  1. 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
  2. On November 4, 2013, Britney Spears released Perfume, the second and last single off her eighth studio album Britney Jean. The song was co-written by Britney, Sia and Christopher Braide and produced by Braide, will.i.am and Keith Harris. Her first ballad to be released as a single in many years, talks about Britney's fears in her relationship, that her partner may have another woman, so she sprays her perfume on him to "mark her territory". In July 2013, Britney revealed through Twitter that she had written a song with Sia. In September, during the Desert Performance announcement of her Vegas residency in Good Morning America, she revealed that Perfume was one of her favorite songs of her then upcoming album: "I love the 'Perfume' song. It's really beautiful. I like that song a lot. It's a ballad." After the release of Work *****, it was announced in October that Perfume would be the second single, after RCA Record's CEO Peter Edge said about the song that "she sings it beautifully and it has a real sincerity to it. And it's outstanding - I think people are not only gonna be surprised but also see another side of Britney." Larry Rudolph, Britney's manager, also commented on the song "a breakup song that's about wanting the next girl to smell your perfume on the guy afterwards. The lyric[s] [are] really unique and she sings the **** out of it." Though it was scheduled to be released on November 5, the song was made available through her Facebook on November 3, and it went on sale on November 4. Upon its release, Dr. Luke revealed he had produced a song for Britney Jean and when a fan asked him about Perfume, he revealed that there was another version of the song on the album, a bit rawer (which would later be revealed to be the Dreaming Mix). On November 19, a lyric video was uploaded to her Youtube channel. On November 21, Britney and will.i.am discussed the song with Ryan Seacrest at the iHeartRadio album preview: She also revealed the perfume she sprays is none of her several Fantasy spin-offs, but pikake The song had a poor chart performance, peaking at #76 on the BBH100, while hitting #22 on the Mainstream Top 40. It went #1 on Ukraine though, and #6 in South Korea. A shortened version of Perfume was performed at her Britney: Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas from the beginning until the 2016 revamp, when it was replaced by the Missy Elliott Medley. A music video for the song was released in December 10, but we'll cry talk about it later.
  3. On September 24, 2007, Britney Spears released her fifth fragrance Believe. It steps away from her previous perfumes since its aroma isn't as feminine as they were. After fans noticed this upon its release, the perfume was rebranded as unisex. A controversy was created after it was revealed that the logo of the perfume was a near-copy of a t-shirt campaign by a Vancouver-based charity, called Mondonation. The vice president of the Elizabeth Arden company, allegedly contacted Mondonation to negotiate the solving of the issue.

  5. On September 15, 2005, Britney Spears released her second fragrance for Elizabeth Arden, Fantasy. It followed the successful of her previous perfume released in 2004, Curious, which sold more than $30M in its free three months on sale. Fantasy was created by Jim Krivda. Its notes are red lychee, golden quince, kiwi, cupcake accord, jasmine petals, white chocolate, orchid, musk, orris root and woods. The Fuchsia bottle once featured real Swarovski crystals embedded into the glass and the plastic collar until 2008. The believed reasoning behind the omission is because the glue of the crystal top would melt in higher temperatures. Over the years, 18 flankers of Fantasy have been released, plus some especial editions of the original fragrance. Midnight Fantasy (2006) - "Magic begins at midnight" Hidden Fantasy (2009) - "What do you have to hide?" Circus Fantasy (2009) - "Where nothing is what it seems" Fantasy Twist (2012) - "Choose your fantasy" Island Fantasy (2013) - "A new fragrance" Fantasy: Anniversary Edition (2013) - "10 Hugs & 10 Kisses, xoxo - Britney" Fantasy: The Nice Remix (2014) - "Everybody has one. Naughty or Nice." Fantasy: The Naughty Remix (2014) - "Everybody has one. Naughty or Nice." Fantasy: Stage Edition (2014) - "Everybody has One." Rocker Femme Fantasy (2014) - "Unlock your rock'n'roll side" Fantasy Renner Edition (2015) - "Everybody has one" Fantasy Intimate Edition (2015) - "Everybody has an intimate fantasy" Maui Fantasy (2016) - "Aloha from Hawaii" Fantasy in Bloom (2017) Sunset Fantasy (2018) - "Summer in a bottle" Rainbow Fantasy (2019) - "What color is your fantasy?" Glitter Fantasy (2020) - "Dare to shine" Festive Fantasy (2020) - "Life is a fantasy" In addition to all of those, a Fantasy Pride Edition was released in 2018 during her Piece of Me Tour in Europe And in 2020, a 15 anniversary edition was also released Some of the different Fantasy fragrances have appeared on her music videos over the years
