“Till The World Ends (Remix)” – Britney Spears Feat. Nicki Minaj & Ke$ha

So I’m not sure if this is THE official remix, but it’s definitely AN official remix… The bridge part is kinda crazy awesome but the rest of it I’m mildly unsure of. It just seems kind of pointless. It’s the same song with random parts that are changed – Ke$ha sings part of the chorus and it’s just so auto-tuned and pointless that it may as well have been Britney. I don’t get it. Am I gonna listen to it though? Yea. Yea, I am.

So I just posted a Bollywood remix of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, and I really loved it (hope you did too..). Now, it gets better! Britney goes Bollywood! The group of Indian DJs, Desihits, remixed “Till The World Ends” and it’s sooo awesome. Culture Shock is a perfect way to describe the song. It’s Indian + club + hints of dubstep + Britney… ahh! Take a trip to the beauty that is Bollywood music…

Um.. ok. I don’t know what to say. This is probs her hottest video since “I’m A Slave For You”. She looks absolutely stunningly sexy, and is actually dancing a bit – so hot! But… I can’t stand videos about the end of the world. Way to give us hope, guys. The end doesn’t even make up for how scary the rest of the video is. I don’t know. On one hand – work. On another – that’s effing scary, what’s wrong with you? Ugh. …work.

UPDATE: Check out this awesome 8Barz remix of “Till The World Ends”. Nice!

 

P.S. This is turning into a Britney Spears blog, isn’t it?

“Till The World Ends (Doctor Rosen Rosen Remix)” – Britney Spears

Woah! What a trip. “Till The World Ends” is currently my fave song, I think it’s so amazing. Dr. Rosen Rosen remixed it and made it cuhrazy. He completely 180’ed the song and made it dark, twisted. It’s avant-garde “rogue pop” with a haunting choir. If you like “Till The World Ends”, definitely check out this eerie remix. Even if you don’t like it, you may like this one because it’s so different. But do what you want, you know?

ALBUM REVIEW: Femme Fatale – Britney Spears
March 29, 2011, 6:45 pm
Filed under: Album Review, Electronic, Pop Music | Tags:

Happy Britney Day!!!

I was horrifyingly disappointed that I couldn’t buy a physical copy today of Britney’s new album, Femme Fatale, as it was only released on iTunes this morning. Stupid iTunes. This album is quite awesome in many aspects, but I have to say I’m ever-so-not-want-to-admittingly disappointed.

All the songs are pop perfrction, without a doubt. They perfectly harness new sounds and technology while also keeping that classic Britney sound. Same goes for lyricism and production – great blend of today’s sound (thanks Dr. Luke & Max Martin) with Britney’s traditional epic pop diva sound (especially on the will.i.am track). Luckily, I wasn’t expecting any vocally challenging material, so I wasn’t let down at all by that. I mean, it’s Britney, c’mon. We love her for what she gives us. Overall, I’m happy about it. I love Britney, and drool over getting to hear new material by her. I can’t really pick favorites at this point, although I am thoroughly smitten with “Till The World Ends”. I need a couple weeks to really digest and obsess over the album to get a better feel for it. “Trouble For Me” and “Up ‘N Down” are sick techno-ey tracks, and I also love the slow, electronic beat on “Inside Out”. “Don’t Keep Me Waiting” is a bit heavier, and I really am smitten with its edgy feel. “Criminal” is also an incredible midtempo song. The whole album is definitely a more electro feel than Britney has ever pursued, which is really where pop music is heading, so good for her. However, “Baby One More Time” used real instrumentation and was a smash beyond belief… Which leads me to the disappointment.

The whole album feels like an icy surface to me. There is NO depth – you can barely scratch the surface of it. As much as I love Britney, I feel like she never exposes any real depth to herself. Everyone that reads my blog knows I’m a huge pop music junkie and love listening to brain-melting, simple, stupid songs, because they’re fun. I guess since I’m such a big Brit-head I was just looking for a little something MORE out of her. More variety, more emotion, more depth, I don’t know. Just more.

With that being said, the songs are sooo catchy and fun and I really do LOVE them. In true Britney style, she has captivated me with her hypnotizing, danceable songs that I want to scream the lyrics to. I’m really impressed by the A+ production – there’s such cool sounds that differ with each track, like whistling and bubbles (“How I Roll”.. such a cool song!). The hooks are repetitive but amazing.. So while I am very happy about the album, I guess I just set my expectations way too high. Truth is, she’ll never be “Baby One More Time” Britney again, and I deal with change very badly. I need to take a deep breath and embrace the new, more mature Britney. It cuts me DEEP!

