Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” hits the air

September 26, 2008

britney1.jpgBritney Spears is making her comeback — again. First step: release a catchy single. And so, on Friday Britney’s song “Womanizer” finally hit airwaves, four days after its scheduled release and a week after a snippet was leaked.
    
The song is an upbeat if slightly repetitive electropop number lasting about 3:40. It comes off Spears’ album “Circus,” which is set to be released on her 27th birthday on Dec. 2. The song was produced by The Outsyders, a group based in Atlanta.
    
It has lyrics that include: “You say I’m crazy/ I got your crazy/You’re nothing but a womanizer” In the song’s chorus, Britney sings, “Boy, don’t try to front/I-I know just-just what you are/Womanizer, you’re a womanizer, baby.”
    
It remains to be seen what Britney’s fans think of the song, but it’s definitely catchy. In a snap judgment, the Los Angeles Times music blog Soundboard reached the conclusion that “Britney is back. She actually seems to be awake this time.”

britney2.jpgLast year in late August, Britney released a song, “Gimme More,” which was also billed as a “comeback” tunes after months of Britney finding herself making headlines for erratic behavior. At that time, she was embroiled in a bitter custody battle over her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

She sang “Gimme More” at the MTV Video Music Awards in September ’07, but was  panned by fans and critics. By January of this year, she found herself in a Los Angeles-area hospital under psychiatric evaluation.

But since February, after her father and lawyers took control of her affairs, Britney has seemed to be on the mend. In fact, at this year’s MTV VMAs, Britney won three awards for her song, “Piece of Me.”

So one wonders: could this “comeback” be the real deal.

Womanizer..hmmmmm?, Just how many time does she repeat that word in the song, doesn’t take much talent for that, I’m sorry but this song is a Huge flop.

OmFgosh this is one of britney’s best, everyone wanted a piece of radar, and ooh ooh baby from blackout, well this song showcases both those tracks, plus a lil bit of toxic… this is a definate hit. At first I was a bit skeptical of the song, I was like, there could have been a “better” comeback single, but after listening to it after about the 2nd or 3rd time, it sunk in, pretty quickly. I love it so much, i must have played it 500 times today lol britney’s music is so addicting and i just love it! I cannot wait for the video. This is sure to be a number 1. I also cannot wait for the performance that I have anticipated so long to see from britney. I know it will rock! Go Britney, you are a true legend. Nothing can keep you down.

You’ve got to be kidding. I heard the song on the radio yesterday and had to change the station. Talk about lame. It’s one word sung on one note, over and over. The verse wasn’t bad but if I heard the word “womanizer” one more time… Awful.

 

omg. shes backkk i love her soo much… go britney!~!!!!

im not like a Brittany hater or anything so its not like that but this new song she put out honestly makes me never wanna turn my radio back on again in fear that her low raspy voice paired with upbeat electronic music will make my ear drums pop .
this is a horrible song i hate it and i hope i never have to hear it again .

I love this song, but I’m sure it’s just the beginning of the amazing tracks on her new album. They aren’t going to let us here the best just yet, this is just a tease. She knows how to work it…. she is gonna blow our minds.

Regardless what Britney Spears does at this stage, anything that she does will be an incentive and Womanizer is an inevitable hit and will be very successful!

Well done Britney, your on the road to recovery :-)

 

I knew Britney would make it! I love her and wish her all the best with her new album. Her song is SICK!!!

 

I, personally wish the best for her. The world is a tough enough, let alone to have enemies. God loves all of us enough that He gave his only Son to die for the sins of all of us. Trust Him and tell His so.