  6. On September 14, 2004, Britney Spears launched what would be the first fragrance of her (still ongoing) perfume emporium, Curious. It's a women's fragrance for Elizabeth Arden, and Britney reportedly earned $52 million from the endorsement. Curious was very successful internationally. It was the number one fragrance of 2004 in department stores, and in 2005, it was honored by the Fragrance Foundation as Best Women's Fragrance. The fragrance is a white floral scent. Its notes are Louisiana magnolia, golden Anjou pear, lotus flower, tuberose, star jasmine, pink cyclamen, vanilla-infused musk, sandalwood and blonde woods. The TV advertisement for Curious, "Hotel Rooms," was conceived at agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and directed by Dave Meyers. Actor Eric Winter plays Spears' love interest in the TV commercial. On the Circus music video, we can see Britney putting on the Curious perfume. Two other flankers were released: Curious in Control in 2006 and Curious Heart in 2008 In 2005 she would release Fantasy, her most successful fragrance, but we'll save that for a separate post, since its anniversary is tomorrow.
  7. Britney was actually singing live for 'Perfume' on her POM Show I tried to isolate her vocals and this is the best result i could get: In the chorus you hear Sia's back vocals but you can still hear Brit singing ENJOY (p.s. put headphones on)
  8. The original Make Me video was partially leaked back in 2016, within weeks of the release of the official video. so why hasn’t the original leaked yet? All we have is a picture of Britney holding a Also plz check out my fanmade video for Bad Idea by Ariana Grande
  9. Hello everyone ❤️ How beautiful is it in this commercial? My favorite look is the black one. 😍https://youtu.be/zN9rm-CTCa8 What's yours? 😘
  10. Hey there! I was just listening to my Britney Jean vinyl, and while playing Perfume I was thinking that now's a time for justice campaigns and that Britney may hear us...why don't we promote a #justiceforperfumevideo campaign... We deserve to see the original version of the video, and maybe Britney won't do it, but Joseph Khan will release it! Who knows...it's just an idea... From Spain I cannot do much about it, but you who live in America could start something and get the message through! Michael, ***
  11. Does anyone have pictures from inside of the fantasy 10th anniversary box? I want to see if my name is there because I remember to see it but I want to make sure before buying the perfume. If someone could take pictures and send me I would really appreciate. Thank you 🙏
  12. don’t ask what they smell like yet cuz they are in my checked bags and I only took pics of them lol
  13. Hiya, Boots have some AMAZING offers on Britneys perfumes atm, I got 100ml of prerogative for £20.00 https://www.boots.com/britney-spears/all-britney-spears-fragrance here’s the link, lots on offer including private show, intimate fantasy etc ? x
  14. 1:21 0:42 Does anyone know if any other famous person mentioned her perfumes as well? Im just curious (no pun intended)
  15. LOL cant believe (Midnight) Fantasy even has its own ripoff now (wasnt even aware they do sth like that with perfumes - only know it with karaoke songs - in the style of...). Where is my far superior Curious ripoff?!? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DXLDZHR/ref=sspa_dk_detail_3?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07DXLDZHR&pd_rd_w=g7RiP&pf_rd_p=21517efd-b385-405b-a405-9a37af61b5b4&pd_rd_wg=5p981&pf_rd_r=6NGZBTX9EF0JDV9DPGYT&pd_rd_r=07ed2aba-156e-11e9-8585-ebc516039c37 Mysterious fanciful har har
  16. Hey guys! My friend is giving her birthday party soon and as she is a huge Britney fan as well I was thinking of buying her the prerogative perfume. Does anyone now where I can buy it? I looked on the biggest perfume websites, bol.com, and I tried via the shopping link in google but I haven't been able to find a way to buy the perfume yet. Please help me out!
