Acting as a judge on The X-Factor put the Queen of Pop back on the map for a new generation, and now Britney Spears has released what she's calling her most personal album yet. Find out more in Kidzworld's album review of Britney Jean!

Britney Jean

In a personal letter to fans posted on her site, Britney Spears told us that she was hoping this album would tap into some new areas of her life - she certainly has been through a lot in the last few years! As she says in the letter: 

"I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to...I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears. I am a performer. I am a Mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean."

Funnily enough though, the album doesn't seem very personal, instead it's full of club-ready dance songs (so she may have succeeded on finding something for everyone.) The album was largely co-written by her "Scream & Shout" duet partner Will.I.Am, and it shows. Many of the breakdowns and beats will remind you of all of the Black Eyed Peas' hits of the last two years, and he gets a little help from David Guetta stepping up the electronic beats on there. Britney's voice has always had a signature Louisian a twang, that's harder to detect on this record over the hard dance beats - in fact on the first single "Work B**ch" it seems like she's dropped the pitch and twang in her singing voice altogether - but for a catchy spitfire-like effect that makes the song instantly stick in your mind.

Like any Britney album, there are some stand out songs. "Perfume" seems like the most personal, it's a ballad wondering if her boyfriend pines for his ex-girlfriend, and her raw vocals on the track make it stand apart from the rest of the collection. "Alien," the mid-tempo track that opens the album, is one of the strongest tracks, and seems like the song that most closely touches on the drama in her life in the last few years. "Chillin With You," a duet with her sister Jamie Lynn, has to win the award for the weirdest track on the album, we recommend just straight up skipping that one! All in all, if you love to dance and you're a die-hard Britney fan, this album is for you, but we hope that the Queen of Pop has a few more cards up her sleeve for the next album.
