Discover Britney – Song Of The Week – Edition 17 – Let Me Be

Welcome back to another edition of ‘Discover Britney,’ where we highlight Britney songs that were not released as singles. This way, you can share a song a week with people that have not yet had the chance to hear flawless tracks from Britney’s albums. Spread the word!

If you are an avid Britney stan, you will know that almost every track from a Britney album (in an ideal world) should have been released as a single. So many people have been deprived of some of the most timeless tracks and we feel that they should be heard. Join Britney Galaxy on Spotify, where we will add one track a week to our ‘Discover Britney’ playlist. Your gym playlist is set for life!

LET ME BE

Oh yes, you knew this one had to make the list! ‘Let Me Be,’ from Britney’s self titled third studio album is nothing less than a power anthem, a click your fingers, bob your head, do not underestimate my power, you don’t know me, but you are about to, kind of track…

‘Think that I might back down but I won’t,’ and so you shouldn’t! Britney’s third album was more personal than you think, it was simply Britney’s cry to be taken seriously as an adult and that she could make her own decisions, pretty much a mirror track to, ‘Overprotected.’ When you make your first million at the age of 17 – you kind of have the right to state your independence – right?

That guitar is played so smoothly, you could swear it was a harp! And those vocals!! Another track showing off how great of a writer Britney truly is. It was not until Britney’s fourth studio album (besides for super jam ‘Anticipating’ – A French only release) that her own penned tracks made the single cut and what a shame as this song would have been one of Britney’s strongest singles should it have been released! You only need to look as far as ‘Me Against The Music’ and ‘Everytime’ to see the impact of Britney’s self penned tracks! The track was produced by Rodney ‘DarkChild’ Jerkins, so you do not even have to click on the track to know it is an absolute masterpiece! If you have not heard the track before, make sure your weave is secure, it is about to get snatched!

Best Lyrics: ‘Think that I can’t stand on my own, It ain’t my philosophy, Won’t you just let me, let me be?’

Songwriters: Britney Spears, Josh Schwartz and Brian Kierulf

Producers: Rodney Jerkins, Kierulf and Scwartz

MAKE US OOOH!

It has been a week and we STILL have not listened to any other track other than ‘Make Me’ all week! The song is absolute FIYAH! So it comes as no surprise that Britney has hit the top 10 on Billboard’s Twitter Top Tracks! Everyone is completely freaking out at how amazing the song is!

Radio stations have been lapping it up – it was the most added song this week!!

Although there is still no news on the official video release date, the audio video has hit ten million views on VEVO!

Both Britney and G-Easy spoke about their amazing collaboration this week!

Oakland, Calif., rapper G-Eazy is used to people writing him adoring fan letters, but when Britney Spears heard this year’s breakout hit “Me, Myself & I” (recorded with New York singer Bebe Rexha), she wrote him an e-mail asking him to collaborate.

“I was on tour in Australia when I heard she wanted me to do something for her,” he tells The Post of the song “Make Me,” which was released last week. “There’s no way you can pass on Britney — I remember having a crush on her when I was 8! So we found a recording studio the same night to make sure it was done.”

“I was blown away when I first heard ‘Me, Myself & I,’ ” Spears tells The Post via e-mail. “As soon as I heard it, I thought it would be great to work with G-Eazy … I think he’s so cool.”

And you may want to take a seat for this one….

Liz Fanopoulos Meet and Greet story with Britney Spears! #PieceOfMe @britneyspears

It’s spotlight time on Britney Army member, Liz Fanopoulos! Liz will be sharing her exclusive meet and greet story with Britney-Galaxy! Check out her story below:

Guys omg !!! I met Britney Spears on 4/8/16!

I’ve only dreampt of this day for as long as I can remember…. I used to dance to Britney and sing even though I cannot sing lol since I was 2 years old! My sister Tara passed away a couple years ago but her and I just loved Britney so much! She was our biggest inspiration. My sis won the talent show to “BOMT” her 8th grade year. I for sure without a doubt thought I would be famous like brit one day! She’s such a motivater.

