the lower moments of Britney she brought us the best of her. #JusticeForBlackout June 15, 2020
  9. Ok so after my platinum thread i was thinking of another song that i felt meh about meaning i don't find it good nor bad and this one came up and it's from blackout so verrrryy controversial anyways drop ur opinions on outta this world down below do u guys like it? i've never seen it on ppl's top 5 of blackout so
  10. Hope u like it! https://www.instagram.com/p/B-iWud8lB1A/
  11. Someone sent me a link for this like 4 years ago but since then I actually lost the files so I'd really appreciate if someone could help me get them back
  12. I mean, check out the demo of this song Then the official one: Is it just me or the official version isn't as good? I feel like there's too much pitch correction, the demo has a better ending, the "oooh"s at 0:12 and so on by a woman impersonating (?) Xtina in the beginning doesn't fit the song for me. And Britney's vocals are just. Too much. Autotuned. It might be just me and nostalgia as I remember myself blasting to this leaked demo in 2007... but I still miss the fun that you can clearly hear in the demo. And I don't mind that she's off key in some parts, it's a fun song, like it should be. Btw please don't come at me, I really love Blackout anyway, demos or not
  13. Following the limited Vinyl editions from the Urban Outfitters, the album managed to snatch some entries on this week's Billboard charts: Top Album Sales Re-entry at #95, first time charting since December 20, 2008! Vinyl Albums Debuts at #9 and becomes her third Top 10 album here. Catalog Album Sales Debuts at #18 and becomes her sixth entry on the chart.
  14. Here’s my stab at a FREAKSHOW video! If anything this is a perfect example of how desperate I am for literally anything new and Britney related at all. idk how to embed an IGTV video, so here’s a link to it: Link to FREAKSHOW Video Enjoy & BOO!
  15. Welcome to The People's Republic of Exhale, everyone! In this thread Exchange Express yourself!, I wanted to discuss our favourite album covers for every Britney album. It can be both an official album cover or a fanmade one, just an album cover you love. It also doesn't have to be only one, but also don't post, like, 15. So, without further ado, let's begin! Here are my picks: ...Baby One More Time Oops!... I Did It Again Britney In The Zone Blackout Circus Femme Fatale This is the most covers I'll post in this thread: Britney Jean Glory The covers above are easily my favourite fanmade Britney album cover in existence... it's so amazing. I just wish higher quality versions of them existed... Those are all the covers I can think of right now. I couldn't decide on one, so almost all of the albums have more than one cover posted. Also, congratulations to Babblative Japanophilia for being the only Britney album of which the official cover I consider one of the best.
  16. Catholicney. Smileney Underwearney Getting dressedney. Only rules: Underrated/unappreciated and from the Blackout era.

  18. I'm a big fan of Britney Spears since HMBOMT hit the air waves when I was in High School. Since that moment I became a super fan and loved everything she did in the follow up albums. I remember when Britney was the coolest star out there and when cutting edge moments on albums including Breathe on Me were the norm. Britney was a trend setter and a game changer. Nothing could stop her. Then Blackout happened and I declared from that moment on that nothing Britney ever did would stop me being a die hard eternal fan because with music that good, that innovative, that contemporary... She had released a album that would possibly be my all time favourite album ever. I recall just being amazed by Break The Ice, Get Naked (I got a Plan) and Heaven on Earth. Oh and don't even get me started on how insanely good Get Back was. Britney's team were desperate to get her star power and image back after Blackout so invested heavily in CIRCUS. A huge album that spawned over 500,000 US sales in its first week (difficult to imagine in 2018). But her team wanted her to get those number 1 hits. Womanizer was the most expensive video of that year and Circus had an empowering theme that connected to old and new fans. Britney was essentially something other than a *** kitten and it paid off. A fantastic ballad also featured in Out from Under and the fan favourite Unusual You (coupled with Danja's Kill The Lights) meant this was a Britney Classic. Then Femme Fetale hit, and with over 500,000 sales of the lead single HIAM who cared if the album felt a little generic or impersonal, it did not matter because the huge monster hits were there, TTWE and of course IWGo all spawned huge international hits that fit perfectly in Britney's legacy. Oh and throw in classic moments such as Inside Out, Criminal and the innovative How I Roll and the fans and public were happy. As a die hard fan I couldn't help but reflect that Britney's team were getting a little complacent from the art work/ concept of FF and the general depth of the album that seemed distinctly impersonal compared to Circus, but hey, this is an abstract view, but I sensed after FF we desperately needed a more urban and thoughtful album that focused on Britney's overall image that could connect meaningfully with its fan base but more importantly, the younger generation. Then came Scream and Shout, and Britney's team were clearly blown away, a HUGE international hit with Britney at the heart of it! Yes, lets get the medicare and lacklustre William to create and produce the iconic star's album. I was so shocked when this album released and how grotesque it appeared that Larry had the audacity to say this was Britney's most... 