Threesome | Britney Spears New Single!

Britney

Check out the cover of  my girl, living legend, and iconic mama Britney Spears‘ upcoming, new single “3” from her new greatest hits “The Singles Collection” cd. The song is coming out tomorrow actually and I must say I can’t wait to hear new music from her! It’s been ages since “Circus” and now I’m thirsty and I want more. About the single cover,

While I don’t love love love it, I like it enough

It is above and beyond better than any of the single covers or album cover that ever came out from her masterpiece “Blackout”. Besides, I kinda like the bright, 60’s pin up, retro vibe it has going on. Come to think of it, it’s very reminiscent of the visual style from the “Britney” lp.  On the song? well as of right now nothing is know about the subject matter, so I guess we’ll all just have to wait. I’m hoping for a club banger!!! Don’t disappoint me Britney.

Update: Check out a preview of what Digital Spy had to say about the nature of the song.

1. It’s called ‘3’ and it’s a Max Martin production.

2. We won’t beat around the bush – it’s about having a threesome.

3. The chorus, which has more than a hint of the playground chant about it, goes like this: “1-2-3 not only you and me / Got 180 degrees / And I’m caught in between / Counting 1-2-3 feed upon that three / Getting down with repeat / Everybody loves ohhhhh”. The “ohhhhh”, in case you were wondering, is a classic Britney lusty sigh.

4. Britney makes her intentions very clear elsewhere, telling us “living in sin is the new thing” on the bridge and offering this coaxing couplet on the second verse: “Three is a charm, two’s not the same / “I don’t see the harm, so are you game?”

5. Enough already with the lyrics! What does ‘3’ sound like? Well, it’s uptempo, quite electropoppy on the verses and a little bit ravey on the choruses.

6. ‘3’ would fit better on Circus than Blackout – it’s got that slightly cartoony quality that the more recent album sometimes has. The Britney track to which it’s most closely related is probably ‘If U Seek Amy’, though they’re more like second cousins who only see each other at family funerals and weddings than brother and sister.

7. The best bit of the song is the middle 8, on which Max Martin cools things down with some synthetic strings, a load of bassy beats kick in and Britters offers her boyfriend a get-out clause: “If you don’t like the company / Let’s do it just you and me…”

8. …Before promptly changing her mind by suggesting “or three… or four on the floor”. That last bit’s pretty clever, because the beats she’s singing over at the time could legitimately be classified as “four-on-the-floor”.

9. It took us a few plays to fall for ‘3’ – and truth be told it’s no ‘Gimme More’ or ‘Womanizer’ – but as a fun, fruity newbie to round off a potentially brilliant Singles Collection, it does its job very well indeed.

10. It’s premiering on US radio today, so expect to be hearing it very soon. The first UK play, in case you were wondering, will be on Radio 1 this Wednesday afternoon.

xxox,
