Britney has always been such a pop weathervane and the move to EDM and europop has been no exception. Indeed it is even one of the places where she exceeds expectations rather than merely being window dressing for the song itself. Till The World Ends earns every cintilla of the nihilism it exhibits. The beats are strong but almost soulless, but the background here is more Bad Moon Rising than Genie in a Bottle. Fortunately, the production is slick enough that you wanna keep on dancing until the world ends.
Coming up: #96 - "First class - sittin' next to Vanna White"
