Blender Magazine Reviews "Radar"

Written by admin. Posted in Blackout

pomvid-preview.jpgIn its fifth week on the Billboard 200, Britney Spears’ Blackout sits at no. 41, three spots behind Nickleback’s All the Right Reasons (in its 113th week on the chart) and one spot ahead of comedian Larry the Cable Guy’s Christmastime In Larryland. That’s pathetic … and sad, since Blackout happens to be Britney’s best album.

There are hits here, people! Along with the excellent “Piece of Me,” “Radar” is the second most obvious potential smash off the record, a bubblegum-electro dance floor jam with a hook most pop stars would kill for. On it, Britney sets her sights on a random hot guy. The lyrics read like a personal ad — “confidence is a must, cockiness is a plus” — and Britney sorta comes off like a desperate single girl here: “Tryin’ to make you understand you’re on my radar,” she pleads.

And just as the singer can’t rely on her superstar stature alone to snag the hot dude here, her tabloid omnipotence isn’t going to make people buy her LP. So, while Britney is seemingly on everyone’s radar nowadays, her Billboard popularity is careening off the map. Given the bevy of ace tunes found on Blackout, there’s reason to believe one high-quality (non-stripper-themed) video could change that.

    Blender hit the nail perfectly. This is a great album and it’s stupid that it’s doing so lousy. Well lousy for Britney.

    according to britney.com.br ,
    “Radar” will be the 3rd single……

    I hope “Break the ice” would be the 4th one.

    All the songs are good! But I think Toy soldier is really good and could be really popular. Radar is really good and catchy!! Luv u Brit! Don’t forget that people are probably copying the album like crasy so …

    The single and biggest reason the album isn’t selling well is the lack of promotion. Britney has always aggressively promoted her past albums which is why they have all been blockbusters. She has a magnetic personality and is an incredible performer. She needs to get her groove back and promote the record and with all the amazin tracks on it it will sell millions. Look what happened with pinks most recent record, it started slow like britney’s but went on to sell over a million more copies when Pink released U and Ur Hand and Who Knew and went on TV and toured in support of the album!
