Britney Spears Gives Us A Little Bit More (And It Ain’t Half-Bad)

britab.jpgBritney Spears’ real comeback single makes its way out to the Internet just in time to beat Kanye West and 50 Cent at the “whose-leak-is-bigger-than-who” game. Good thing someone out there had enough sense to prevent her from popping out another weepy phone-call ballad…
ARTIST: Britney Spears
TITLE: “Gimme More”
WEB DEBUT: Aug. 30, 2007

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: “It’s Britney, bitch,” Britney Spears announces at the beginning of her comeback single–right off, a change in attitude from the sad-sack track of hers that leaked last week, thank God. The spunky “Gimme More,” produced by Nate Danjahandz, Hills, is seriously channeling some aerobics-class-worthy club music, with Britney’s voice tweaked into full-on sex-kitten mode–but at the same time, the Casio-keyboard percussion is giving off a serious The Blow vibe to my obviously-indiepop-addled ears. (Although the lyrics to “Gimme More” are, as far as I can fathom, about being famous and wanting some guy’s body, so maybe someone should hook Britney up with Khaela Maricich if only for some writing exercises.) The bottom line: It’s not “Toxic,” but it sure as hell isn’t “Me Against The Music,” either.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Popcrunch has an MP3, although downloading is sloowwww going. Bring a book! Or just try getting it here.

    I file it under “unexpectedly not bad.”

    Because I don’t know my Rhianna from my Fergie, though, I’m presented with the mindfuck of “oh, lots of parts of the new Britney Spears song sound like The Knife.”

    This make me think it might be possible that, somewhere right now, while Brit is whitening her kids’ teeth, she’s blasting Silent Shout.