'personal to date'. It was so incongruent and that album sounded so dated, as in early 2000's material for Z-lister stars. I couldn't understand why her team didn't seem to give a damn about keeping her relevant, cool and offering her gold hits? Then perfume was released with a very mundane video because the original video (the creative and interesting video had been scalped) had been kept aside due to fear of damaging Britney's appeal (and Vegas tickets I am sure). I can never forgive William and Britney's team for destroying her legacy in one terrible move. Two singles, one that charted outside the top ten the other didn't even make a dent. Sigh. And this is all after FF. What happened? William happened. And Britney'e team allowed it to happen. Britney can only ever be as good the team around her, she can shine so brightly, but only if she has worthy people around her. Work ***** was okay, but after FF I think it was a poor choice due to needing to connect with a fan base and public that want more than hard beats and **** images. Times have changed and are changing fast. Work ***** was okay. Its an anthem. But did nothing to grow Britney's fan base or make her appear cool and contemporary. Then I remembered Blackout. Its okay told myself, her team would eventually get get back on top in a huge return to the music scene, with a killer video, amazing remixes, right? I mean why not? This is a huge star with huge star power, why not invest in that star power? Strangely, we then get Glory. For me personally, I never now listen to this album. Im not hating here, but I am stating clearly that there are no classic Brtiney hits in my mind. The sounds were following trends. It sounded liken a B-side to FF. I want more How I Roll's, more Breathe on Me's, heck I want a new Toxic. Im not in the past here, but I know what Britney is capable of, and Make Me just did not cut it. Perhaps if the music video was even a 4/10 I might have been more kindly, but that video was the WORST video of Britney's career. And to top it off, she looks once again like a middle aged *** kitten hooking up with the cast of her video, not the right image in 2018 where woman and girls are far more aware of standing up for empowerment, having a strong mind set and generally having depth. I hated the released video, it was generic, uncool, dated, bland, boring... and this is Britney freaking Spears. What the heck happened? Oh yeah, Vegas. Why bother investing in her when her team and everyone around her are making a ton of $$$. Whats the point? Well in my mind a star even as big as Britney can only thrive on legacy and star power for so long. The new Vegas Domination advert is using TTWE and thats for a reason. There are no hits to use following FF that could be used (regardless of what you think about the music). Without the music, without the team around Brtiney, without the newsworthy music videos, without the stylists, without the care and dedication, without the innovative producers and writers, then Britney will forever be a star of the past. What good are endless Vegas shows if the music never matches the investment in her gigs? In my humble opinion Britney needs a break to reflect and to drive for a number one smash hit with an incredible cutting edge video (can you even imagine that in 2018?) and a concept album that for once veers away from **** facial imagery, **** moves, and actually incorporates *** appeal with some kind of awesomeness, whatever that might be (whether it be concept, lyrics, video, visuals, depth, personal investment, current producers/ anything...) To be honest, at this stage I have to expect nothing and to be disappointed and to reach for Blackout and ITZone and remind myself why I will always be a huge fan of this legendary and iconic super star. But what good is a legendary superstar with no current hits? Sure it makes people a ton of $$$ but is that enough? Is it fair to Britney or her fans? Thanks for listening, this post has been building up for so many years! J-Maxx
  19. Just uploaded the Blackout album! So far I've made the first 5 albums! I'll keep uploading till Glory! I use photoshoots from each era that would fit for every song! What's your Blackout ranking?
  20. Guys, I've realized next month marks 10 years of Womanizer and the beginning of the Circus (Comeback) era. Probably one of my favorite. https://www.instagram.com/p/BoB5pqBlvWb/
  21. So I was curious and as a baby stan I'm doing my bit of research. I of course knew about the 2007 VMA's before stanning Godney, but it feels so weird to see this happening around the same time. It could be the bad quality of the videos, but she doesn't look out of it at all, she looks like she's in sync with the music, and she puts on a good show. Obviously no live vocals, but that's to be expected. Although, the pointing at her nose on Toxic while on the "I need a hit" part is really dark and took me by surprise, I'm so used to POMney that it looks tragic and makes me feel bad for her. Also, interesting that she performed Breathe on Me, must be one of her favourites. I know she said it would've been a single had she not got injured, or something like that. So my main questions would be, what the hell happened between this and the VMAs? I'm assuming this is before the VMAs because there are no Blackout songs but it's clearly 2007. What did fans at the time think of the whole thing? I'm guessing people were looking forward to Blackout. The 2007 VMAs were supposed to be her comeback, but we know now it wouldn't happen until later.
  22. Hey guys, so I'm starting my own podcast it's going to be called Unpopular Opinions, and it's about what the title says: Unpopular Opinions about pop culture. So I will do the third episode about Britney, focusing on Blackout, how influential it was and how unpopular/underrated is in the GP. I'm looking for a Britney Expert to join the panel via Skype with me also, and to discuss it with another two journalists. I'm planning this big so I really need you to tell me a few unpopular opinions about Blackout or Britney that you've heard in the GP. It's interesting because 80% of the people when asked about Britney, will always bring 2007 to the conversation and most of the time not knowing about Blackout. So it will be a good chance to give Blackout and that era a little more credit. I will also give a history background so the people who will hear the podcast gets all the essential facts. So to sum up I need: 1. A good Blackout storyteller. 2. Unpopular opinions about Britney /Blackout from the GPS. 3. And a top facts that shouldn't be missed. Thank you in advance. Noury Lizarraga
