"Femme Fatale"

Britney Spears Nears 30 (At This Point in Time of Her Career) Yet Her Music Exudes Total Confidence on her Being A Femme Fatale

Femme Fatale marks Britney Spear’s first album in the ‘teenies’ decade. It comes after three very strong dance albums (at least in my book) – In the Zone, Blackout, and Circus. Just when you thought Britney and her team had run out of ideas, she came roaring back in this new decade (this album was released in 2011), with another set of interesting electropop inspired dance hits. In a way, I could say some of the hits in the album were popular because not only was it used in my Body Jam classes, my dance instructors also used some of the songs in this album in my hip hop dance classes. This showed the deep loyalty and possible appreciation of my local Filipino dance instructors on Britney’s ability to create inspired dance songs. One can also see how very cautious she is with regard to picking the team to create her music. In this album, Dr. Luke and Max Martin were her closest collaborators with both not only choosing the songs to be released as singles from this record, but they continue to propel Britney’s credentials to dance aficionados to a higher ground. What I love about her, at this point in her career, is her renewed level of confidence in herself – after the trials she went through in her personal and professional life. That is clearly indicated in the title of the album Femme Fatale. If people did not buy into the concept of her title, it would’ve flopped miserably, but they did, so this album continued her streak of consecutive #1 albums.

Britney Spears misreads the meaning of Femme Fatale and paints a different character in the minds of her fans.

There are but a few big names in the music industry where their fans are having difficulties to decipher their standpoint. One of such is the breathtaking Britney Spears. She has made her mark in the music industry by recording a handful of albums in the short period she has been active. The singer’s Sixth album Circus received negative comments from critics worldwide and her audience has shown displeasure with her recent level of performance. On March 25, 2011, Jive Records released the seventh studio album of their wonder girl, Britney Spears. Having in mind to create something refreshing, electrifying and at the same time an album that rocks any dance floor, Britney blended dance-pop and electro-pop music genres to do the magic. Femme Fatal was worked on during Britney’s Circus album tour and was the artist’s idea of a rebound album after the blunder her previous album had caused. The songstress collaborated with expert producers and exceptional hit-makers in the industry like Fraser T Smith, Max Martin, Will.i.am and a host of others. Femme Fatale is a French word which portrays the meaning “an attractive and dangerous woman”. The main ideas behind the album are sexual allure, self-control, enchantment, bossiness and not leaving behind, sadness. All ideas were to be incorporated in every song in the album to make every listener feel the in-depth nature of what it is like to be ensnared by a charming yet tyrannical woman. The Showstopper lagged behind in delivering the message to her highly expectant crowd. Femme Fatale suffered several flaws as the singer was found squealing and screeching on almost every track. It is possible she had strained her vocals to see the album come through as her voice was found to be synthetic or robotized. Comparisons between Britney's Femme Fatale and albums from other pop icons like Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift is considered preposterous. My deepest regret is that experienced producers like Will.i.am and Max Martin had their signatures in this mistake of an album. The release of Britney’s Femme Fatale is highly irrelevant if I must add but most of the icon’s fans would fight to the death as they believe and anticipate for her redemption. Clearly, most artistes have bad songs and some terrible albums. In my opinion, after a not-so-going-well album, there’s only one way to back to the top of the charts. It’s not rocket science as all you need do as a singer is to first recuperate, regroup and go back to the drawing table and search deep enough for a muse that will produce a hit rather than repeating a cycle of failures.
