New Song: Britney Spears – ‘Clumsy’

Published: Thursday 11th Aug 2016 by Sam

Britney Spears is whipping up buzz for her new album ‘Glory.’

With the set’s August 26th release rapidly approaching, the Pop titan seems keen to give the masses a taste of what to expect ahead of its arrival.

‘Clumsy’ is the latest cut to receive the release treatment and follows official single ‘Make Me’ and promo track ‘Private Show.’

Helmed by Talay Riley, Alex Nice, and hitmaker Oak, the song awaits below…

As the third track serviced, ‘Clumsy’ re-affirms that the album has a specific and cohesive sound. For, sonically, it mirrors the breezy, edgy and (somewhat) minimalist direction offered by both ‘Make Me’ and ‘Private Show.’

Sadly, it also struggles with similar drawbacks too.

Because, while it boasts fresh production and a memorable melody, the song kinda misses the mark.

It drives on with no clear destination, with the post-bridge being a particular a non-event. What’s more, the lack of actual chorus is irksome and takes away from what could have been a much fuller listening experience. There’s all the makings a bop, but not enough connecting of the dots.

In many ways, ‘Clumsy’ plays like a shiny BMV with no gas. Pretty to look at (or, in this case, hear), but ultimately purposeless.

Your thoughts?

    C’mon Britney. You can do better than this, we know it.

    • maurice August 11, 2016

      her last sickening, and I mean SICKENING, album was ‘blackout’
      it all went down from there.

  2. LB August 11, 2016

    Official, this will be Brit Brit’s best album, I absolutely love this song.

    I never thought she would be able to give another In the zone & Blackout and boy was I right, she instead gave us something better.

    Congrats Brit Brit and good-luck.

    I now see why RCA has ramped up the promo, the album sounds solid so far.

    • maurice August 11, 2016

      LOOOOL, this is neither of those songs.

      Blackout was more R&B than anything, In The Zone had R&B touches.
      Her forthcoming new album just sounds like a bunch of instrumental thrown together, mixed with bad lyrics and horrendous music videos.

      That make me video was an utter mess. She’s like 34 and clapping like a school girl over seeing another man’s abs. GUURL. Britney can do so much better, I know it, but she’s playing the puppet to her label right now.

    • tGj = Glory’s Hole August 11, 2016

      Damn TGJ is ALWAYS #ANTIBRITBRIT. Let go of the bias or stop mentioning her altogether please. Clumsy and first 2 tracks on Glory are great ao far. Fun, refrshing and gives us Britney’s southeb raspy voice again. Constantly attacking a seasoned artist is sad and not indicative of a legitimate publication; be it online or not….. Looking forward to Glory

  3. LB August 11, 2016

    The album so far sounds like a modern twist to Janet Jackson’s All for you.

    Clumsy sounds like a valley girl twist to Janet’s son of a gun remix feat Missy. Good one.

    • Cough Cough August 11, 2016

      Lies. All For You is iconic and fun and. Deep. None of these songs are any of that

  4. Indie August 11, 2016

    BRILLIANT!!! This is her best album in years and i’ve only heard 3 tracks, Glory is Glorious!

  5. HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

    I shade the bish! But can’t shade her direction of music! I have not disliked one song she has released this era! Still think the album will flop but oh well she can get my coins! Now let me just bump this song on my PS4 mic as I murder these queens on BF4 ?!

    • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

      Girl stfu and focus on graduating highschool

      • HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

        Ugh GTFO my replies you perverted pedo.phile! You stay thirsty for underage di.ck!

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

        Bitcccch a receipt for that claim? A Lil boy can do nothing for me try again hoeeeee.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

        Ewww why is this pedo.phile still in my replies being perched? It needs medical help like seriously. These split personalities are getting out of hand! ????

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

        Oh no receipt lollol the only pedos are yo nïggas Tyler and Analiseeeeee the people ass you continually lick.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

        Girl stfu and focus on an education so you don’t have to stay selling your bussie to 60yr old men! You’re tired and boring. Your thirst for attention is getting played out. You claim to be the most relevant bítch on this blog (kiii) but clearly you aren’t. You just came for 4 people who could’nt careless if you were dead or alive. These tired recycled split personalities are old, at this point it ain’t even funny to drag you it’s just sad. But I get it sis, if my brother offed himself and my family disowned me, I’d be a miserable crackhead whoré of a MESS as well. So i see why you cling to people who talk about you behind your back. These snakes that kii kiii with you and laugh when they see you stan fRih so hard yet never once claim you nor acknowledge your love for their queen! This cry for attention on a blog with randoms is a clear cry for help. Rekindle your broken relationship with your family, because finding love and acceptance on a blog is not the place. Now goodnight or day sweetie because lord knows you need some of him in your life. Have fun seething over me Rosie, Tyler and Annalise. ???

      • HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

        Lmao damn you’re just so desperate for attention. Look at the self-proclaimed most “relevant” bítçh on this blog drop every name in the book for some attention. Guess that’s what happens when your family disowns you. A bítçh gotta resort to a blog for love and acceptance lmfaooo!!!

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

        You sound pressed sis

      • HailLegendBeysus August 11, 2016

        ?…. Did we shift personalities again? Who was it that slithered their way into MY reply section!?

    • Mark111 /.\ August 11, 2016

      You on PS4? What games do you have? Uncharted 4 or Overwatch by chance?

  6. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

    Not checking but I’m sure she’ll outsell Lana. #HiRosie ?

  7. KoolKid August 11, 2016

    Britney needs to work with Danja again. Blackout was her best album!

  8. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? August 11, 2016

    She’s gonna flop.

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      Britney Jean had the same first week sales as Zayn’s debut…so what does that make your fave?

      • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? August 11, 2016

        Zayn still has time to grow though. Britney’s career came to an abrupt end back in 2009.

      • Selenator *Feel Me* August 11, 2016

        Lol Zayn stalled at less than 500k worldwide even after debuting at #1 everywhere with Pillow Talk. All that hype too. I guess all those fans would rather look at his face than listen to his music

  9. truthtea August 11, 2016

    This song is a complete ripoff of Nick Jonas Levels! Horrible vocals!

    • Danzoua’s coming out partying August 11, 2016

      Stop trying to start a fan war between Britney & Nick fans.

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      What kind of a reach lolololollol! Britney owns this genre of dance pop music!

  10. Meteorite August 11, 2016

    I…I don’t know what to think…I can’t tell if I like it or not…idk

  11. Meteorite August 11, 2016

    AHHHHHH TELEPATHY JUST DROPPED!!!!!!

  12. Bee August 11, 2016

    It’s a good song I’m pretty sure it’s a album filler track but the sound of this album is very promising & we still have 14 tracks to go

  13. Meteorite August 11, 2016

    YASSSSSS HUNTY CHRISTINA READ MY MIND INDEED!!!! I wanna get my roller skates on with some booty shorts and dance right now!!!!! Getting My Life Right Now!!!! YASSSSSS!!!!! ?????????????

  14. MusicFan103 August 11, 2016

    I didn’t care for it much. Its not terrible but it is no “Till The World Ends.” That was a major Britney club banger and I expected more of that than this.

    In terms of “Clumsy” songs I will stick to my beloved hit by Fergie Ferg!

  15. LB August 11, 2016

    Telepathy is just ok for me, it sounds like a grower but…meh

    • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

      Random : I’m listening to britney jean I don’t understand why her team didn’t release “Alien” or “Tik Tik Boom” as singles they both seem like potential hits

      • LB August 11, 2016

        Tik tik boom most definitely should have been a single, her team messed up there.

    • Meteorite August 11, 2016

      I grew listening to disco so I understand what they were going for (not to say anyone wouldn’t) but I am also very familiar with Nile Roddgers chic work ethic. But disco in general is all about the visual and the song goes to a 1970’s based show. So if you get that era and what not you’ll get the song. So imagine bell bottoms Afros and people dancing off on rolling skates and dreamy lights and funky clothes and just fun!

      • LB August 11, 2016

        Good information, most definitely will look forward to the visual. Hopefully she delivers something visually stunning.

      • Meteorite August 11, 2016

        @LB
        You know Beyoncé’s “Blow” video? Imagine that kind of video/visual with the song and you’ll pretty much have the 70’s

  16. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

    Britney jean had better material imo

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      ? You being serious. This album is going to s*** on BJ! You heard Just Luv Me snippets, it’s like an upgraded version of Good For You!

  17. Jacob August 11, 2016

    This song sucks! I loved her last album Britney Jean even though if flopped. It’s so underrated
    Hope I like the rest this album

    • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 11, 2016

      Perfume, Alien, and Tik Tik Boom are such gems.

  18. Wash yo mouth pls August 11, 2016

    Sam what’s a BMV?

  19. Jay Jay August 11, 2016

    Come on Brit!!!! Give us Tik Tik Boom/ Inside out/ Till the World Ends

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      It just a buzz track, wait for the full album!

  20. gio88 August 11, 2016

    are u serious? this song is great!

  21. BLACKOUT TBH August 11, 2016

    The delusion is real. This is easily shaping up to be her best album since Blackout. Accept the slayage into your heart. The Princess of Pop has returned.

