"In the Zone"

Watching Britney Mature Into Adulthood In In The Zone

After dabbling with songs with overt sexual overtones in her previous album Britney, her fourth studio album In the Zone was quite refreshing to hear as Britney Spears decided to add more milieu to what she usually offers, coming up with probably her most exciting work since her debut album, Baby One More Time. Since that highly successful debut album in 1999 all the way to 2003, when she released In the Zone, Britney worked tirelessly through four studio albums, so her prodigious output in that very narrow time period would’ve made her music tired and redundant. However, I do not hear that in this album. By working with different producers, Britney was able to coax from them different textures of pop ranging from electropop to dancehall, from trip hop to hip hop. The album is an interesting listening pleasure because in that short time from Baby One More Time, I can hear the maturing of Britney, and in this album, she can already handle adult-themed songs about sex and desire and pleasing oneself without the self-consciousness that a teenager would often feel when singing about these songs. The album’s title was very apt for Britney at this point in her career. She was definitely In the Zone when recording this album. This was probably the most confident she ever was in terms of her vocal delivery and just her voice, sans all the electronic disfigurations it was going to undergo in some of her later albums.

Britney drives all negative vibes from a failed relationship by creating world class album ‘In the Zone’

Britney Spears has always shone a light of promise from the second she picked up a microphone to record her first album and it is quite evident that she is an embodiment of potentials. Britney is a fast rising singer who works on each successive album with the promise of getting better. The songstress displays spontaneity in the music industry as she forges well kneaded songs out of the blues. Sadly in 2002, Britney’s relationship with lover and fellow singer, Justin Timberlake, came to a mysterious end. She decided to heal her broken heart and snap out of her misery by working on a new album. In the Zone is a wonderful masterpiece created by the amazing nightingale. The fourth studio album of the American singer was released on the 12th of November, 2013 by her record label, Jive records. Tentation had a key role in the making of this album as Britney went on an experiment spree collaborating with many producers during the initial making of the album and trying their sounds to see which tone best fits her dream album. The album embodies several music genres which includes reggae, hip hop, house and dance. Heavy musical instruments used to make good symphony in the album include guitars, drums and synthesizers. Expatriates were involved in the making of the album In the Zone. Some of the big shots involved in the album production are R Kelly, Trixster, Avant, Moby, The Matrix and a host of others. Upon release, In the Zone was lauded by high profile critics who were stunned by the exceptional work of art Britney put out. They were amazed by the way Britney could merge different genres together to make the classic album. In the Zone debuted top of the chart in the United States and France thereby making it an international success. Britney made history in music with her fourth album as she became the first female artist to have four consecutive number-one-albums.
