I've never been a huge fan of Britney Spears. For every amazing "Toxic" or "Slave 4 U" there's a terrible "Outrageous" or "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" and her early years are too bubblegum for me (says the man who just last week was addicted to Aqua and Bardot) and am not a fan of her albums give or take the occasional great single choice ("Overprotected" and the aforementioned "Toxic" and "Slave 4 U"). Needless to say I haven't been one of the people foaming at the mouth of new Britney tracks - especially when every day there are new pictures of her abandoning her children (and when she has them she's dangling cigarettes in their faces).
But, two tracks leaked today, which you surely have already heard. If not, "Gimme More" is below. "Gimme More" is the good one. "Cold as Fire" is the other (you can find it withing a couple of clicks on the net, surely) and it is the one that's not good. If "Gimme More" is the lead single as they say then, depending on the rest of the album, I guess they could be much worse (like, for instance, "Cold As Fire").
It's interesting to see Britney go back to dancier club-oriented music when she's trying to make a comeback because while the rest of the world likes it America is shit scared of it (see how shitty Madonna's Confessions album did compared to the rest of the world). We'll see if her name can get it over the boundary and into mainstream.
I do love the "It's Britney, bitch!" part at the start. Don't you?
