If it wasn’t obvious before, it is now. RCA added “It Should Be Easy” to more radio stations, and created four official remixes for the song. That’s not done unless the song is a single, or at the very least a SERIOUS contender.
I’ve replayed the original more times than I can count in the last few days hoping it’d catch on for me, but nope. I’m not feeling it, and I can’t force a pop song to take me over. There are other songs off “Britney Jean” that SHOULD be getting the attention, but instead this feels like a cold business decision made months ago.
Someone should tell RCA “It Should Be Easy” is NO “Scream & Shout.” The formula Will + Britney = hit is inconsistent. That song was ahead of it’s time and a real classic. The vocals of ISBE only perpetuate the stereotype Britney can’t sing – and I won’t blame the general public for running with that when they hear Robo-Britney on it. I get it, I get it – it’s the artistry of the song, but I can’t help think R2D2 from Star Wars could sing this, too.
Check out a few snippets of the remixes thanks to Sound Off here:
#UnusualYou #InsideOut #BodyAche #TillItsGone
And while I’m at it, #NowThatIFoundYou is a ******* anthem.
Tell me how you feel in Exhale.