  17. So I snatched a 30ml Prerogative from Boots - it comes with a 10ml rollerball as a gift, which is nice. So anyway, when it comes to the scent itself... I love it. It reminds me a lot of YSL Black Oppium (which is iconic and I consider it unisex-ish) & and has some hints of Midnight Fantasy. The more masculine vibe starts to kick in 10-15 mins after you spray it, but it is definitely on the sweeter side, which is okay, because there’s plenty of sweet-smelling colognes. So all in all, if you like your fragrances on the sweeter side and usually avoid wearing super feminine ones, this would be a weird combination of both, hence the “fragrance for all” tagline hah.
  18. Hi, Was shocked to see Boots in the UK are selling the prerogative perfumes already even though some stores said they arent going on sale until september, ordered mine and if you didnt know comes with a free rollerball to carry with you, the smell is amazing and will definately be wearing it to the concert next week :) anyone else got theres in the UK yet and what do you think? -Reece
  19. I was in the car the other day listening to an old playlist when Perfume feat. Sia came on. My initial reaction was to skip the song, since I wasn't in the mood to hear a heavily edited 'ballad' with upbeat instrumentals, but I started listening to the lyrics and thought... 'you know what? There's actually something here.' Granted, when you listen to the radio version of Perfume and/or re-watch the angsty music video, the entire production just feels painfully commercial. But when you strip everything away and add a couple new instrumentals (which I took the liberty of doing because I had time today), Perfume is really beautiful...and sad. Honestly, if Britney had released this acoustic version and if her team had created a video that reflected the depth of the lyrics, I think we could've had another Everytime on our hands. Forgive my average video editing skills, but what are your thoughts?
  20. Hi everyone! I won a hand signed autograph of Britneys perfume Private Show last year. I’m just wondering if anyone knows where I can sell it and how much I should be asking for it? Im not a collector and I’m going to see Britney in Manchester in August so I’d rather put the money towards travel and hotel for that. thanks in advance
  21. Hello everyone! If anyone is interested I have created my own ranking of songs per albums! I have only uploaded the first album so far but I have ranked all of them. I want to see if people are interested so that I upload the rest albums! I tried to find pictures from photoshoots she did at the time each album came out so that every picture would fit the song. So it's also a great display of her amazing photoshoots she had done throughout the years! If you find it interesting and worthy please let me know at the comments on the video so I would proceed with the other albums and also tell me your own ranking at the comments! I want to upload all of the albums, I just need to know there are people who will look out for them. Thank youuuuuu .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs3AoxQgzg4
  22. So I was looking at this thread : And found myself browsing Britney's fragrances on this site: https://www.fragrantica.com On the Private Show page, it says that the perfume reminds many of Shawn Mendes Signature . https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Britney-Spears/Private-Show-39382.html And so I went to his fragrance page and yup! Many say it's a good PS dupe. https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Shawn-Mendes/Shawn-Mendes-Signature-46269.html The main note from both scenes happens to be Dulce de leche, giving them that delicious sweet smell. I found out that Signature's is more tropical and lighter compared to PS's cozy and musky coffee-like smell. Anyway. I just thought of sharing this. Maybe you guys already knew about this looool This is brand new info for me Loool. Also, has any of you tried Shawn Mendes Signature? I own PS but I'm curious to smell his unisex perfume. Oh and one of the comments mentioned about not liking how feminine Signature scent was at first but it sort of grew on him after people complimented how good he smelled. So I guess PS - even though it's sweeter than Mendes's -- is the closest thing to a unisex fragrance we can get for now lol. Although I think fragrances are just fragrances. If you like it, just wear it no matter if you're a woman or a man tbh.
