Blackout – Britney Spears – 2007
With 20 classic pop singles and a greatest hits collection under her belt, Britney was at an all time high going into 2007. That said, with her Public Meltdown and a newly shaved head to follow, it’s ironic that 2007’s Blackout is the artist’s most well constructed and enjoyable record yet. With just two main producers on board, this is a frenetic record that features more catchy pop hooks than your average Hits Collection. Blackout defines everything Britney does well; outstandingly produced, auto-tuned to the brim, yet providing the most danceable and memorable tracks pop music will ever see.
Standout Single: Break The Ice
