Britney is the third studio album by American pop singer Britney Spears. The album was released worldwide on November 5, 2001 by Jive Records, and one day after in the United States.[1] Britney is notable for Spears' increasingly prominent role in the production, and being the transition album away from her bubblegum pop sound and teen pop image from her previous two albums, and leaned increasingly toward more R&B and Hip hop, along with more sexual influences. Although the album's singles were slightly less successful than her album's previews singles,[2] Spears assumed some creative control by co-writing five of the album's tracks.[3] The uneasy transactional music styles for the album Britney garned it at the number one position in the Billboard 200, in which gave the Jive label its eleventh chart-topping album. The album became 2001's most successful debut by a female or female group artist.[4] The album's success made her the first female artist in music history to have her first three studio albums to debut at the number one spot.[3][5] This record however would later be broken by Spears herself with her 4th studio album In the Zone which charted in the same position.

For sure the best track on the album, and her best up until then, and quite possibly her best 'til now.

Probably one of my favorite albums from her after In the Zone. Loved "Im a slave 4 U" Boys (remix version better), When I found you, Before the last goodbye, and Anticipating.

This album has a lot of hidden treasures on it and is by and far one of her more overlooked albums as far as the overall quality of it is concerned. I think the music got overlooked in favor of her increasingly sexualized image. A shame that U.S. radio boycotted her during this area as this album could have had so many great singles that just smashed.

Favorite tracks:

I'm A Slave 4 U
Overprotected (Original)
I Run Away
Cinderella
Before The Goodbye
Lonely
What It's Like To Be Me

Great album! I agree that's actually quite underrated, especially compared to the rest of her catalogue!

It has some amazing tracks like:

Lonely
Cinderella
Bombastic Love
When I Found You
Before The Goodbye
What It's Like To Be Me

Notice I didn't pick any singles. I always MUCH prefer Brit's album tracks to her singles for some reason :-?

I love how she experimented with a little R&B and dance here. I miss this era the most! She was everywhere, and who couldn't forget that this is like the soundtrack to the Crossroads movie? :lol: 8-)

I also loved "I Run Away", that's one of her best tracks. :)

This is probably her second-best album, behind "Blackout."

So many tracks here are very radio-friendly. This had the best songs, i can't stop listening to this album when it came out, In the Zone was great but this was a stronger album! :D

When I heard I'm A Save 4 U I was like "Hey I've heard this before!" I love it! I'm so impatient to get her albums! I want them all physically so I have to wait a bit longer!

What is it?



and I think they shouldn't have released I'm A Slave 4 U as the lead single cause it the video was just to sexual and yes she was growing but that was kinda fast. I think something transitional first. (MAYBE i'm Not A Girl...) and then maybe Overprotected followed by Slave. from what I have heard so far from this album, it deserves more than 4.3m in sales! And this follows up 2 DIAMOND albums. I think the singles were good choices, just not the order of them. (I've been wanting to say that or a while now)
