Britney Spears started her career at the age of 16 in 1998 . Her music became the definitive sound of teen pop. Her star faded amid tabloid headlines, but, defying the odds, she returned in 2007 to become as big of a pop star as she had been before with some of the best music of her career.
This single introduced Britney to pop music fans around the world. Produced by pop mastermind Max Martin, the song is full of hooks and a big mainstream pop sound. The accompanying schoolgirl video caused a sensation, and, when the single hit #1, Britney was assured of stardom.
This hit helped prove Britney could still put together stirring and original music six years after her first appearance. The song is a killer dance track with a James Bond adventure movie feel. "Toxic" deservedly brought Britney Spears back to the pop top 10 for the first time in four years.
Britney Spears hit #1 on the pop singles chart with "Womanizer." It was her first trip to the top since the first single "...Baby One More Time." It's a good song, and will stick in your mind the very first time. It is accompanied by arguably the best music video of Britney's career.
Here Britney Spears takes on the paparazzi directly, and she is taking no prisoners. After listening to this, if you still want a piece of her, you are more brave than most of us.
The title song of the Circus album proved that "Womanizer" was no fluke. It also cemented Britney Spears' return to membership among the elite pop musicians of today. It seems that Britney Spears is here to stay.