Here’s my story: Ally invited me to her birthday table in April right after I attended Britney’s show in February for my 21st birthday for my first time ever!! The show was amazing so I definitely couldn’t turn down going back, I saved up as much money as I could, and drove down to Vegas with a couple of friends! 10 hour drives suck don’t do it just fly lol! But anything is worth it for Britney! I think it didn’t really hit me that I was meeting Britney until an hour or so before the show I just go into shock mode when I’m in her surroundings! I could barely sleep the night before; woke up got as ready as I could and put on my 2001 VMAS inspired black lace Britney dress! and met up with ally, Tatum, Ildiko, Anne, and crystal before the show! So exciting. Everyone in the group had met Brit but me! We took pictures and were on our way. The backstage tour was awesome Fe is the sweetest soul I’ve ever met she totally melts my heart, and it’s so interesting learning all the facts about Brit dancers etc and the show!

Then it was time to meet Brit omg we stood in line & my stomach fell to my butt lol I was so nervous I had to pee even if I didn’t!! It was amazing going with girls who had met Brit and loved her as much as I do, and could give me all the advice they have I appreciated it so much! While waiting in line I contemplated all of the things I could should and wanted to say! They do warn you that Brit is shy so waiting in line I was about 5th to last and tried to remain calm

While turning the corner banner and all of the sudden the guard said ” come forward its your turn”, I turn the corner and there she is you guys BRITNEY FUCKING SPEARS! I introduced myself and tried to control word vomit, “hi Britney, my name is liz” you’ve been such an inspiration to me my whole life, this is my dress… I have your lyrics tattooed on me and here are my nails that I got done for you.. Brit held my hands smiling the whole time and said “OH MY FUCKING GOD ARE YOU SERIOUS THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING” “is that my fucking face” how did you do that holy shit you’re amazing! This is amazing I love it Etc etc. from there I had word vomit and don’t remember a thing I said because I was so In shock that she was holding my hands and screaming the f word lol. She wasn’t shy at all
She was so flippin sweet I was dying inside! Larrys wife interrupted and said hold on before you take this picture I need to see her nails and held my Hands and said they were amazing as well! I then asked Brit if I could switch her sides to my Good side she smiled laughed and said “oh yes ” in her cute accent. I asked if we could do a close hug type pose and she got close and they snapped the picture! I then gave her a hug and said “thank you so much you’re amazing” and she said you’re so welcome thank you enjoy the show” and I walked off

Bawling my eyes out and shaking in
Shock that I just met my idol, and the amazing Britney Spears. The show after was brilliant… Table seats were perfect I had the best view of our beautiful Brit !! Amazing night! I made some lifelong friends and adore every one of them. I think ally had a perfect Birthday and was so thankful she invited me. Hands down one of the best days of my life. Britney was absolutely stunning, (taller than I thought) amazing, so sweet, not shy to me at all, no awkwardness just giggles and love <3 thank you so much Britney! Dreams do come true. I will always admire you & I will replay this night and redo it a million times again if I was rich and had the money to!! Lol. AMAZING experience! If you’re debating it do it. Worth it over and over again & I can’t wait to meet her a second time and try to remember all of the things I didn’t get
To say because of total shock the first time lol!

SUCH AN AWESOME STORY! Thanks Liz for sharing with us!!

PS: We want to see those nails!

Hakan Nayır Meet and Greet story with Britney Spears! #PieceOfMe @britneyspears

meet 1

It’s spotlight time on Britney Army member, Hakan Nayir! Hakan will be sharing his exclusive meet and greet story with Britney-Galaxy! Check out his story below:

My name is Hakan Nayır, 28 years old, from Istanbul/ Turkey. Im a teacher and a grad-student(Human Rights). I ve been a huge fan of britney since march 2002. Why not earlier? cause i was 13 and wasnt into music before that, until i saw randomly Im not a girl, not yet a woman video on tv. After that eveything is history.

