An unfinished track that has yet to be confirmed, the midtempo “Passenger” continues to provide us more with Britney’s actual singing abilities (unlike the robotic “Work Bitch”). “Passenger” comes complete with lyrics about letting go of hesitation in a new relationship, instead of being the one in control.
These new songs remind us of an Oops!…I Did It Again-era Britney, and it seems like Britney Jean will be a more personal affair–as Britney said in a letter to fans October:
I poured my heart and soul into this album, and it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years.
I can’t believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but it’s true and I’m really proud of that.”
December 3. can’t come soon enough!
