Britney Spears feat. Ke$ha & Nicki Minaj — “Till The World Ends” Remix
Is this a ploy to get the song to hit #1 on the Hot 100, much like with what happened with Rihanna’s Brit-assisted mix of “S&M”? We don’t know, nor care. We just love that these three artists (who now feature countdown tickers on their respective websites) share space on the same track. The sizzurp-slurping opening sets the tone, and provides a great backdrop for Nicki to try on half a dozen different vocal tricks and accents in her verse. Ke$ha adds a slightly whiny twist to the chorus, making it sound as if TTWE could have been written for her — though we prefer Britney’s version.
Is the remix what you’d hoped from three of the biggest stars in pop?