On the brainless pop scale of Ke$ha to Taylor Swift, this album falls on a solid Katy Perry. Britney does always manage to be clever, and Femme Fatale is certainly packed with suggestive double entendres. I feel like I’m in a bad mood today and would give a different review if it was warmer out. That’s probably defying the cardinal rule of journalism, but maybe I’m the Ke$ha of journalism. Nah, I’d give myself a solid Katy Perry as well. I guess all I can say is it’s easy to let disappointments get the best of you, even when something really good is right in front of your face. So, congrats on a not-epic-but-still-amazing album, Britney! How does she keep me so loyal?! Ugh LOVE HER!

Holy Hawtness! This is beyond beyond bed bath and BEYOND! Extravagant amounts of hottness, divas, and glamor. 3 fierce club bangers crammed into one beautiful mashup by Robin Skouteris: Britney’s “Hold It Against Me”, Rihanna’s “S&M”, and JLo’s “On The Floor”. This video is jam-packed with girl power and sexualness. These 3 girls WORK together. This is a MUST listen.

…WORK.

“Til’ The World Ends” – Britney Spears

Ew! I can’t believe I’m posting this one day late! THE HORROR!

Do I even need to talk about this? It’s an amazing pop song from the most amazing pop singer, Buh-RITNEY. The chorus is one of those yell-it-in-a-crowd choruses. Does that even make sense? Just listen and enjoy. The only complaint I have is – what are all these songs about the end of the world? Stop! It’s not gonna end! Come on.

P.S. To Professor Neill who assigned “reading Jill’s blog” for this weekend’s homework, thanks for the extra 15 views! Lawl. True story..

MUSIC VIDEO: “Hold It Against Me” – Britney Spears

THAT IS EFFING HAAAAAAWWTTTTT!!!!!!!! Damnit I love her. This music video was SUUUPER hyped up (cause its BRITNEY) and because it was directed by Jonas Akerlund, who directed Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”. Honestly it’s nothing like “Telephone” but it is HOT. I expected more dancing since she was working with her old choreographer, but the choreographer blamed the editing, saying they didn’t include much of the dancing. Either way, she looks smokin’ in this video and I LOVE the visuals! There’s amazing visuals including neon colors, cool shots/angles, and really cheesy/blatant  advertisements. I was expecting something that was literally EPIC since the song is, but it’s not as epic as her past videos. Still. Hot.

P.S. The video probs wont play on this page, so just click on the video to watch it on the devil Vevo.

Jillboard Choice Remixes: “Hold It Against Me” – Britney Spears
January 28, 2011, 9:10 pm

As a MASSIVE Britney supporter and a HUGE fan of “Hold It Against Me”, I found it only imperative to post the remixes I have found to be extremely interesting (SO FAR). Don’t Hold It Against Me if I post even more remixes of this song in the future, as I’m almost positive that I will. Britney is probably the only person I would get starstruck by, but I welcome the challenge..

All of these are really great, creative remixes, some uptempo, some chill. Though impressive, I don’t think any of these are as good as the original. Sorry doods.

The first is a remix by MasterKidz, the DJ’s who hold the current “Best Remix Ever” crown on Jillboard (click here for the crown-holder). It’s a nice house/electro remix of ze Queen’s new single.

“Hold It Against Me (MazterKidz House Remix)” – (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

The second is an AWESOME version by Meghan Tonjes, recent YouTube sensation featured on Ellen. She’s disgustingly talented, it’s intimidating. She mashes up “Hold It Against Me” with Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”, using only her incredible vocals, guitar playing, & tapping into the mic. She’s awesome.

The third is a chill, piano ballad interpretation of the song by YouTube talent, Pianistmiri. Sooo impressive!

Last but not least is a mashup by Kap Slap, called “Touch Your Arms Against Me”. It mashes “Hold It Against Me” with “The Bad Touch” & “I Just Died In Your Arms”. It works so surprisingly well, it’s almost shocking. Love it. Thanks for the suggestion Me-Aygen (you know who you are..)

I apologize if you’re not feeling this Britney dubstep movement, but you’re generally alone on that one. I ain’t over it.
