Video Premiere: Britney Spears Ft. Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls

by: Taj | May 13th, 2015

Well here it is… The hotly anticipated visual for Britney Spears’ latest single “Pretty Girls” which features a lot of assistance from Iggy Azalea. I’m loving/hating the clip at the same time. I love the 80s campiness, I think Britney looks amazing, the dance-break was unexpected and fun! The “acting” scene in the middle of the clip was just awful in every way! The ending was cheesy and boring. But overall it’s a fun, mindless pop video!

New Music: Britney Spears Ft. Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls

by: Taj | May 2nd, 2015

Fans seem to be very divided on Britney Spears’ just released new single “Pretty Girls” which features a little of assistance from Iggy Azalea! Either they absolutely love it or hate it. So I broke down the pros and cons of the song to help you decided for yourselves…

PROS

- Waaaay better than Tom’s Diner

- Iggy Azalea

- A refreshing detour from the predictable edm-pop she’s gotten way too complacent repeating over and over.

- Sound like she actually put a little extra effort in recording the vocals on this one!

- The lyrics are campy and fun and sounds like the video (which is supposedly inspired by the 80′s teen-camp movie “Earth Girls Are Easy“) will be as well!

CONS

- Sounds like “Fancy” Part II.

- Iggy Azalea

- The vocals will not lend themselves easily to the remixes.

- Sounds like they auto-tuned the already auto-tuned vocal for extra measure.

With that said… I will now reveal my take on the song…

I LOVE IT!!! So much better than her botched Suzan Vega remake and a refreshing direction for her to take. I am going to go ahead and predict this will be one of the biggest songs of the summer!

Sneak Peek: Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls (Clip)

by: Taj | May 1st, 2015

The chorus for the hotly anticipated Britney Spears/Iggy Azalea duet “Pretty Girls” has just made its way onto the Internet and I’m actually looking forward to hearing the whole thing after this little tease! Britney has veered paths from her typical dance pop singles that she’s been releasing a whole lot of over the last few years and has opted for a 90′s hip hop flare this time around! A nice little change of course if you ask me! But as always, I shall reserve judgement until I hear the song in full….

New Music: Giorgio Moroder Ft. Britney Spears – Tom’s Diner

Giorgio Moroder’sBritney Spears collaboration (a dance remake of Suzan Vega’s 1980 hit “Tom’s Diner“) is making it’s way around the Internet! I really had high hopes for this one and thought it would a perfect song for Brit and Moroder to rework together but after hearing the final product, I’m sad to say I’m left a little disappointed. Britney completely missed the mark on the vocals by completely cheesified the song stylistically in a “Hit Me Baby One More Time” type of way. What made “Tom’s Diner” so popular in the first place was the fact that it was so raw and simplistic. I guess some songs are just not meant to be Britney-fide!

Britney Spears Un-Autotuned ‘Alien’ Vocals Surface Online…

by: Taj | July 8th, 2014

It’s no secret that Britney Spears is no powerhouse vocalist, but this week an un-autotuned version of her Britney Jean track “Alien” has surfaced online casting a firestorm of Internet chatter from both fans and haters!! Of course her haters are eating up this rough vocal, siting it as evidence that her pop-princess status is a sham! Meanwhile fans are coming to her defense excuses to justify this controversial ‘raw’ vocal! One of her most famous fans that has come to her defense is William Orbit, the producer of the song himself!! William took to his Facebook page and had this to say about the mysterious leak (or scam);

“Dearest Music Lovers, I have heard that Britney vocal link that everybody’s been discussing. It has been impossible not to as there have been many comments directing my attention to it. [I won’t re-posting it here]. I’d like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up. 

Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warmups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.

A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.

I think that 99% of you reading this will totally understand. 

Whomever put this on the internet must have done so in a spirit of unkindness, but it can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond Stellar! She is magnificent! And that’s that.” 

It’s hard to really tell wether this is actually a real un-autotuned vocal or if it is an Internet hoax (though William never denied it) which we have all fallen victim to in the past… But it’s definitely raised some speculation and questions. Let us just say that this performance is actually real and this is Britney’s vocal capacity. Would it really change your opinion about the pop icon? I want to hear from you! Sound off in the comments section…

Remix Treatment: Britney Spears – Tik Tik Boom (Official Remixes)

by: Taj | February 8th, 2014

The Britney Spears promotion machine seems to be plowing full speed ahead trying to . Just a few weeks ago they gave us an official remix package for her song “It Should Be Easy” and just last night they gave us ANOTHER remix package for her album track “Tik Tik Boom“. This should make a lot of Britney stans very happy since the song has been a hands down fan favorite since day 1. After first listen I’m leaning towards the Sebastian Bronk remix but I want to hear from you… Which one are you feeling??

Remix Treatment: Britney Spears – Body Ache (Dave Aude Remix)

by: Taj | January 30th, 2014

Have you guys all heard of the new music purchasing website called Legitmix? It’s a site that up and coming producers as well as established big names can sell their original productions and unreleased or bootleg remixes! The site works on a loophole in which it requires you to purchase the original version of the remixed song from iTunes as a package deal with the bootleg version. That way, the artist’s label is getting it’s fair cut as well as the producer who remixed the song. Yeah you might be paying a little more for the track, but I personally don’t mind paying $2 or $3 for an unreleased gem!

Take for example this just released Dave Aude remix of the Britney Jean track “Body Ache” by Britney Spears! Mr. Aude just released his Brit new remix which is loads better than any of the mixes on her currently released remix package for “It Should Be Easy“. Take a listen of this preview and feel free to head on over to Legitmix.com to purchase your own copy of this ‘unofficial’ remix!

New Music: Britney Spears – Alien (Produced By William Orbit)

by: Taj | November 18th, 2013

The much anticipated William Orbit track off of Britney Spears’ forthcoming album has finally leaked and while “Alien” is a pretty decent song, I don’t think it’s as out of this world as the hype promised. The mid-tempo pop ditty is neither the best I’ve heard from Britney or Orbit! I think what makes this track stand out is that Britney’s vocals aren’t as auto-tuned as usual. As a matter of fact, William Orbit recently bragged that she required no auto-tuning at all on this track… Just a producer that “knows how to make a singer sing great“. Super-fans now can cling tightly to this song when they need something to reference while defending Britney’s vocal abilities in their online stan wars! What do you think of “Alien“?

New Music: Britney Spears – Perfume

by: Taj | November 4th, 2013

So at first listen, I’m not really feeling the new Britney Spears song “Perfume“. I can appreciate she’s breaking the dance-pop mold she’s been stuck in with a ballad. And I actually can even appreciate the Sia penned lyrics/melody… I’m just not feeling Mrs. Spears singing it. I feel like I will like it a whole lot more when I hear the Sia demo as I often do with her hand me down songs. It might end up being a grower but as for now it’s definitely not a shower! What do you guys think of “Perfume“?
