Media Previews Tracks From 'Britney Jean' At VIP Listening Party
A few lucky media types and industry insiders got a sneak preview of several Britney Jean tracks last night at will.i.am's Hollywood recording studio. (If I lived in LA, I so would've been there!!!) Britney discussed what the album means to her (along with revealing her in-studio snacks — sushi and Skittles), and attendees listened to tracks "Alien," "Don't Cry," "It Should Be Easy" and "Tik Tik Boom," which some are dubbing third-single material. A snippet of what the Interwebs are saying about last night:
"It's not all party jams on Britney Jean. 'Alien' is a midtempo but powerfull follow-up to 2007's 'Piece of Me' that chronicles Spears' life in the spotlight. "We all have moments in our life where we feel a little alienated," Spears said of her fame. On the chorus, the singer assures listeners that they're 'not alone.'" —MTV.com
"Spears looked fab. Her signature blond hair was down and fell over her shoulders. She wore tight black pants, a sleeveless black shirt and black heels." —E! Online
"Probably the most impressive track of the night was 'Tik Tik Boom' featuring T.I. and produced by Antony Preston – you could definitely see Britney’s face light up during this song as she shook her shoulders; Will.I.Am could not sit still through it." —BreatheHeavy.com
"Britney said that a lot of the songs have to do with the break-up that she experienced this year with longtime love Jason Trawick. Cameras were rolling the whole time — they’re filming a documentary and have been for the past few months." —JustJared.com
Felt great to finally play #BritneyJean for people tonight, not to mention hearing that they loved it! My heart went into this album!
