Britney Spears’ Favorite Song She’s Ever Made Is a Deep Cut That Might Surprise You
Britney Spears has decades' worth of hit singles, but according to her latest Instagram dancing video, none of them is her favorite record she's ever produced.
"I know [the video]'s not that great, BUT the song is my favorite song I’ve ever done!!!" she revealed June 6 in a since-deleted video, which was soundtracked by 2007 Blackout album track "Get Naked (I Got a Plan)."
"It was really weird because my dancers took the stage for this song!!! Oh well!!! I listened to this song today and actually realized it for the first time," Britney added.
"I guess it was all those rules you know!!! Guess all those rules and not having a voice for 13 years in what I wanted gave a lot of people a thrill ride!!! Oh well!!! Psss no wonder I quit the business JUST SAYING!!!" the pop star continued, sharing that she plans to go shopping in London next week.
Britney Spears' Favorite Song Is "Get Naked (I Got a Plan)"
Britney Spears' favorite song from her own discography appears halfway through her critically-acclaimed, fan-favorite Blackout album, which was released in 2007.
The track, which was not released as a single, is sandwiched between the songs "Heaven on Earth" and "Freakshow."
Listen to Britney Spears' "Get Naked (I Got a Plan)":
"Get Naked (I Got a Plan)" was written by Corté Ellis, James Washington, Nate Hills, Marcella Araica and Nigel Talley, and was produced by Danja and Jim Beanz.
The Blackout album itself was executive produced by Spears and features writing and production from industry vets such as Kara DioGuardi, Keri Hilson, T-Pain and Pharrell, among others. The album is largely regarded as one of the greatest pop albums of all time.
"Blackout was the first time I worked with Danja, and he gave me the opportunity and freedom to work with more urban sounds and influences. It really inspired me! I also got the chance to sing more and stretch my voice in ways I hadn’t done before. The magic of Blackout was actually pretty simple. It just wasn’t so thought out. I just did what I felt, and it worked," Spears told Fader in 2017 during the 10th anniversary of the album.
Why Wasn't "Get Naked (I Got a Plan)" Released as a Single?
Blackout featured three singles — "Gimme More," "Piece of Me" and "Break the Ice" — but "Get Naked (I Got a Plan)" is the song that has apparently stood the test of time for Britney Spears.
Unfortunately, due to the timing of the record, Spears never got to fully do it justice when it was released, as she was put into her years-long conservatorship shortly after its release and then immediately cycled into the Circus era a year later, making Blackout the last album where Spears had complete creative control.
However, Spears performed many of her Blackout tracks on her 2009 Circus Tour.
On Blackout's fifth anniversary in 2012, Spears teased a potential follow-up album.
"Thank [you] all for loving the album as much as I do. Blackout 2.0?" she tweeted.
