    "Femme Fatale" was very popular among her fanbase here in Latin America and the singles were her biggest radio hits since "In The Zone" over here.

    The album is indeed very solid and cohesive from start to finish but it was IMO a manipulated contract filler album aimed to capitalize on the "Circus" comeback success, it was just pure business. I loved the music videos from this era tho, they were all high-budget, very story-driven, with concepts and variety with "Hold It Against Me" being a particular highlight in her videography.

    The critical reception was positive with Rolling Stone and NME giving very good scores to it, while her fans deal with this album in different ways, generally the US fans are more critical to this than her international fans who seem to appreciate the album these days, I personally think it's a good album and don't mind to enjoy it whenever I'm looking for bops. Nonetheless this was her last commercially successful era as a whole.
    When was the last time you rewatched videos?

    I re-watched them recently and I was shocked how bad they were, especially last 3.

    HIAM had great concept but it was obvious Britney's brain wasn't in the video, her dead eyes and terrible robotic moves are making video going from 8/10 to 4/10.

    TTWE is boring non-event, she's just underground and jumping around, again, terrible moves.

    IWG has too many cheap effects, it's not cool like I thought it was back in the day. It was actually a bit cringe to me now when I rewatched it.

    Criminal is ugly mes, idea is terrible, plus editing and those cheap Instagram effects make it look even cheaper.

    Alum on the other side, no matter how robotic and soulless it is, is actually great.

    • The thing with the Femme Fatale videos is that despite having good concepts and a decent budget, she looked ugly and fat in all of them (except Criminal), so that ruined them for me. It's a shame because Hold It Against Me had potential to be one of the greatest videos of her career, but unfortunately she was dead. Criminal is the only one I like.

                • I always liked "Criminal", I think it is the more "normal" pop-sounding single from FF, the other 3 were too heavily dance.

                  • Omg I've stumbled upon this video on youtube, I totally forgot that Crazy was covered here back in 2001, it was massive - and probably the main reason Crazy is one of Britney's signature songs here. She was our hottest singer ever

                    • Criminal was always my favourite from the album.

                      • Yeah, "Crazy" was also big over here back in the day. It's a fun song.

                              It's 9 years since she was killed so this video popped up on yt and the second I read Lezi I remembered how hard I bopped to this - before hearing Britney's song

                              • FF got old very quickly. I absolutely love Hold It Against Me, (Drop Dead) Beautiful, I Wanna Go, Big Fat Bass and Criminal. It’s not a bad album, it’s just not my ‘go to’ album.

                                  She had a habit of reworking US songs (unlike most of other Serbian girls who go for Greek/Turkish ones), right? I know Ksenija did That Don't Impress Me Much by Shania too.

                                    "Oops!... I Did It Again" is a song by American singer Britney Spears, from her second album of the same name.

                                      • I remember when the "Oops" single came out it felt like a huge event, there was so much hype about her after the BOMT era and she pretty much slayed big time when this came out, I know the music video looks super dated now but back in 2000 this was a seen as a brilliant presentation for her second studio album, EVERYONE was obsessed with her and everyone was like: "she definitely did it again".

                                        "Oops" is easily the biggest and most remembered female classic from the 2000 year these days.

                                          I think Music or Spinning Around could give it a run for its money, but it’s definitely at the top end.

                                            "Oops I Did It Again" has over 400million streams on Spotify+Youtube (the most streamed female song from 2000), people still play it and celebrate it until this day like no other female song from that same year.

                                                . . . Then there's gotta be a good reason for it to be in more playlists, maybe the song is considered cool and relevant enough to be included in more playlists in 2019?

                                                "Oops I Did It Again" has turned into an iconic pop song.

                                                  But in the end does it really matter how or why? It obviously stays on playlists because people don't skip it. Otherwise it would've been long removed. And the fact the song is doing that well despite Britney being in a generation that's currently struggling to find footing in streaming, just speaks that younger generations are much more fond of Ooops than the songs you've mentioned.

                                                  • The playlist thing could maybe make sense if the gap between Oops and those two songs wasn't 160-180 million. And this is just on Spotify alone.

                                                    No shade at all. I LOVE Music and Spinning Around, but they didn't define the early 00s like Oops did.
