Britney Jean Gives Spears Her Worst Opening

In: Donovan, Music
britney-jean-sales

First the good news. Britney Spears has the best-selling new album on this week’s Billboard Top 200. The bad news is that Britney Jean debuts at No. 4. Even worse, the 107,000 units sold represents the worst opening bow of the superstar’s career. Even her debut album, …Baby One More Time, sold more in 1999 with 121,000 units. Her previous two studio albums, Circus and Femme Fatale, sold 505,000 and 276,000 copies respectively.

With a Planet Hollywood Vegas residency beginning, the 32-year-old singer won’t have time to tour and promote her new album. The million dollar question is, should she cut her losses or go into overdrive to salvage this era? This bitch just needs to work harder, especially if she wants that Maserati or Lamborghini.

Before we get into the meat of the video, can we discuss the slab of juicy prime beef Britney Spears cozies up to? Yowzers. I think I might have to revisit my 2011 post on Brit’s Top 10 Hottest Music Boy Toys. Model Alexander Kjellevik is pretty dang fine. The scruff, the hair, the abs, it all works. It must’ve been hard work laying that blond head of hers on his ripped stomach. I digress.

Directed by frequent collaborator Joseph Khan, “Perfume” can easily pass as a fragrance ad for one of Spears’ many scents. Girlfriend spritzes herself in hopes that Kjellevik’s girlfriend, Cindy, smells it. I suppose she didn’t mark her territory enough because in the end, poor Brit is left alone. I haven’t seen her act this much since her acting tour de force in the 2002 opus, Crossroads ;) Overall it’s a great clip (albeit simple) for the underrated ballad. Check it out below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

In: Donovan, Music
2013-most-played-music-videos-vevo

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.

With just weeks before her heralded Las Vegas residency begins, Britney Spears made her official arrival at Planet Hollywood earlier this week. It wasn’t as extravagant as Shania Twain arriving on a horse, but there was plenty of fan fare. Lights, cameras, paparazzi, fans, you name it, it was there.

Naturally, the 32-year-old singer is in promotional overdrive to move ticket sales and also copies of her just-released album Britney Jean. She even hinted that she might retire after her two-year residency. Yeah, right. I smell that marketing ploy a mile away ;)

In other Brit-related news, she appears on InStyle magazine’s January cover looking quite lovely wearing a Dior couture gown. Photographer Michelangelo Di Battista snaps the singer for her most “candid interview ever.” Knowing how verbose Brit is, I wonder what classifies as “candid” for the publication. Right?

Spears also released a teaser for her latest single “Perfume.” It uses the official lyric video as the background with footage of the video itself incorporated in. Check it out below.

The day has finally arrived. Britney Jean is available to purchase on iTunes. Already at the stroke of midnight, my FB notifications went crazy with all my Brit-obsessed friends praising their beloved queen. Mission accomplished, I suppose for Spears who calls her latest her “gayest” album to date.

Speaking of gay, Spears recently told Pride Source she gets inspiration for her songs from her gay fans because they’re “somewhat girls…” From anyone else, this could be classified as hate speech, but from Brit, it’s another instance of her not thinking before speaking. Love her, but she’s not a pro when it comes to picking politically correct words.

Jamie Lynn Spears Unveils Debut Music Video

Jamie Lynn Spears surprised everyone by dropping a new single, a country one at that, the other day. What’s even more surprising is that it’s been met with generally a positive response from critics and music lovers alike. In fact, “How Could I Want More” had no problems breaking into iTunes Top 40 chart. Not too shabby for the 22-year-old who left the spotlight as a teenager to raise her daughter Maddie. It’s officially a comeback ya’ll.

It’s no coincidence her debut single coincides with older sis Britney streaming Britney Jean on iTunes. One of the most heavily-anticipated tracks on the album is a duet of Britney and Jamie Lynn. Given the free promotion from this and initial feedback of her single, the younger Spears wasted no time in unveiling the music video. Just like the track, it’s simple and intimate. It shows Jamie Lynn in the recording studio performing with her band. Check it out below.

Britney Spears’ Little Sister Releases Debut Single

In: Donovan, Music

Britney Spears haters take cover. There’s another Spears hoping to conquer the recording industry. Instead of following her sister’s footsteps into pop, Jamie Lynn Spears is going the country route. Not Taylor Swift country-pop either but hardcore twangy country. Hee haw!!!

“I don’t think you just wake up one morning and decide you’re going to sing. It’s something I’ve always done,” she told E!. ”But as a young child, like I said, all that was offered to me. You don’t know how to say, like, ‘Oh, this is what I want for the rest of my life.’ You can’t make those kind of decisions at 10 years old.”

The 22-year-old just released “How Could I Want More” on iTunes. It’s the lead cut off her debut album which she’s still working on. She recently stated her forthcoming LP was her “second baby.” Her first being her now 6-year-old daughter Maddie. At age 16 and a hit show, Zoey 101, under her belt, Jamie Lynn was primed to become Britney’s pop successor, but her teenage pregnancy put her career on hold.

In addition to recording her country track, she makes an appearance on Brit’s new album Britney Jean. The Spears sisters duet on “Chillin With You.” Check out her first single below and see if she has what it takes to be Nashville’s next “IT” girl.

Britney Jean Album Sampler Debuts Online

In: Donovan, Music
britney-jean-album-cover

If you’re a hardcore Britney Spears fan, you’ve undoubtedly noticed several tracks from her new album leaking everywhere including an album sampler featuring 30-second snippets of all the tracks. Instead of flipping out like several musicians have notoriously done so in the past, the “Perfume” singer is taking it all in stride.

On the flip side, executive producer will.i.am isn’t handling the violation so well. To be fair, his frustration is somewhat valid. Imagine if you worked hard on something and the final versions weren’t the ones people were listening to. I can definitely empathize, but it’s not going to stop me from sharing what’s leaked thus far ;)

“IMAGINE: a sponge falls into the pond…it comes out…and it isn’t wet… That’s society as whole right now…#doesntMAKEsense

Everyone has an comment & opinion: but does anyone have the patients/tolerance/compassion/discipline/and time to #understand

The internet Gives you access to EVERYTHING..most people chose to ignore its power & talk about NOTHING.. sponges that don’t get wet #broken” – will.i.am via Twitter

Based on early feedback from diehard fans, the album is getting a lukewarm response. Loyal Brit fans, however, are directing most of the blame to will.i.am for steering their beloved Spears off track. Check out the album below which includes a duet with her younger sister, Jamie Lynn.
