Oops….Britney Jean Spears done did it again, y’all.
With just a click of her fabulous heel steps, the legendary reigning Vegas queen just turned the world on its axis all while snatching the summer groove crown with the release of her oh, so steamy new single, “Make Me”(Ooh).” First of all, that cover. Second of all, the bedroom ready headboard breaker was cooked up by UK music producer BURNS (Rihanna, Calvin Harris ), while co-penmanship is credited to Spears herself. Yas.
It’s no secret that Spears’ new single had a wee bit of trouble getting released into the mainstream music wild due to “production troubles,” which in turn also kept any details about her upcoming ninth studio album (tentatively titled ‘B9,’ or as we’ll most likely be calling it Private Show) under wraps.
But now, here we are and she’s certainly done it again as everyone is buzzing about Britney’s sexy new musical direction…which just might be her most interesting one yet. So, here are 5 reasons why we’re certainly more than ready for whatever the legendary Ms. Britney Spears is about to unleash upon us very, very soon.
1.Because “Make Me(Ooh)” is god damn everything….. In case you haven’t heard, Britney’s new single is summer music truth. Although a far cry from her EDM soaked dance-pop, Spears delivers raw, real vocals on top of a coo-ey sex groove that is sliced by a fiery guest spot by red-hot rapper, G-Eazy. There’s no denying that Britney isn’t the best vocalist in the world, but she knocks it out of the park mostly because her vocals don’t nearly sound as processed as they usually do–it’s a nice treat, indeed. Plus, the line “raise my roof” is classic and it’s now ahead of Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” on the iTunes 100. Enough said.
2.Have you seen Ms. bitch lately? Not that we ever want to go back in time, but Britney has certainly come a long her way from her crazy head shaving days of yester-Spears. It seems that ever since ’07 (#neverforget), our girl has kept on an incredible transformation road, which has made her the legendary the pop diva she will now always be. However, looking at how f#$king fierce she looked during her performance medley at this past May’s Billboard Music Awards, and how she sick she looks in both the just released commercial for her new fragrance Private Show and the leaked clips from the “Make Me” video, this bitch has never looked better….seriously. We’re ready, gurl.
3.Shes about to take the current sex jam diva trend to a whole new kind of level… If you haven’t noticed lately, our current radio divas are getting a little more sexually feisty with their latest offerings. First, Ms. Grande set things off with the sex-scorned anthems on her latest set, Dangerous Woman, especially with the (literally) stripped down title track. Ms. Demi Lovato is also taking it all off in her delicious new track, “Body Say,” and now it looks as if Britney is headed in the grimy, gritty sex jam direction.
Much like we’ve seen with the R&B laced Blackout and the dance floor ready material on Femme Fatale, Britney knows how to take a music trend and run with it, so you know her and her team of producers (this is Britney here, she needs helps sometimes..it’s all good) are about to take all of us and all pf those other girls up into the sex jam bedroom and show them how it’s done.
4.Because we can finally move on from “Pretty Girls”… Hard to believe that it’s only been a year since the “Pretty Girls” disaster, but it certainly feels longer because it took so long for new Britney music to smooch our headphones. And while we all know the story of why the song didn’t do so well (all Ms. Azaelea, of course), we can finally move on with our lives, because you know you played it just to remember the last thing we got from the diva. “Make Me” is certainly a more pleasant solution to our new Britney music problems, and now we can finally wash away the memory of “Pretty Girls” forever. It’s time to say goodbye.
5.Because we’re just like, so ready for the new album. Get it, get it, Brit Brit…we’re waiting.
