For the past seven months, Britney Spears has been extremely busy bringing her wildly suc¬cessful “Circus” tour to cities around the world. The tour has become the third-highest grossing tour of 2009 worldwide, grossing over $75 million within the first 48 shows. She must have not been too busy, however, to deliver another soon-to-be smash hit. Her brand new song, titled “3,” hit radios Tuesday, and has been getting a crazy response so far.
The quirky and sexual lyrics (the song is about having a three¬some) inspire a march of sorts when Britney sings, “1, 2, 3/Not only you and me/Got 180 degrees and I’m caught in between/ Countin’ 1, 2, 3/Peter, Paul, and Mary.” The track, produced by pop-producing powerhouse Max Martin, is club-ready with a pounding bass line, an irresistible chorus and Britney’s signature candy-coated vocals.
“3” is a part of “The Singles Collection,” which will be released on November 24, 2009. This collection of Britney’s hits will be available two edi¬tions. The standard con¬tains 17 of her singles all on one disc. The Ultimate Fan Box Set includes 29 songs with each disc.
