Britney’s iconic name “check” in her own songs and singles…

Recommended Posts

For this post, I would like to shine a light to Britney Spears songs and singles where she or the featured artist mentions her name. It’s more than the iconic “It’s Britney, *****!” on the “Gimme More” single from 2007. If we analyze Britney’s discography, she has used this trend for several year (since 1999), and in the ‘Blackout’ era was the most direct and avantgarde into the mainstream pop landscape.

For me, the songs and singles where she mentions her name, are the most innovative from her career. At least, I believe that it’s used in a very original way and portrays the powerful Britney we all love. In the featured artist or collaboration type of song, is more common to name-check the other artist. 


Here are the “name-check” of Britney’s name in her own songs/singles:

1)      “Soda Pop” (1999)*

2)      “Oops!… I Did It Again” (2000)

3)      “Lonely” (2001)*

5)      “Boys (The Co-Ed Remix)”, Britney Spears feat. Pharrell Williams (2002)
