Britney Spears has just dropped a new Dr. Luke produced track titled “Ooh La La” for the Smurfs 2 soundtrack. Being that the song was intended for a children’s movie, I really didn’t set my expectations too high and after hearing it… I’m glad I didn’t! It’s a little too over-the-top cheesy for my liking and the chorus sounds awfully similar to Madonna’s “Superstar“. (Which I wasn’t a huge fan of either.) Still, I’m sure the Britney stans will be smacking their lips on this piece of bubble-gum pop! Check it out and tell me if you’re feeling it in the comments section….
I wasn’t going to post this because I’m not a fan of this remix at all but decided I would go ahead and share it anyway for all you Britney fans that can’t get enough of the pop princess. She definitely gets a little more face time in the new video and I actually like her ghetto-fabulous make over better than the big-haired sorcerous look she dawned in the original video.
While Britney Spears’ latest musical offering “Scream & Shout“ is getting played out into oblivion on the radio, I have been revisiting a few of her album tracks from her last album, Femme Fatale. While that album spawned multiple hit singles, one of my personal favorite tracks off of that album has always been “Gasoline” which never got an official release. A few good bootleg remixes did make the rounds a while back but nothing spectacular… That is until now. This week, up-and-coming producer Cajjmere Wray treated his fans to a previously unreleased remix that he did for “Gasoline“! He’s also offering his remix package (radio/club/dub) as a free download on his official webpage; http://www.cajjmerewray.com/! Take a listen to C.W.’s 2013 revival of this Britney gem if you like what you hear, head on over to his official site to download it for yourself…
Britney Spears – Gasoline (Cajjmere Wray Remix):
DJ DigiMark has just released another EPIC mashup that is hands-down one of my more favorite mashes that he’s put together! This one brings Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Britney Spears’ Femme Fatal album track “Drop Dead Beautiful” together into a perfect union! Mark uses the Peter Rauhofer remix of “Diamonds” as a backdrop for the mash and got very creative with the play on words in his production. You would almost swear that Brit and Ri-Ri where actually in the studio together singing back and forth from one another at the 1:45 mark of the song! Take a listen…
My good friend DJ Nikno has reworked Will.i.am & Britney’s current club banger “Scream & Shout” into a dark and funky anthem! Considering that this song is already the single most bootlegged track of 2013, I have to commend Nikno for actually reimagining the track with a completely new feel and fresh sound which sets this one apart from the sea of bootlegs that sounds so similar! It’s a must listen!!

I kind of swore off reality music competitions last year but with this year’s big name celeb recruits I was starting to gain an interest again… Now after I’ve seen this promo for X Factor USA featuring a catty Britney Spears cringing at a big ol’ queen butchering her own song and then telling a disgruntled reject that called her and Demi Levato “auto-tuned amateurs” that she doesn’t even feel comfortable with him being on stage staring at her… Not to mention Britney’s cray-cray facial expressions that Paula Abdul couldn’t hold a candle to, not even in the midst of her one of her hardest-core Xanax/boxed wine bingers! I’m DEFINITELY watching this shit-show go down when it airs on TV!
After a whole lotta speculation, Simon Cowell and the powers that be at Fox have finally announced that Britney Spears will in fact be judging on the singing competition X Factor! The network also announced that Britney will be sitting on the judging panel along side another Disney allumn, Demi Lovato! Simon himself will of course be reprising head-honcho role on the show as a judge along with music mogul L.A. Reid! So what do you guys think? Are you pleased with Nicole Scherzinger & Paula Abdul’s replacements?? I find the dynamic very interesting myself. Once is a massive star that is known more as an “entertainer” rather than for her vocal prowess while the other is not as huge a name but is gifted with some impressive chops. Then again, I guess you could say the same about Paula vs Nicole.
Reports are rolling in today that Simon Cowell is DETERMINED to make his reality seriesX Factor a hit and has pretty much closed a $15 deal with Britney Spears to sit on the mentor/judging panel this year alongside LA Reid & himself. As of now, noone else has been named to fill the fourth seat on the show but to be honest Simon could hire a talking dog to fill the chair and the viewing public wouldn’t even notice with Britney’s star power shining on the panel! Will you be tuning in to watch Britney mentor these aspiring pop stars through their reality television journey?!
Reports that Britney is in the final stages of joining the cast of US X Factor are spreading like wild-fire on the Internet today and I’m pretty certain that I will fall over in utter disbelief if these stories pan out to be true!! Word is that Simon Cowell himself had his sights on the pop princess and is currently in negotiations with Britney’s fiance/agent Jason Trawick… According to “inside sources” that are being quoted in these reports, a contract could be signed as soon as next week! So far neither Britney’s camp or the X Factor suits have confirmed or denied anything but Cowell has reportedly hinted that “there’s going to be a lot of twists and turns over the next few weeks and a lot of things we’re going to announce.” If Simon has actually pulled off lassoing Britney into this gig, my hat comes off to the guy but I’m going to remain skeptical until there is a solid confirmation!
I’m walking out the door to join in tonight’s New Year festivities but decided to give you guys a nice little New Year’s Eve treat for your ears. Check out Cajjmere Wray’s private remix of Britney Spears’ “Seal It With A Kiss“. The guy just keeps topping himself!! This mix is AMAZING!! Loving the tribal/electro fusion direction that he took with this one. Check it out and if you’re a fan you can download the radio edit from Cajjmere’sSoundcloud page!
Britney Spears – Seal It With A Kiss (Cajjmere Wrays Private Radio Edit):
Congratulations to Britney Spears and her now fiancé Jason Trawick who proposed to her last night while the pair were celebrating Jason’s 40th birthday! The happy lovebirds have been dating for just about 3 years now and are featured in Spears‘ sexy new music video “Criminal” portraying Bonnie & Clyde-esque characters. After her very public & short-lived marriages to Jason Alexander, in 2004 (The Vegas nuptial that lasted for 55 hours) and Kevin Federline… I have a feeling that Britney has finally found “the one”…
Yeah, I know… I’ve been a very bad, bad blogger. I forgot to Wish Britney Spears a happy birthday yesterday! In my defense, I didn’t even have Internet till yesterday afternoon because I have been in the process of moving into my BAD ASS new loft!!! (I’m very excited as if you couldn’t tell) But that’s no excuse… So I would like to wish a Britney a VERY HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!
Speaking of good ol’ Brit, a new song by the pop princess surfaced on her birthday called “Love 2 Love U” which barrows heavily from the Madonna classic “La Isla Bonita” in melody!!! And when I say barrows heavily, I don’t mean in a way where she’s trying to pass it off as her own (like some other artists I know), but as a total homage! Very cute song… Check it out…
Just to break up the Rihanna/Madonna lovefest/Gaga hatin’ on the blog this week… Here’s a little much needed Britney Spears!! Check out this recently leaked video of Mrs. Spears lip-synching to Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams” cover! This sexy/creepy visual was used during an interlude for her Circus Tour some years back and has been locked in a safe somewhere until this week! I am so glad this surfaced because this clip is HOT HOT HOT HHHOOOTTTTT!!!
Britney’s latest single “Criminal” might not be making a huge impact on the charts but it sure is doing great on my dancefloor! Check out this new remix I very recently aquired produced by the very talented Cosmic Dawn. I don’t mean to get overly excited but this is THE BEST MIX OF THE SONG I’VE HEARD SO FAR!! Check it…
