So what did you guys think of this song and the video? Were you impressed, disappointed, indifferent? Did you expect the song to perform better on the charts or were you satisfied? Was it the best choice for the first single from ITZ?

Damn that video, THE killer, no one could have danced like Britney from those days (bye Janet)

But seriously, in today's scene, there's no one who could match Britney's dancing skills.

The song is decent, could have been better imo. The Rishi remix is flawless.

Poor Janet laugh.gif I still bop to Just A Little While, didnt deserve to bomb imo.

I agree, the song isn't great, but the beat is fab and I think its a good introduction to ITZ. Deserved to better in the US, but when the charts at the time were dominated by R&B there wasn't much it could do.

Where did that come from? laugh.gif I loved that track back in 2004, really deserved to do so much better.

As for MATM, I really liked it at the time, not one I'd choose to listen to now really.

Amazing Amazing Amazing. The song that turned me into a HARDCORE STAN (I was only a basic fan until then).

I loved it so f***ing much and I had zero pocket money back then so I actually asked someone to buy me the single for Christmas. I was so hungry for new amazing music. When they eventually bought me the entire album, I locked myself in my room for days and only listened to the album. I think I ended up losing a few pounds, too. So, THANK YOU Me Against the Music.

It came out around the time ITZ was out, so we would have to compare This Britney to That Janet I suppose wink.gif

Fabulous package. Britters and Madge work well together, the song is amazing and the video is perfect for the song as well. One of the most memorable music events of my adolescence.

Didn't have you down as a 'Slave' hater, Jake! Most unimpressed. Been listening to it a lot recently and pretty sure it's my favourite.
As for 'Me Against the Music', I've always thought there was something missing. The Kanye West remix is so good though.

ALMOST but not quite any, if you'd included 'boys' you would have been even further away

Would you guys have released MATM as the first single from ITZ?

Yes.

I still think it was an amazing introduction to the era, especially after the VMA performance.

People talk about its lack luster performance as a single in America, yet she was still coming off from being shunned by Clear Channel radio. And at the time she was all album sales instead of being a singles artist. It still opened with sales close to 700k and Toxic served its purpose of what made the album sell consistently over the next year, along with Everytime.

It was either Outrageous (what Jive wanted) or MATM (Britneys choice).

Toxic wasn't even in the running as a singles choice until Britney demanded it.
