Is Britney Spears really ‘In the Zone’? America’s opinion… of course. With more then 600,000 albums sold in her first week she is looking to make a big boom in the music industry again as fans return to Britney for another helping of Britney Mania. Why is Britney so big? People are intrigued by her. People need more of her. She is on so many news/TV shows and do the reporters ever ask her something different? Nope. Does she ever disclose more info. Sometimes. But yet she continues to set fire under everyone. She is America’s artist. She grew up in front of us and turned into a music icon that will become legendary. Will our kids know who she is? Maybe. Will they like her? Probably as much as a 16 year old today likes Madonna.
Now, to address why she is selling millions. Is it publicity. A little. Come on people if she was still in her little hole like she was on her break she wouldn’t amount to anything. But the minute she comes back into the scene people say everything she does is for publicity. NO IT IS JUST THAT THE REPORTERS DON’T LEAVE HER ALONE. People want more Britney. Even if a lot of people don’t admit it…almost everyone has a spot for Britney. When it comes down to it this album is good and that is why it is selling…now factor in how many illegal downloads the CD has had, and the legal ones….factor that all in and Britney is as big as she was with her 1st 2 albums.
Can Britney sing? Yes. She might not be the most talented singer but she can hit notes and has a style a lot of people like. She wouldn’t be a singer if she couldn’t sing. She has her own way of doing it and just because she doesn’t have the range or the pipes of other singers doesn’t mean she can’t sing. Remember Macy Gray? Ricky Martin? Justin Timberlake? They all aren’t the best singers. But they had good music at a time. As for Justin he is still making music that some people like.
So is Britney’s CD good? In my opinion…the best yet. With hit potentials like (I’ve got that) Boom Boom and Toxic this album is sure to produce even more buzz.
Is Britney’s career over? Nah. Look at Madonna, after her first few years everyone said she was over and she is still around. Britney will be here for a while and people will be loyal to her. She is maturing and her music only gets better. Now I’m not saying bubblegum pop is bad….but let’s just say music these days is a lot “hip-hoppier.”
My “In the Zone” rating:
CD – 4.89/5.00
Artist – 5.00/5.00
Future Outlook – Very Good