I ve been since collecting britney merchandise and trying to go to every tour possible. Its always hard to cross the ocean but for godney, you take that journey. As on now i have seen her live 25 times.

I have met britney first time in august 31 2014. My photo turned out very good but the problem was i couldnt talk ro her. People blame sometimes her being the shy one but trust me i am shyer. I couldnt say a word so the meeting was short, but a memory for alifetime.

One of my britney dreams was to visit a whole leg of a tour. I bought 10 tickets to almost every show in the june/july leg all my tickets were general admissipn except the meet and greet.

So lets come to today 9th of july 2016. Its also my birthday in my country where i was born Hamburg/Germany. So it was more exciting for me.

I went to the vip check-in at 6:30, i was afraid that i was late but i wasnt 6:45 we went into the theatre. There were 17 people in the backstage tour also people who were friends with dancers . Also very special guest one of britney’s older friends and also first designers a blonde 40-50yo woman. She designed the bomt tour outfits i hope she didnt hear britneys comment on the E! I am britney jean special hahahha…before the tour i told Fe about my letter that i wrote for britney and gave that to her. She promised that she will give it to britney or put it on her table.

i can compare everything with the normal piece of me and the remixed one. Backstage tour was updated with the remixed info so that was cool. The best part is of course the dressing room. Tish was there making a new accesorie for the touch of my hand perfomance the belt without crystals etc. She wore that this night. She expalined some details about the clothes how they made them. She showed retired costumes and why they retire. Cause they only have one and they cant wash it so if its done its done. She explained the pink/black with the shoulders ‘boys costume’ had to retire because pink studs were falling off and they couldnt find any to replace them.

After the tour we had about 20minutes to freshen up.
We lined at 8:15 but britney was late the meet and greet started around 8:45 and there were 32 people most of them won the tickets somehow they werent fans.
They updated the security with the detailed search, after the terrorist attacks and i liked it cause it always better be safe than sorry.’Cause i was one of the last ones going in this time i lined up first.

I was the first one to go in but Fe put the designer in as a suprise to britney, she was in shock and was so happy to see her.

Saw it all from the side.
After that it was my turn, i knew cause she was late and so many people lined, maybe the security would rush me but i was detirmined to open my mounth atleast.
I saw her with her pink beautiful dress, highheels, curly long hair, very orange looking tan.

Hakan: Hi my name is Hakan
Britney: hello welcome
Hakan: how are you?
Britney: Good how are you?
Hakan: Thank you. We met before but i couldnt talk to you cause im such a shy person. But this time i wanna tell you that i love you and i saw this show 22 times already.
Britney: what Ohh my God, hey did u hear that pointing me to Robin.
Robin: can believe it.
Britney: gosh thats awesome
Hakan: yeah i talked about it also in my letter did Fe give it to you?
Britney: yes she did its so sweet thank you ( she probably didnt read it cause she wouldnt be shocked then 22times thing, but she hadnt have time so im not unhappy she was just being nice not to disaapoint me.
Britney: should we take picture? (Pointing with her to hands my place next to her)
Hakan: ok. Can we do the peace sign with our fingers.
Britney: Sure sweety.

I put my hand to her shoulder and right next to her then the *click* we looked and the photgrapher checked the picture in the screen and said great.

Hakan: thank you bye
Britney: bye sweety.

Overall Britney was so sweet to me and everybody said wow u stayed long. The face was priceless when i said i saw the show 22 times and her telling Robin. I had the most amazing experinece more than i could dream of.
I didnt like the way i looked in my picture but britney looks awesome. The experience is so worth it.

After my experinece cant wait do it again.
After 22 times seing the show i will wait for awhile till the new songs are in then i ll be back for more.

justice for OVERPROTECTED
Hope she adss it to the laser act.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Hakan!
