Review of Scream and Shout by will.i.am ft Britney Spears
So, will.i.am or as he is also known William has a new track out. Just as you thought we had got rid of him until the next series of The Voice he is back. This is one of Will‘s mainstream dance acts, rather than his pop Hip Hop.
So from the very start you can see Britney Spears is trying to show she has cleaned up her luck and is back to how we remember Britney. Bizarrely, the language at the start of the track does the opposite. Britney you little potty mouth you.
The overall tune is a real manufactured dance backing track, very typical of will.i.am‘s new sound. However this one feels like it works. It isn’t a monster banging club tune, but the sound works pretty good with Will‘s limited vocals and middle of the road rapping. Britney Spears gives us a pretty decent performance, helping us forget some of the shockers she has had.
The video shows some odd images and the track isn’t going to be one that you will be playing in a years time. But overall, its pretty inoffensive and is likely to get you on your feet. Is Britney back? Well its an encouraging start, but there have been a few of those other the years so watch this space.
