On June 15, 2017, at the MOA Arena, Britney Spears will, at last, perform in front of the Filipino crowd, for the first time ever! And I’m very much excited I keep on talking about her for the past few days! I still can’t believe it, the announcement was just made months ago and now, I’m just two days away from her concert! Forgive me, but I am just so much thrilled and overwhelmed!
To celebrate her upcoming concert, I have listed some Britney-related stuff below that I personally picked. Ranging from my most favorite Britney Album, videos and collaborations, to the worst ones. These are just my personal choices and doesn’t mean it has to be yours, too. :p
Top 5 least favorite Albums:
- Britney Jean
- Oops!… I Did It Again
Top 5 Favorite Albums
- In The Zone
- Femme Fatale
- …Baby One More Time
Britney has only had 9 studio albums so far, so her recent album, Glory, is the midpoint of all her albums, for me. Blackout is really a good album, I just don’t get why a lot of people love it. Yes, it is a game-changer but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is the greatest. In The Zone is the best for me since it has one of her best collaborations with Madonna and the Ying Yang Twins. The music is also perfection, for me In The Zone showed Britney’s identity and edge above all the other artists, and the songs are very ahead of its time, very innovative! With the top 5 albums that I chose, I don’t have any song that I can skip to, but the least 5 ones, I always have some songs to skip.
Top 5 least favorite Videos
- Make Me
- Gimme More
- Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know
- I Wanna Go
Top 5 favorite Videos
- Me Against The Music
- Till The World Ends
- I’m A Slave 4 U
- Work B*tch
The Britney Army knows Make Me is one of the worst videos, since we were expecting an iconic one from David LaChapelle but we were given an audition video instead. Same with Gimme More, I was expecting “more” from it. Britney Spears is known for her huge dance moves and group choreography, it made me her fan and the top 5 videos I chose perfectly symbolize what a perfect “Britney” video is; lots of dancers, jaw-dropping dance breaks, chilling dance beats, amazing production. It’s not about just moving your hips or banging your head or whatever, these videos show REAL CHOREOGRAPHY that no other artist could! On the other hand, I Wanna Go is a mess, very much overrated, and the other two doesn’t fit her image very very well, very forgettable.
Top 5 Collaborations
- Me Against The Music feat. Madonna
- S&M Rhimix with Rihanna
- Slumber Party feat. Tinashe
- Boys (Co-ed Remix) feat. Pharrell Williams
- Scream & Shout with will.i.am
Since she only has few collaborations, I listed the top 5 I like the most. I’m not really a huge fan of Scream & Shout but thanks to this song, and will.i.am, it helped Britney maintain her relevance among her target audience. Boys is a classic bop! It isn’t a fan favorite but for me, the longer I listen to it, the more I’m liking it; it’s a grower! Slumber Party and S&M is classic Britney! Girl power at its finest with sexy vocals and dancing, REAL DANCING. However, Me Against The Music is the ultimate collaboration with the queen herself, Madonna! How can you turn down such song, amazing beat, awesome melody, it is definitely a perfect song!
Well, I am not asking you all to agree with me, as mentioned, these are personal choices, but maybe this list may help you change your preferences hehe :p. It is definitely advisable to listen to these amazing music as her concert is nearing to feel more excited and ecstatic! Personally, I haven’t listened to any other artist since I bought her concert ticket. I have this playlist in my phone called “THE ULTIMATE BRITNEY PLAYLIST” including all her songs from her catalog, remixes that I have and unreleased stuff that I have, as well. Nostalgic and overwhelming at the same time, this is really recommended to all the fans seeing her this Thursday! Try it and fill yourself with “Britney-energy” before the concert starts!
