Miguel Covers Britney

In light of today being the release of Britney Spears seventh studio album Femme Fatale, it only feels right to do a post that is Britney related.

As part of Billboard’s Mash-Up Monday’s, singer Miguel stopped by the studio to give his rendition of the Britney Spears smash “Hold It Against Me.”

Miguel turned the pop song into a smooth soul jam lead by his powerful vocals and a blaring synth. While he did forget some of the lyrics overall he did a good job and I would argue that the song sounds better stripped down like this.

Covering a song is never easy, especially when you are trying to make it your own. Miguel successfully twisted the song into his style, while keeping some of the aspects the public fell in love with.

Poll: ‘Hold It Against Me’

Britney Spears continues to dominate the charts as information concerning the success of ‘Hold It Against Me’ is slowly released. She now holds the record for the most spins in one week with 3,866. Insane.

Not only that, but the song has continued to stay number 1 on itunes, so there is no way it won’t have the number 1 spot on the digital charts. While all signs are pointing to a number 1 debut on the Hot 100, no one will be certain until later in the week. I will say this though, it would be a huge shock if she does not nab the number 1 spot. With all of this early success it only makes sense.

Twitter continues to ring off with all things Continue reading

The Britney Effect

With this blog being a music blog it is hard to deny the force that is Britney Spears right now. While I’ve yet to fully understand where the obessions stems, the fact of the matter is that she is a force to be reckoned with, and she’s shaping up to make a serious impact this year.

I was speaking to guest writer David (read his review now!) about the power that Britney fans seem to have. As an avid reader of blogs, I have seen the anticipation of her new single build over the past few months, primarily in December.

Guest Writer: ‘Hold it Against Me’ – Britney Spears

Written By David

I would like to start off this post by reiterating that I am not a blogger.  I am not a journalist.  I am simply a boy who holds some strong opinions and knows what he likes.  And what I really like is Britney.

The first thing y’all should know is that I am a very particular Britney fan.  Although I’m very opinionated, I’ll be the first to admit when Britney does or releases something I don’t care for. i.e. Her last album, Circus (with the exception of Kill the Lights & Unusual You)  I’m well aware that Britney, like every other pop musician, has her faults.  Hopefully my seemingly Continue reading

Some News!

I’ve been writing this blog since May completely by myself. It’s been hard, but overall rewarding. I decided that it might be interesting to have a guest writer every few weeks so you could hear another voice.

I think it will be a cool way to break things up every now and then and give someone the chance to talk about something I wouldn’t typically cover.
