Day 4 of My Week with Britney and today its the single Scream and Shout. Released in 2012, Scream and Shout is a track from Will.i.am and features Britney on vocals and in the video.
Scream and Shout is very electro-pop, in that cool style will.i.am is renowned for. Featuring on this track Britney became more cool by association. Its quite an upbeat track, and Brit's vocals, as ever, are distinctive, if a bit trying to be British in her accent at times. Brilliant collaboration here.
This track hit the top spot here in the UK charts. Will's second and her sixth. Pretty impressive. Its quite a dance oriented track, quite fast pace, and the lyrics are quite edgy. Well, for Britney anyway, if not for Will.
In essence, this is a song about going out on the town. Not that I am saying Will and Brit are a little into their own ego's but the lyrics "they watching us" and "all eyes on us" might suggest that they do seek attention some what!! Britney though, clearly wants to toughen up her image, and the line "Britney bitch" features throughout.
I do like the line "I want to scream and shout and let it all out". We all feel like that sometimes! Which brings me to the video. We see Britney looking very toned and hot and Will dressed mainly in black, and oddly wearing a crown saying "King". Hmm. Back to Britney - its good to see her back at her best. She looks smoking.
The video is very futuristic and both Britney and Will are in multiples of themselves. Its worth a watch this one. It has to be said, that Will.i.am is a talented guy, who co-wrote the song as well as singing it. This collaboration between the two of them makes will to me more appealing, and Britney just that bit more dance and edgy.
All in all, this is a great pop / dance track. I really liked it back in 2012 when it was released, but on listening again, it still sounds great. Go take a listen, and let me know what you think.
