As it seems is the trend for songs these days, Britney Spears' new single "Till the World Ends" leaked late today. It's the second single from her Femme Fatale album, which is due out in stores March 29, and none other than Ke$ha helped out with the lyrics.
People are going wild for it. Perez Hilton said it's "one of the best songs of Britney Spears' career!!!!" and called it "ear porn," which sounds really wrong, but he definitely loves it. Twitter is going mad with fans raving about it, and nearly everyone agrees it's much stronger than the first song to leak -- "Hold It Against Me" (except Lady Gaga fans who just think all of it sucks).
Listen to it after the jump, and see what you think:
Catchy, and not as corny as one might expect with Ke$ha's help. I can definitely see packed nightclubs thumping along to the beat. There are a few more oh oh oh oh oh ohs than I'd like to hear, but overall mission accomplished in creating a dope dance tune with lyrics worthy of an anthem for party-goers around the world:
I can't take it take it take no more/ Never felt like felt like this before/ Come on get me get me on the floor/ DJ, what you what you waiting for?
See the sunlight/ We ain't stopping/ Keep on dancing till the world ends/ If you feel it/ Let it happen/ Keep on dancing till the world ends
I have no doubt it will get people dancing, but it will be interesting to see if Spears herself has it together enough to pull off a successful tour. As the Los Angeles Times points out, while Britney's Circus album was a success, she was criticized for not bringing enough energy and the amazing choreography for which she was once known to that tour.
We'll get a first glimpse of what she's got when she performs a live concert in San Francisco on March 29 for Good Morning America. If what we've heard so far is any indication, she may really be back this time.
What do you think of "Till the World Ends"?
