  1. On November 28, 2008 Britney Spears released Circus, her sixth studio album, in several European countries. It was released in the United States on December 02 that year, on her birthday. Executive produced by Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph and Theresa LaBarbera, who had collaborated with Britney on Blackout, the predominantly pop album incorporates a lot of rhythms and styles, from sweet ballads such as Out from Under and My Baby, to dance mid-tempos like Unusual You and Shattered Glass, to pop-rock tracks like Rock Me In. The record enlisted many of the collaborators from Britney's past career, like Max Martin, Danja, Guy Sigsworth and Bloodshy & Avant. Other producers were Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, The Clutch, Fernando Garibay, Rob Knox, The Outsyiders, Nicole Morier, among others. Lady Gaga co-wrote the bonus track exclusive to selected countries, Quicksand. The album topped six charts, including the US BB200 and the European Top 100 Albums, while being Top 5 in 10 other countries. It was also Top 10 in the majority of other countries where it charted. Four singles were released in total: Womanizer, Circus, If U Seek Amy and Radar, the latter of which was a bonus track that was originally included on her previous album, Blackout. Kill the Lights received a promo release in a limited edition bonus disc that came with the perfume Circus Fantasy, along with a Circus remix. An animated video was made, with a shortened version of the song, after the concept for it won a fan contest where they had to choose a track of the album and elaborate a storyline for a potential video. Unusual You was rumored to be released as a single in some parts such as Australia and New Zealand. The Discogs website lists an unofficial release for the song, that also included Shattered Glass as track 2. It was never confirmed by Britney's team nor record label the legitimacy of the single. The Deluxe edition of the album includes 15 tracks, Radar included. The bonus tracks released across the different versions around the world are Rock Boy, Amnesia, Trouble and Quicksand. There's two CD + DVD editions that include the Womanizer and Circus videos, the making of these and some photo galleries. In the summer of 2008 it was confirmed that Britney was working on her "comeback album". In an interview for OK! Magazine, Britney described the album as being "more urban" and "her best work to date". One of the first producers to be confirmed for the album was Rodney Jerkins, he commented to Rap-UP TV that the two songs he was working on were "very dance-y, really up-tempo, in the clubs, real aggressive, catchy and very hook-friendly. I'm trying to reinvent her and reinvent myself with the project. I think it's about to be her time again". Another producer confirmed at the time was Sean Garrett, he told EW about working with Britney: "We’re trying to take her stuff to the next level. I’m going to come up with something crazy for her. I like to work on an artist when they count them out...and bring them back". None of these producers' songs made the final tracklist. Other collaborators confirmed but that also didn't appear in the final album were Lil Jon and Taio Cruz. Britney mentioned this had been the longest she had worked on an album. She described Circus as being "lighter" in comparison to the previous record Blackout. On her birthday in 2008, the day of the release of the album in the US, she performed Circus and Womanizer on Good Morning America. Other promo performances for this era were the Bambi Awards in Germany, Star Academy in France, The X Factor UK and in Japan Hey! Hey! Hey! Music Champ and NTV Best Artist. She performed Womanizer in all these appearances. Besides that, in 2009 she embarked on The Circus Starring: Britney Spears tour, however only the 4 singles and Mannequin were included on the setlist. Lace and Leather would be later performed at her Femme Fatale Tour in 2011.
  2. There’s a new Glory vinyl available for presale via Resident Music. It features a newish cover. According to them, there are TWO never before released songs included, as well as the "Mood Ring" remixes. We know "Swimming in the Stars." What's the other? Release date is Dec 4th.