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      Best album since Femme Fatale*, every song on that album is solid!

      • lilbb August 11, 2016

        Yesss literally every song! Idk how people say it’s not good. Even her processed vocals sound perfect.

  22. Suicide Blonde August 11, 2016

    Not sure about this.

  23. Rih Up August 11, 2016

    Lol..I’ll pass. Her voice is so irritating, giving me helium teas.

    • Dem Lessers August 11, 2016

      Well someone must be eating a lot of curry GOAT.

  24. Anastasia Beaverhousen August 11, 2016

    It’s a cute bop. Give a good visual for this Britney! I like the sonics going on this era..

  25. Jacob August 11, 2016

    I hate her blackout album so if this is anything like that I won’t be buying

  26. Chrisfresh August 11, 2016

    Why is Sam so pressed? Or just a hater
    I will say the album doesnt seem to have a theme but im loving how its a side of Brit we’ve never seen or heard

    • Liam August 11, 2016

      He clearly doesn’t Brit if it was Rita Ora or one of his other faves singing it he would be singing a different tune ….I rarely post on her cause he’s very bias for a “journalist” and the only way for hits it seems to start stan wars or drag other artists he don’t like to drum up wars he know gonna give him hits..guess that’s how he gotta make his coins ?

  27. Liam August 11, 2016

    I like the song it’s nice and I love how she’s actually singing and sounds present in the records….with a dope visual this song can slay cause it’s really catchy! I also got to heard the intro track Invitation and a few other snippets this is gonna be her best work in a while….sonically it’s a hybrid of In The Zone/Blackout

  28. Keegan Parker August 11, 2016

    Britney LEAVE US ALONE I was a huge fan years ago this is horrible..can she sit down…those vocals b**** this a mess I’m upsett

  29. Chileplease August 11, 2016

    Return to sender. Do not want.

  30. J-Mar August 11, 2016

    This era is a mess for s****** spears she gonna flop this era.

  31. eric August 11, 2016

    Heavily processed vocals again?! What kind of wack engineers did she work with for this album? The sound is terrible.

  32. Slayriah Carey/Nicole Slaysinger >>> your fave August 11, 2016

    This song just gave me cancer.

    • Selenator *Feel Me* August 11, 2016

      That happened to me and everyone else when Nicole Schrizzelahfalkshfkasfsinger tried it with that LOUD reject album sis. I’m still recovering.

      • Slayriah Carey/Nicole Slaysinger >>> your fave August 12, 2016

        Oh please it wasn’t even that bad compared to rihanna herself. Besides her label pressured her to work with RedOne.

        That album still better than anything from s******

      • Slayriah Carey/Nicole Slaysinger >>> your fave August 12, 2016

        Ha you’re a selena gomez fan? Selena gomez? Seriously? And you wanna talk about Nicole? You have the woat taste, s****** spears, selena gomez, I bet you like justin bieber too. Selena is just britney 2.0, same shitty generic songs, same lack of vocal talent, selena just isn’t nearly as annoying and slutty as s****** but they both suck and are talent-less babbling idiots!

  33. Slayriah Carey/Nicole Slaysinger >>> your fave August 11, 2016

    F**k s****** and this obnoxious excuse for a song!

    If you actually go and buy this off of iTunes or wherever, then you’re even more stupid than s****** herself!

    Wait is that possible?

    I’d throw my money down the toilet before I bought a s****** song! It’s about the same thing anyway.

  34. Selenator *Feel Me* August 11, 2016

    This will be her best album since Blackout, yall are delusional. The album sounds cohesive sonically. This is no doubt an album filler but still a bop nonetheless. Idc if she flops, I want her album!
    #Glory

  35. Mark111 /.\ August 11, 2016

    RESPECT! Brit is taking chances and doing something different. The past3 albums been EDM trash, Brit was that pop star that took Pop to a new direction, just like her mothers Janet & Madonna. But ever since the meltdown, you can tell that her team played it safe by trying to become OLD Britney vs letting this woman grow. *Plays Consideration*

  36. brazen beauty August 11, 2016

    Nice sound and beat. Love the vocals.

  37. Slayriah Carey/Nicole Slaysinger >>> your fave August 12, 2016

    But why her voice gotta be so annoying? I’d rather listen to a baby screaming than this trash. As for the beat, brit is back to her stupid generic poppy crap. At least make me was a little different, this is just…just trash!

    There is no need for s******’s untalented ass in music, why can’t she just retire with her retarded has-been ass and save all of our ears!

  38. ow Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuyiji August 12, 2016

    Nice beat and song

  39. Junior in Jamaica August 12, 2016

    She needs to just STOP all together. Those vocals are chopped and SCREWED!
