#NEWMUSIC: STREAM IN FULL BRITNEY SPEARS’ “BRITNEY JEAN” ALBUM
With its release only a week away, Britney Spears’ eighth Studio Disc BRITNEY JEAN promises to be the Pop Icon’s most personal Album to date. With a total ten Tracks, boasting Collaborations with the likes of will.i.am (The Black Eyed Peas), Sebastian Ingrossi (Swedish House Mafia), Sia, Katy Perry and Toronto’s Richard Vission, the Disc ventures emotionally into darker territory. Its sound ventures deeper into Electronica/House, with Spears continuously taking risks to stay ahead of the curve.
After piquing our interest with first Single Work Bitch, Followup Perfume was a bit of a Headscratcher, I admit. Don’t let that deter you though, It Should Be Easy (ft. will.i.am), Tik Tik Boom (ft. T.I.) and Body Ache positively are hot. Longtime Fans of Spears will miss some of her infectious melodies here with focus placed on Mood, Rhythm and Production. Passenger gives us the slightest semblance of Classic Spears, saved late on the Disc. After much hype, we hear her Collaboration with her younger Sister, Chillin’ With You (ft. Jamie Lynn Spears) which oddly is a hybrid mid-tempo Ballad-meets-Bangerz. Although certainly no Blackout or In the Zone, which in my opinion are Spears at her best, there are a few moments here strong enough to satiate us Fans.
