i feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
spotlight on me and i’m ready to break
i’m like a performer the dance floor is my stage
better be ready hope that you feel the same
all eyes on me i’m in the center of the ring just like a circus
when i crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip just like a circus
don’t stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
everybody let go we can make a dance floor just like a circus
circus | britney spears (2008)
britney’s back with her sixth studio album. although it’s been only 14 months since her previous album “blackout” was released, which did not get much attention due to her train-wreck situation and almost no promotion for the album at all. however blackout is quite a good album. it’s sold roughly 3.1 million copies worldword and won “album of the year” at the mtv europe music awards 2008.
anyway britney is back once again to reclaim her throne with the first single, “womanizer” which became her first number one single on the billboard hot 100 since her debut “…baby one more time”
the overall of “circus” is considerably great, very catchy, very addictive. the song “circus” which already took the #1 download spot on itunes on december 4, is scheduled to release as the second single on december 9, 2008. many tracks have the potential to be cut as next single, such as “kill the light”, “shattered glass”, “if you seek amy”, and “mannequin”. i hope she’d cut “shattered glass” as her next single, and flush all the low-tempo songs off the list. britney spears is a super product of music industry.