  3. 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
  4. I thought this would be a fun and entertaining thread Let's post singers who attempted (or not) to emulate Britney's voice during certain brief moments in their careers I'll start with this, she kinda sounds like Britney in the chorus Slayyyer's whole career is basically a Britney tribute lol This sounds like 90s Brit And of course...Myah lol
  5. BritneyOnline claims Britney herself came up with the idea of the Glory re-release and fully supports it. I believe this is true and Britney will announce it soon as a birthday present! BritneyOnline also claims these are the lyrics to one of the new songs, "Matches":
  6. On November 28, 2012, will.i.am released the music video for Scream & Shout, featuring Britney Spears. It was premiered during The X Factor, where Britney was participating as a judge at the time, and it was later uploaded to his official VEVO channel. The music video was directed by Ben Mor. It was filmed in October in Los Angeles. will.i.am described the concept for the video as "uber fresh fashion". He originally intended the video and the song to be released at the same time, but due to the song leaking, they had to officially release it a few days earlier. The music video doesn't really have a storyline but it's more about the imagery and symbolism of the song. We see will.i.am and Britney in front of white and black backgrounds, in different poses and activities, as well as some extras and shots of several objects. Ben Mor, who would work with Britney the next year for her music video Work *****, told MTV News that he had one word in mind for the production of this video "iconic". He said: He also commented in the relationship will and Britney had with each other on set: About the disco ball in flames: Ben Mor would also work with will and Britney in early 2013 to shoot the remix video of the song. Before the release of the videoclip, Britney Spears commented on working with will.i.am through an official statement: "There are few people on the planet who inspire me like will.i.am does. I couldn't be more excited to work with him again. I can't wait for people to hear the song and see the video." The music video became a hit. To this day, it's got over 800M views, making it the most watched video on YouTube of both artists. Related:
  7. Does anyone have the HQ version of New Millennium? or atleast a remastered version that makes it more listenable?
  8. On November 27, 2008, the Bambi Awards of that year took place in Offenburg, Germany. Britney Spears performed there her latest hit Womanizer, the lead single off her sixth studio album Circus. This marked Britney's return to the European TV, but it was also her first televised performance since she performed at the VMA's in 2007, a number that was heavily criticized by the public and media. Before this, she had only recently performed as a guest at Madonna's tour. In this ceremony, she was also honored with the Best International Pop Star award, which was presented to her by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away in February 2019.
  9. On November 27, 2007, Britney Spears released Piece of Me, the second single off Blackout. It was written by Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg (Bloodshy & Avant) along with Klas Åhlund. The electropop song talks about Britney's relationship with the media. Despite the unwritten rule of not writing songs that talked about Britney's personal life, the producers recorded the song anyway and sent it to Britney, who loved it and decided to record it. Piece of Me was actually the last song of the album to be recorded. According to Winnberg, she learned the lyrics of the song in her car while she was heading to the studio, where she finished the song in less than half an hour. Robyn, who also recorded a demo of the song, provides background vocals, alternating with Åhlund the "piece of me's" that we hear in the chorus in a robotized voice, while Bloodshy & Avant sing the "Extra! Extra!". After the album release in October, Britney talked about the song in a small interview she had with Ryan Seacrest over the phone The song peaked at #18 in the BBH100 but hit the #1 on the US Dance Club Songs chart. It was Top 10 and several countries, including #1 in Ireland. She's performed the song in her Circus Tour, Femme Fatale Tour, and her Vegas Residency, which was named after the track, Britney: Piece of Me. In 2008 a Remix EP was released The music video wasn't released until December, so we'll "celebrate" that later
  10. Britney Spears' label RCA is releasing a Deluxe edition of "Glory." El Corte Inglés (a Spanish store) leaked the tracklist of the re-Release. Their tracklist includes "Mood Ring" + Remixes + "Swimming In The Stars" and ANOTHER new song called "Matches." It's rumored to feature the Backstreet Boys. Update: Rumored lyrics courtesy of Britney-Online: The songs will be out on December 4th. Are you guys ready for the serves? Glory Deluxe tracklist: Invitation Do You Wanna Come Over? Make Me. Private Show Man On The Moon Just Luv Me Clumsy Slumber Party Just Like Me Loe Me Down Hard To Forget Ya What You Need Better Change Your Mind (No Seas Cortes) Liar If I'm Dancing Coupure Êlectrique Mood Ring Swimming In The Stars Matches Mood Ring (By Demand) Mood Ring (By Demand) Mood Ring (By Demand)
  11. Kelis - Milkshake (Official Music Video) - YouTube This would have been perfect with Britney's voice This would have been on In The Zone i think ? It's way better than Outrageous Why can't i embed youtube videos anymore
  12. Everyone here knows "Toxic" and "Womanizer" are two parts of one storyline. What they might not know is that those aren't the only parts of the storyline. The unreleased director's cut of "Perfume" followed Britney as an assassin. The same assassin that she plays in the above two videos, per Joseph Kahn, who directed all three, plus "Stronger". Since three of his four videos focus on the same heroine, I lump the fourth ("Stronger") in with them as the "origin story". And "Break the Ice", whose concept was conceived by Britney, was pitched as an action-packed animated video featuring the same heroine from "Toxic", meaning "Break the Ice" is a midquel between "Toxic" and "Womanizer". One could even argue that the same heroine is the character that Britney portrays throughout the "Femme Fatale Tour", as she is implied to be some sort of immortal assassin being chased through time by some evil stalker. (In one of the video interludes he directly namedrops her as being Mata Hari, who was born over 140 years ago.) So what are everyone's thoughts on the main storyline weaving throughout Britney's videography?
