It’s time Britney started acting like Madonna and work that pop MVP status of hers to good measure.
Here Godney enlists current pop reignmistresses Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj for a new remix of ‘Till The World Ends’, which will be issued to US radios on Monday.
There’s an identical countdown timer set up on Brit, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha‘s official sites. Note: Nicki‘s countdown timer has scrawling down the bottom, “if you feel it let it happen” and Ke$ha’s has “next one on my hitlist”! Gurl, we already know. We already know.
The original single mix is already flawless in my opinion but Team Britney‘s not gonna sit around playing Angry Birds while they see it stall on the charts. The instant anthem should’ve slain and ended careers already by now but for whatever reason, it hasn’t. So to help inject a little more interest in the track, they’ve slapped the song’s co-writer Ke$ha on the chorus and introduced a Nicki Minaj rap. It’s all timely because Nicki herself is gonna be supporting Brit on her Femme Fatale tour.
The new version is by no means your typical 15-minute copy, paste and extend loop job. Producers Dream Machine and Dr Luke have put it through some mild rinse acid dub step wash, especially in the all crucial start of the song where people usually tune in to hear the difference.
Notice the scratching of the line “sicker than the remix” to “this is the remix”? Hat tip.
Take a listen and tell me if it’s sick’ning enough for your taste:
Feed Limmy verdict: Bounce snap.
Mighty snap = this is a hit.
Bounce snap = instantly likeable.
Lightbulb snap = you will need a moment to get into this.
Nonchalant snap = need I say more?
No snap = please cease and decease.
Stay tuned for word from Sony Music Australia about whether Aussie radios will also be treated to this new remix of ‘Till The World Ends’.