  13. ..' The first half of the movie shows Junie’s come up as a Hollywood starlit. Even from the age of three Junie is depicted as having strings attached to her, showing how she is both literally controlled by her mom, but also figuratively held captive by both her mom and society as a whole. Junie’s first relationship is also arranged for her by a PR team, and when her first boyfriend Zachary Wilderness rapes her and releases the footage online, he is held to zero account for his action, meanwhile Junie is treated as a **** for engaging in ***ual activity before marriage. Not only is Junie treated like an object to be controlled, she also has virtually no control over what she says publicly. In all of her interviews as a kid, she is given a script by her PR team where she mostly appeals to god as a way of getting out of public scandal. A lot of this is meant to closely mirror the real life experiences of Brittany Spears and Lindsey Lohan, and it arguably does so to pretty good effect...'

  15. Snippets are leaking. Apparently they're from 2011 and produced by The-Dream.
  16. https://www.instagram.com/p/CIBXGtOr3iJ/?igshid=1vl3ptwchhrvt ITZney is that *****, when will ur faves
  17. Hi Just wanted to share with you the Joy Of Pepsi (Official Commercial) restored in 4K, the next videos are Anticipating (4K Remastered), We Will Rock You (ft. Beyoncé and Pink - 4K Remastered), Overprotected Darkchild Remix (QHD Restored). Hope you will enjoy this one!
  18. I was watching the Shawn Mendes documentary "In wonder" on Netflix and it reminded me a lot of the "Stages" documentary that Britney released in 2002, but better produced, in my opinion, sorry Why don't they put at least the DWAD tour there (is it because it was broadcast by HBO at the time and thus belongs to the HBO streaming platform? Does anyone who owns HBO know if this tour is there?) Or the documentary "For the Record?" Her team is missing out on so many opportunities to show the new generation her history... It's good that when she returns with the B10, her team decides to make a good documentary that focuses on the recent trajectory of her life, how to get free c-ship and its studio recording sessions, but at the same time review her trajectory until today and everything it has achieved and her legacy in the Pop history.
  19. Sorry if this is already discussed! I was talking to couple of my friends and surprisingly a lot of them (not Britney fan) think she is not done yet and expect she have a long way to go in her career! what do you think if Britney is done or she will come back and dominate music industry again?
  20. Like it’s so funny to me how the majority of her old Making the Video and MTV documentaries/specials such as Diary, Total Britney Live, All Eyes On, etc. haven’t been digitally released aside from VCR rips. Not to mention, I can’t imagine the hours and amount of unseen Britney Spears footage Viacom/MTV has in storage. Can someone start a petition on like change.org or personally reach out for them to start releasing these things? I know for a fact people, including myself, would actually pay good money to see vintage, uncut Britney footage of her just killing the Stronger chair choreo or being backstage at a TRL appearance. Imagine finally being able to see the full uncut VMA rehearsal footage of her 1999-2003 performances. Please, we need this to happen and we need it to happen now. Don’t be shy MTV.
  21. Was scrolling through a Gaga Daily thread and saw this post: What do you think? I think i personally disagree because BOMT outsold all her albums released in her peak combined lmbo. Not to mention she was the most searched person on the internet for 12 years straight and Gaga never really outtook her. Do you guys agree? lemme know
